One of the parts of my wedding I am most excited about is my flowers – I love them and was an avid gardener before I moved to the desert. My requirements for my bouquet is that it have an antique feel with texture and fragrance and then when I changed my date to April that it have my favorite flower, Lily of the Valley
So here is what my florist chose and I cannot wait to see how it turns out
Hand Tied Styling with Halloween, Sahara and Vendela roses, Ivory Garden/English roses, off white freesia, stephanotis clusters, antique hydrangea, dusty miller, lily of the valley with tulle folds and streamers
Here is the picture of the flowers and I cannot wait to see my bouquet
So who else is excited about their bouquet and what did you pick? Why did you pick what you did?

I’m doing all calla lilies. I just think they are really pretty and easy to DIY.

I can’t post pics, although I have a good idea in my brain of the flowers.
We’re going to a local farm the day before the wedding and buying fresh flowers for the centerpieces and bouquets. My guess is that there will be a lot of yellow, since its a September wedding. They’ll go in mason jars with sea glass (real, collected from the beach) at the bottom. The bouquets will just be tied with a nice blue ribbon.

I had lisianthus, hydrangea, lilies, narcissus, and star of bethlehem. I basically went into my meeting with the florist and said “I want a mostly white bouquet and I hate roses…what can I do?” I loved it!

I went with all white peonies. I think they are beautiful and I was on a budget so couldn’t have an intricate bouquet like I originally wanted.

I cant post pictures at work, but I will tell you about my bouquet. Flowers I found were the hardest part. I didn’t know what I wanted and just didnt see any pictures that suited my taste. Until I finally found the bouquet….I was thinking about sunflowers but ended up going with…
white hydrangeas, yellow mini calli lillies, yellow orchids, and a big white gardenia. I’m so completely excited about my bouquet, it is going to look stunning. If you google yellow and gray bouquets it will pop up.

Roses! I think they are very romantic and elegant looking.

My inspiration was roses and gebera daisys… but when I saw how my actual bouquet turned out with the daises, I hated it… and had it redone with roses instead of the geberas.

white ranunculus, yellow craspedia, silver brunia (hopefully), and dusty miller – I feel like I’m leaving something off, but I guess not. I’m hoping there’s a lot of ranunculus. I have a hard time picturing it completely together in my head, but I know my florist knows what she’s doing, so I’m not worried! Can’t wait to see it next month! Eek!

I chose to DIY my flowers so I stuck with classic roses in red.
