A big fat gypsophila wedding...

Gyp seems to be really popular this summer. Having gone out of fashion for a while it has made a staggering come back in recent years and can look absolutely fab when used massed on its own. We have done two particularly lovely gyp weddings over the last month where we have used it to make big ‘clouds’ of white prettiness coming out of tall glass vases for the tables or filled tall zinc planters with it to stand at the entrance to a wedding venue. It looked great.

If you have your heart set on gyp for your big day – that’s great, but don’t just choose it because you think it’s a cheap option. Although it looks like it won’t take many stems to fill a vase, make a simple hand tie bouquet or fill a few vintage milk jugs on a table – florists need to use quite a bit to get the lovely, full, massed effect.  If we use too few stems, it can look a bit thin and sad!

 That said, when used well, it can look great and we especially loved using lots of pink and white gyp at the Tithe Barn last month where the surroundings were perfect. We filled milk churns, vintage cream milk jugs, jam jars, made the bride and bridesmaids bouquets with it and even the buttonholes. We’re waiting for the proper photos, but here are a few to give you a taster!

Why not have a look at our bouquets for some more inspiration!
