Flowers, flowers, flowers
February 27, 2012
I’ve written multiple times about how my flowers will be very limited…night wedding=candles. However, there are still a few floral things that I want. Side note: if flowers weren’t so dang expensive, I’d cover everything in GIGANTIC bright blooms. I’m definitely not the girl who says “I don’t care about flowers, they just die,” (check my Pinterest for proof) I do in fact love flowers, plants, herbs and most things that grow (I’m including animals in most things that grow, but that’s a whole other story…we’re getting a puppy soon, right JB?). Here’s my checklist of the things I need in terms of flowers and my inspiration for each of them.
1. My bouquet: I have fallen hard for big open king proteas and I want at least one honker in my bouquet! Here’s my mini rant about bouquets…I hate it when bouquets are round, hemisphere-shaped (as JB says). I just don’t think I can take another round-ish perfectly situated bundle of pink roses.
2. My bridesmaids’ bouquets: I want something simple and clean, but still whimsical and fun. Too many adjectives? Maybe.
3. Garland: I am going to enter the ceremony from my front door, so I would love something to frame the door and make it look a bit more festive. However, I absolutely love our door and I would never want to cover it up with a wreath, so a garland seems perfect (plus my favorite decoration that my mom puts up is the garland around our door at Christmas, it is just so welcoming).
4. Other randos: I have to have a kissing ball at my wedding AND look at this swag of herbs…oh lord, I gotta have it. My third and final random floral need are those GORGEOUS garlands to hang on the backs of our newlywed dinner chairs. P.S. Both the kissing balls and the herb swag are for sale for $39 each at Pottery Barn and William Sonoma respectively (who knew!).
