- Wedding: June 2012
We’re having a very traditional, very classic June wedding inside our church. Our colors are blush pink, gold, and navy, and I’ve got the big lacy white dress, the guys are wearing tuxes, all that jazz. We’re going very traditional with everything, but I have one problem… I am really not in love with those satin-covered flower girl basket things. No harm meant towards those of you who are using/have used them, but they’re just not my style… at all. In my quest for a pretty, classic flower girl basket, I keep finding rustic-looking baskets with moss and vines (so pretty, but don’t fit our vision) and ideas for having the girls carry pomander balls covered in flowers (which I LOVE but my man is sticking to his flower-girls-are-supposed-to-throw-flowers mantra). I’ve also been looking for just a plain cute little basket that I could spray paint and decorate in some way, but I can’t seem to find one that’s the right size. So my question to you lovely ladies is: can someone PLEASE point me in the direction of somewhere I can find a classic, sweet, pretty, romantic (…etc.) flower girl basket?? Please feel free to post pictures of yours as well! I’m also a crafting fiend, and most of our wedding is going to be DIY anyway, so I’m open to crafting suggestions too! THANK YOU!
