In addition, we’re going light on florals for the tables.  They’re long farm tables in my venue so I’m planning on a runner, and scattering candles, mini pumpkins/gourds, preserved oak and some arrangements in mason jars down the center.  Eclectic and with a lot of levels!

We literally went yesterday to meet with the florist and got an amazing deal. Our venue is going to be covered with flowers and we stayed within our budget which is very nice. 

Here are some of the flowers and things we discussed 

The centerpieces are identical but with taller clear vases. 

My bouquet is sortof like this, but more roses and the little flowers are going to have bling inside of them instead of pears. It is going to be a really large bouquet. 

Bridesmaids will have something along these lines, white with some purple. 

The head table is going to be covered with roses and orchids cascading all the way to the ground with candles everywhere, same with the cake table. 

There’s a lot more to our order but I can’t remember right now

I am working on flowers with my mom this weekend, and will post pics when they’re somewhat done. I say somewhat, cos it might be trial and error – and may just have one of the crafting stores do it instead for convenience.

This is what I am hoping my bouquet will turn out like (wuth diff flowers, of course):

I realize this is different than what I previously posted, but that was before I actually found the flowers I’m going to use.

The Bridesmaid or Best Man flowers will have the same roses, but then will add in hydrangeas to be a little different.

I chose seeded euculyptus, white lisiantus, craspedias, and coral, peach and cream roses.  My centerpieces are going to much like my bouquet, just tossed into vases.

My bouquet inspiration (minus the freesias and not in yellow):

My Maid/Matron of Honor and Bridesmaid or Best Man bouquets (one in peach, the other in cream):

My aisle inspiration:

There are about to be some very large pictures and I’m sorry.  I will have all white flowers with touches of green and lots of texture.  These are the closest pictures I could find to what I have in my head.
