Matching Bridesmaids Posies & Headresses

Picture
When you choose artificial flowers, makes sense to have matching bridesmaids posies and headresses.
 
This helps to keep a theme running through the wedding, ensuring consistency.  

Artificial flowers for the bridesmaids, especially flower girls, eliminate the worry of wasps and bees around their heads if it is a hot day, which, of course, you hope it will be :) 

In this example, we used tiny, mulberry paper roses, in alternating colours.  The Bride carried a posy of ivory and red foam roses, and wanted the flower girl to carry just red, as her dress was ivory with a red sash.

Mulberry paper roses are available in a large selection of colours and two sizes - 10mm and 15mm (pictured above)

When thinking of ordering matching bridesmaids posies and headresses, always check the sizes.  It is worth noting that an average sized circle headress for a flower girl aged 2-6 years is 16inches.  For a teen-adult it is 18inches.  

To measure, run a tape measure around the head where you would like the headress to sit.  If you cant find a tape, do the same thing with a length of ribbon or string, then measure that!

Similarly, the average size for a flower girls posy is 6inches across and a bridesmaids posy 8inches across.
