STEPHANOTIS: THE NOW AND FOREVER FLOWER

Little clusters of flowers in the shape of stars with a pearl in the middle.  Stephanotis  seems the traditional, now and forever bridal flower not only for bouquets but hairstylists and clothing designers are incorporating them into wearables. The Victorians put Stephanotis up there as the end all be all for a happy marriage.  Check out almost any mid-Century wedding photograph and Stephanotis is most likely in the bride's bouquet. Fast forward sixty some years and designer Yumi Katsura has brought out the ruffled organza dress below and a bodice covered in them. Just how would you use this little flower to brighten up your special day . . . .?
