    Money and other… not only can we not afford flowers, but we also didn’t feel flowers would fit our beach wedding… so shell bouquets it is. =)

    1st reason was money but then aside from that was the issue with live flowers wilting/ dying before the day is over, not getting to see the  bouquet until right before the wedding and not getting to DIY it myself. I’m also very allergic to alot of flowers.

    A few reason.

    We are getting married in his hometown and will be staying with his parents.  I don’t want to invade their fridge with flowers.

    We really don’t have the money to spend on a florist. 

    We are going with a fall theme and like the idea of using branches, crandberries, pumpkins for decorations.

    @SweetRose2011: For me it’s just waste. Flowers are beautiful, but my mind can’t get past the fact that they will be dead in a few days. So we will probably do some type of other arrangement and the girls and I will be carry lace parasols.

    I’m making paper flowers for my wedding! The main reason I chose to go with paper flowers was money, but I also love doing crafty stuff and I feel like these flowers are more special. Also, paper flowers don’t require water and never wilt!
