Flower Friday

So, remember how I said it was impossible to get a flower (and cake) consultation on such short notice? To my relief, a fabulous florist was available for our date AND was able to do a consultation over-the-phone! Flowers might possibly be my favorite detail of weddings, or even in life (right up there with glitter, hehe). We touched on so many different things:

Bridal Bouquet

Bridesmaid’s Bouguets

Groom’s Boutonniere

Groomsmen’s Boutonniere’s

Flower Girls’ Petals + Flower Crowns

Ring Bearer’s Boutonniere

Moms’ Bouquets

Dads’ Boutonnieres

Grandmas’ Corsages

Grandpas’ Boutonniere’s

WOW. That’s a lot of flowers, and that’s just for wedding party to wear! We also started looking into the flowers for the aisle, including aisle markers at the end of each row and pre-petalling the aisle (in case our little flower girls decide they don’t want to throw any petals)! We went over the whole “feel” we want at the ceremony and how our arch will look, etc. We have a lot of space on the lawn so it is important to me that the flowers do not look scarce. I have not narrowed down which flowers I want for the bouguets yet, because I love so many different styles. Here are my favorites…

With so many beautiful bouquets, how will I ever narrow it down? I just die a little for that last one. So not my normal style because it’s so colorful and bold… but I am really loving it! Anyways a few other photos of inspiration are for decor…

Honestly, what flower do I NOT like? Can’t think of a single one. We are taking our engagement photos tomorrow so I should have a busy, wedding-inspired weekend!
