- Wedding: August 2012
OK, soooo I am seriously re-thinking my flowers for the wedding. Originally I was doing mason jars on sheppard’s hooks down the aisles with purple wildflowers, and then all the girls (including me) would have bouquets of white hydrangeas with champagne roses. My bouquet would also have “diamond” pins in it.
We’re doing a cocktail reception that starts outside and then moves into the house (see pic below), and our centrepieces outside are the mason jars with candles of all different heights…inside we’re doing purple uplighting in the main room (it’s all white), and then using candles in different heights/vases. I’m also using candles inside the fireplace in the main room.
The whole house is fully furnished (including a full library with first edition books), so we’re really not using a ton of flowers or decor, because we just plain don’t need it.
But here’s the thing: I FREAKIN LOVE SUNFLOWERS. And the more i’m thinking about it, the more I really want to incorporate them! My girls are in lapis from david’s bridal, and the guys are in grey with lapis ties.
Would it just be way too random to have bouquets with sunflowers for the girls and then maybe add some into the mason jars along the aisles? I don’t have yellow anywhere else….
Here is the venue:
