- Wedding: September 2010
I have been looking into flowers for our September wedding and I am trying very hard not to spend too much as our budget is not very large. I have saved this part for last as I dreaded it the most. I plan on boutonierres for all of the guys and a small bouquet for myself (maybe 12 roses). Too often do I see the bouquets tossed on a table to die (even if placed in water). I would hate to pay $50+/bouquet for 5 bridesmaids only to see them wilt and die. It seems like such a waste of money.
I thought about a single rose for each of them but then I saw the idea of parasols, which would be perfect for our outdoor Texas wedding. Would parasols (light yellow) with maybe a bracelet corsage be a bad idea? My mother and the FMIL have both said they do not want corsages, so I thought this would be great for the girls. The parasols would still allow them to hold something and shade them from the sun. Am I being to practical?
Also, any corsage ideas would be helpful too. If it helps, our wedding colors are burgundy, navy and a very light yellow to accent. I was looking at Black Magic roses and Sahara roses with maybe hypericum or freesia. The yellow roses are too bright. I was thinking maybe navy or light yellow ribbon.
