So on a Pinterest binge last night I came across a really unique bouquet arrangement featured on The Wedding Chicks where chili peppers were added to a floral arrangement to give it a spicy flair.
I think that's an amazing statement piece, and in the Wedding Chicks' article shows how the peppers were perfectly placed in many facets of a particular wedding. I have an obsession with spices and have an array of different peppers growing (my habaneros are going to be Bonsai'd, but that doesn't have anything to do with weddings...that'll be for another blog I'm planning) and chili peppers can be utilized in the same way the ever-changing succulents are in weddings.
I came up with a simple board of inspiration to go alongside the chili-bouquet: a red dip-dyed wedding dress is easy to do, have a spicy taco bar, make your bridesmaids sexy in a red hot lace dress that they'll actually want to wear after the wedding, and accent your peppers with red flowers.
Once my peppers come in I will attempt to recreate the bouquet with one of our awesome florist friends!
