In Season Now: Ways to Incorporate Chamomile & Feverfew Into Your Wedding Flowers


Even though fall is right around the corner, we're trying to hang on to the last vestiges of summer and today's post on chamomile and feverfew is exactly what we need. Chamomile (yep, the kind used as tea!) and feverfew are both daisy-like plants and look very similar with their petite white petals and bright-yellow centers. Both are a great choice for summer weddings when they're plentiful at the flower market. The cheerful blooms are a great way to add whimsy to bouquets and centerpieces, but also look great on their own. Check out our favorite ways to incorporate these happy flowers into your wedding.
