- Wedding: December 2009
Ok so I saw a picture and it inspired my whole florals concept.
My colors are a dark red (burgundy but without the purple undertone) and white. So I want Dark Red roses (I think the black magic rose or red velvet roses would work best) in a cluster with a few scattered stephanotis (I know they are expensive…) with pearl pics.
I was thinking since the bridesmaids are in red I would do an inverse of my bouquet. They will have smaller clusters of white roses with red scattered flowers-I was thinking maybe gerber daisies or carnations. Not really sure which maybe there is a better choice?
For the 8 man round tables I am looking for a dome shaped arrangement of the same red roses and scattered stephanotis (maybe there is a cheaper small white flower I could use that lends a similiar effect?) We are going to have a hurricane glass with a votive in the center.
Then on two large fireplace mantels we are going to have a kind of organic looking spray of roses and greenery, like there is a rose bush growing on it.
Anyway thats what I have in mind. What I don’t know is if I should go with ordering bulk flowers or go with a florist or go with silk. I am not sure how large the arrangements need to be. I am pretty small overall tho I am 5’5". 3 of the bridesmaids are shorter than me and the last on is 5’8" or so.
Any thoughts? [attachment=220675,22183]
