    I am hoping you mean flowers on the side of the road…because up here in New England we have issues with people taking flowers from people’s yards and it is considered stealing, not to mention very, very rude.

    It crossed my mind to use wild growing flowers for my wedding (however- not wildflowers since some of them are illegal to pick).  Stuff like daisies or Queen Ann’s Lace or tigerlillies which grow all over the the place.

    I knew a bride whose mother picked flowers from their property to make the bride’s bouquet and it was lovely.

    But I agree- that picking from someone’s garden or landscaping w/o permission is a no-no!  I wouldn’t want to start my married life with bad karma!

    I totally understood your original fantasy and I had honestly never thought about it. Mainly because there ane not many pretty flowers in my area. But it is a very funny thought! Especially with the crazy prices for flowers!!

    We used to have people steal the roses out of our yard when I was growing up… I wonder if they were actually trying to make wedding bouquets???

    If it were totally legal, I’d think it was a great idea! I’m actually thinking about looking up local flowers that bloom in late winter to grow myself for my wedding now!

    in spain at Christmas they have towers of pointsettas everywhere. I was leaving a bar one night on vacation and i saw a car pull up pop the trunk- like 4 guys got out and packed the trunk with the poitntsettas and they drove off. It was so wierd. So I guess it happens.

    Hahahaha I love the mental image I got from this post. Amazing. I think it’s a hilarious idea but not worth getting arrested for. Imagine trying to explain that to your FI…

    I can kind of see this happening on a Bridezillas episode.

    I have heard on more than one occassion of brides "borrowing" flower from freshly buried gravesites.  TACKY and bad karma.  I also work in a bridal shop during the day and I would say 20-30% of the brides we meet ultimately steal something from the shop or intentionally change prices on items.  BAD KARMA and I personally hope for a hex on their wedding day…a giant stye on the eye or pimple on the nose…that kinda thing.  It isn’t just brides, it is bridal party, bride and sisters, in one case bride, MOB and GMOB!!!!

    It always really bothered my parents when people would sneak a bloom off our flowers in the yard because they were "sooo pretty". Especially from our lilies! So I would never do it because people invest a lot of time and money to have beautiful gardens (and so do their kids). I would never take from the public gardens, especially wildflowers because in some areas (like here) its illegal and many volunteers spend endless hours caring for and raising funds to preserve the areas in which they grow.
