Y’all, these aren’t your mama’s bouquets, but they might be your grandma’s bouquets. After all, the whole inspiration behind Norma Dean Designs is Ms Norma Dean herself — a lady from the deep South who knew a thing or two about finding beauty in the everyday. The NDD gals have taken this spirit to heart, collaborating with their brides to create modern heirlooms that will have pride of place long past the wedding day.
I could spend hours looking at these beauties, they’re that intricate! And full of stories, too. I love the idea of incorporating a rolled up love letter, or possibly a flower formed from a page torn from an old Bible. (One of the weddings you’ll see in V5 had boutonnieres made from pages of the Book of Acts, since it’s the groom’s favorite book, and I thought it was the sweetest idea!)
To get your inspiration wheels turning, take a peek at the different collections on the Norma Dean site — I’m particularly fond of the Country Cotton, Nautical Charm, and Soft Romantic styles. In addition to bridal bouquets, most styles have coordinating boutonnieres, ring bearer and flower girl items, wrist cuffs, and bridesmaid bouquets!
The Norma Dean Designs gals use all natural and eco-friendly materials, and they take great pride in the workmanship of each piece. Impressively, their prices are quite reasonable, too, even when compared to fresh flowers. Make sure to check out the Norma Dean site to see all the goodness in store!
