I like the flowers but something about the arrangement seems strange to me.  What are the reed type things in the background?  Those seem to be a bit distracting.

I’m sorry that you feel like you aren’t getting any help.  I think you should talk to your Fiance and find out what he would like to help plan.  Not all guys really want to do the details like flowers and table linens.

I think the reeds that MissAsB is reffering to are actually the peacock feathers as they are kind of side on. Is peacock feathers a big theme in your wedding? I also prefer the arrangement without them as the other flowers look similar height or maybe if you want to use them you could set them lower so they dont poke up too high (just IMO). I like the colours of the flowers though.

I’m from Charlotte also and my wedding is in April! I unfortunately also have had zero help… :(. I’m sort of stressing out at this point!  If you need anything or even just a second eye , send me a message! I am using milkglass centerpieces…not sure if it goes with your theme or how many guests you’re having but the offer is there!

I’d let your Fiance take something else over, like catering or the music.  I don’t know many guys who would be into the flowers as much.


Do you have a Sam’s Club membership?  They have Picasso Calla Lilies available in bulk:

I personally think once the flowers are arranged and in vases its going to look really nice.  And when you get them put together you can always take our the feathers if they seem off to you.  And trust me my husband seemed to take NO interest AT ALL in our wedding.  People say that the first year of marriage is the hardest in a relationship… I say its planning the wedding.  I don’t think my husband and I have ever fought more that when we were planning the wedding.  He didn’t have any interest or voice his opinion and that would upset me and it would cause an arguement.  For 8 months straight!  Ugg.  I even tried to give him jobs like making sure the music was taken care of, and guess who did that…. yup, me. However, this is EXTREMELY common from articles ive read and from what the other bees have told me. So your definatly not alone!  All us bees are here any time with advice and opinions!
