Thanks! I think any type of flower can appear mature versus juvenile with good floral design.

I was just looking back in the comments to check out all of the flower porn (I looooove flowers) and noticed you have hay fever! My Maid/Matron of Honor has terrible allergies too, and she planned my bridal shower. 

Not surprised that this is what the arrangements she came up with looked like (though the corsage caught me off-guard… would have chosen to wear a different top if I had known we were pinning heavy things to it… it was riding down all day!). These have roses, carnations, calla lillies, double formal mums (don’t use regular mums, they have to be the double formal variety!) and… I forget what the long flowers are called, but they are also low pollen and good for allergies.

My wedding was in summer, which partially influenced her choice of flowers. Since yours is in Spring, I highly suggest looking into tulips… Always look forward to tulip season. Tulips are so pretty, great if you like a simple and clean aesthetic like mine, fairly economical, and basically scent-free. If I had married in the Spring (gerberas are Summer flowers) I’d have gone with tulips, for sure. 

Here is 1000+ Pinterest ideas for a tulip wedding, if that appeals:

No pro pics yet.

I gathered these from family members, our venue, planner, event designer, cake designer etc…

I wanted our guests to walk into an “enchanted forest” so I told our event designer I wanted alot of greenery…like 60% greenery, 40% floral and we also rented several Benjamin Ficus trees to scatter around the reception space.  We also had an escort card tree that I’m hoping our photogs got shots of. 

As for flowers, I have no idea what kinds were used LOL…I know it was mostly roses.  I didn’t have a preference.  Just gave our event designer the color scheme and let her work her magic..

Wish there was a better shot of our tall centerpieces but these are the best I have for now..

Half of one of the low centerpieces haha

DH’s bout.

These were my flowers 🙂 my Maid/Matron of Honor had a small bouquet of baby’s breath and then we had the blue bulbs and baby’s breath on small vases on the tables 🙂 our colours were navy, white and blush.

dojx :  How did you do the rose in the jar? It looks very “The Little Prince” and would be perfect for my centerpieces.
