So, this past Saturday I went to our florist (Enchanted Florist in Old Town Alexandria) to pick out my bouquet and put down our deposit.
This is the mockup of my bouquet. And yes, that’s an artichoke. It is not going to be dead center in the bouquet. Not only that, they said they would get a fresh vivid green artichoke for my bouquet, and the roses on the left will be greener. This was just a quick mockup with what they had on hand.
I’m so excited. While I went for a classic cream and green palette, but I wanted something striking and different with succulents. 🙂
Now show me yours! Bouquets, bouquet mockups, bouquet inspirations… 🙂

My inspiration photos. I loved the first one, but most of the flowers aren’t in season locally and I’m on a budget. The second I found at the florist and modified to get my final bouquet, in orange with some greenery.

We just did a flower trial run this weekend. Our colors are turquoise and magenta/pink. All the attire is in turquoise, so we used pinks and whites for the flowers. Everything was purchased from San Francisco FlowerMart and I am beyond pleased with how everything came out – and even more so after we calculated how much it would cost to do all the bouquets, centerpieces, etc.
Here is the trial run for my bridal bouquet…
peonies, ranunculus, spray roses, and wax flower.. the stems will be wrapped with turquoise ribbon.
Future Mother-In-Law is amazing at this flower arrangement business!
