- Wedding: June 2013
Just when I thought I had the flowers all sorted out….family drama happens and i feel like I’m back at square one!!
I had met a while ago with my florist and decided on the following for my over all vintage/romantic wedding. (The grils are in a dusty rose/purple dress).
My centre pieces are in a square 5×5 vase with white hydragenas, 2 green hydragenas, amnesia roses and pale pink esperance roses.
I originally decided for my bouquet as purple amnesia, freesia and ivory and pale pink penoies.
The bridesmaids would have a smaller version of my bouquet.
I wanted the groom to have an amnesia boutinerier and the groomsmen to have ivory roses.
The fathers and grandfather would have an ivory rose.
The mothers would have a wrist corsage with ivory rose.
Where the drama comes in is that my fiance’s family decided to tell me now that it’s a tradition that we get flowers for all the siblings and aunts and uncles in the family. So that now adds 3 siblings (and their spouses), and 7 aunts/uncles on his side. And we’d have to include my family which is 6 aunts/uncles.
I orignally opposed this because I think it’s riduclous to include flowers for everyone who isn’t even in the wedding party and it’s really not in the budget. but I lost that battle.
Since the wedding party would have roses, what do these extra people get that won’t break my budget? Do I change the wedding party and family choices so that they stand out more than the extra people that now “need” flowers.
So now I don’t know what to do about the boutineers and flowers and even the bouquet. What do I get the extra people? Is my bouquet to plain for the look i want? I’m getting discouraged now about all my choices of flowers and it’s making me upset and stressed.
I hate wedding politics.
