- Wedding: November 2007
The last big wedding decision I need to make is flowers. Of course, our budget has pretty much been blown and I want to keep the cost down. I would like to have a very good idea about what I want before meeting with the florist. I’ve been thinking about a simple bouquet of gardenias. So I’d like to know if any of you have considered them and what knowledge you have as well as what your thoughts are on this based on the style of my wedding. Here are the details:
My dress is an ivory chantilly lace sheath (somewhat mermaidish, but not extremely so). It’s a v-neck and v-back adorned with crystals along the neck, back, and empire waste. It has a 30’s vibe I think.
My colors are dark plum, gold, with spice, and apricot accents. I would like maybe a gold ribbon around the stems. If I mixed in any other flowers they would be pale apricot I think. Probably apricot flowers for the bm’s who are wearing plum dresses. Also, if you have any good alternative flower suggestions for my bouquet, the bm’s, or boutinnieres feel free to let me know! Thanks!
