After featuring the rad tattooed/Superhero wedding
yesterday, I was left with one big question mark over my head... What type of flowers made up the bride's stunning bridal bouquet??
Well, I did some digging, tweeting, and surfing, and it turns out that the deep fuchsia flowers
that resembled a piece of coral are called Cockscomb (or Bombay) Celosias
. Celosias are in season from summer until November, and I just love these for bridal bouquets, groom or groomsmen boutonnieres, and really, any floral arrangement for your wedding! They are so unique, lovely, and eye-catching! And you cannot beat the rich color and texture that celosias bring to the table!
Here are a few beautiful cockscomb celosia arrangements to put a spring in your step!
