After the fantastic news that our venue will let us have confetti and let my flower girls drop rose petals, I have a new obsession…FLOWER GIRL BASKETS! I spent all day yesterday looking online until I set me heart on some cute posy wicker baskets.
I’ll have 2 flower girls (FI’s two nieces) They will be aged 5 and 10 at the time (nope, I dont think 10 is old, and she’s VERY excited). They will wear white dresses with pink petals inside the hem and 3 pink roses on the pink waist band. (Bridesmaids will wear light blue cocktail dresses and have pink rose wrist corsages, and my flowers will be pink too-peonies).
So my florist and I think pink petals in a basket is a great idea. I just kinda didnt want to get excited about it until I knew the venue would allow it (so many horror stories I have heard/seen on weddingbee. I didnt want to ask the venue directly cuz I kinda didnt want to hear the NO and stop day dreaming! haha. Anyway my Maid/Matron of Honor thought she’d ask yesterday, and they said yes I could go as crazy as I like on the confetti and petals! So my day of basket research started and I decided posy baskets was it.
But I was unsure about what size baskets…..so I got a set of 4! For a bargain price of £9.50 and free postage! So I’ll have the ease of deciding at the time which one gets what size. I’ll decorate them myself with pink poly ribbon and pink roses (possibly foam roses) and not cover them (not a fan of the satin/lace/any other material covered baskets- I like baskets that look, well-baskety). So that’s that.
Anyway, this is a totally pointless post I just wanna be happy somewhere! haha x
