- Wedding: October 2011
Ok. Here is the situation. I’m literally just going to have to pray my Bridesmaid don’t see this, but I need help. I’m having fresh flowers at our wedding….. And yes, we didn’t go all out, but we did get the necessities. Ya know, alter flowers, pew flowers, bridesmaids bouquet, corsages, boutonnieres…so on and so forth. When I mentioned to my maids that I coudln’t go to the extreme, my BF/Bridesmaid absolutely insisted on hand making mine…. She thought financially it would help. Which is fine and flattering and I love her for it. Issue: she is broke and has money to buy the “workings” (which I have no idea who is suppose to buy these things and I am MORE than happy to pay for it) but I have no earthly idea what to buy. And I would ask her but I’m afraid that if that happends, maybe I will feel a little pressured to buy “makings” that I don’t so much like because I do want a pretty specific look, and I know she will tend to pick things slightly cheaper, which makes sense because she knows we are on a budget. But I really have my heart set on a “not so thrifty” but not outreageous look. Also, I’m afraid she will feel bad for not having money to buy these things and I don’t want to make her feel bad. But I just don’t know what to buy for it… and I know this sounds silly of me, but the money thing is really sensitive to her.
So here is what I need help with. Flowers:I will have a Royal blue silk flower with a blue and ivory hydrangea mixed in. Other suggestions very very welcomed! Then… well, after that I get stuck. We are having a royal/cobalt blue and silvery winter wonderland look. With branches….. and the look I want for this bouquet is the…”holy crap, that is very blue!” look. Maybe some silver or bling mixed in. I don’t need to know how to put it together, just what to buy….. Thanks!!! The girls will have hydrangeas for their bouqets….
Here is what the ladies bouquets will look like:
(already purchased, just wanted to give this pic for a feel of what other flowers look like)
Things I like for me:
Also, let me add that my Maid/Matron of Honor will have ivory roses mixed in, as well as some of the other arrangements. Thanks so so so much!!!!
