I am not having professional flowers done, I am going just get fresh flowers from a local farm that sells at the market. I am going to just have a simple bouquet for myself and then my table settings will just take a steam or two here and there. I want to skip flowers for everyone else because i am not getting them done professionally. We are not doing a wedding party, and our wedding isn’t going to be super traditional, no tuxes, or suits if I have it my way. Whats your thoughts on skipping flowers for moms, grandmas and the men in my life(even the groom)? The only person in my family who will care is my grandma, but she constantly looks for something to complain about when it comes to me and honestly if I could not invite her I wouldn’t so her opinion doesn’t matter :p

@sarapep83: I refuse to spend a small fortune on flowers, so we are only doing flowers for the myself and the groom. And those are artificial and we are purchasing them from http://www.plumeriasweddingflowerboutique.com/ so that I may frame them for our house later. We may also go to the grocery and purchase some fresh ones for the reception.
Regarding such wedding “rules”, here’s my take: how is it a rule if there is a) no one enforcing it and b) no punishment if you break it?
If something doesnt make sense to you or doesnt resonate with you, skip it 🙂

@sarapep83: I dont think its a problem to skip flowers for everyone else. Personally I would make the groom a boutonniere to make him stand out a little more!

I planned to do this, but my fiance looked at me, agast, and said that our parents birthed us so the least we can do is buy them some friggin’ flowers. Ugh. I don’t see the point. Bride’s bouquet? Important. Groom’s bout? Also important. I like the look of bridesmaid bouquets, but I plan on keeping them super cheap and sticking to seasonal flowers. Flowers for anyone else seems over the top.
