Sunflowers are the best! They’re my favorite flower. I wanted to use them, but I thought they might be a bit too casual for me.

We’re going to end up using them for our rehearsal dinner, so we’ll have them everywhere. Here are some pictures I’ve used for inspiration:

Great idea!  My photographer shared a picture of a centerpiece using sunflowers…and I plopper it into this post:

Maybe contact my florist (http://petalslane.com/ is her website) to see if she has more inspiration pictures involving sunflowers to share?

Using a few… I’ve asked all the women in my family what their favorite flower was, and plan to give each of them a mini-bouquet of whatever they told me, then incorporate all their favorites into my own bouquet –sunflower for my older sister, yellow rose for my late father, peach or white rose for my mother, green hydrangea for my little sister, in a background of some other roses. I’m a little worried about it looking too busy but I think if I keep to 3 colors or so it will be fine.

Mrs. Leopard- You used a pic from a photographer I was looking at! She ended up being too expensive but we love her anyway!

I love the idea of sunflowers and white daisies.  I had a special request for a sample bouquet last week.

I hope to use some sunflowers, maybe in our centerpieces. Our reception will be in a lodge that lends sort of a rustic feeling, plus I started from a vineyard/Tuscany inspiration looks wise, so I’m hoping they can fit in somehow.

I Love Sunflowers. If you look in the upcoming Summer issue of Martha Stewart Weddings, you will find our client’s beautiful wedding. The Bride did sunflowers and I think they are grand.
