Bouts for ushers, grandparents can get flowers if you like, flower girl, And yes, there is usually some kind of decor at the church, whether it be at the end of each pew, or at the front by you guys =)

Don’t forget something to put your bouquets in at the reception.  Our sweetheart table is going to have an empty vase for mine.  (dunno yet for the bridesmaids)

I’m so over the checklist on the Knot =P it’s so incredibly overwhelming!

with that said, if flowers are very important to you, then you might want to talk to some florists soon just so you can book the one that you want for your date. major vendors do book up quickly – although florists are not as difficult to book since they can do multiple events in one day. but if you are particular about your florist, you might want to get on it.  our wedding is in August, and I’m hoping to call up some florists this week – but I’m not going to stress out about it either if I don’t get around to it ’til March =P

We’ll just be getting bouquets for me and the BMs, bouts for the groom and the GMs, bouts/corsages for parents/grandpa, and centerpieces for the reception. I won’t be getting flowers for the ceremony ’cause I don’t really feel like our ceremony site needs it. All the girls will already be looking pretty up there with their bouquets 😉

I use the knot’s checklist as a guide considering some of the stuff they have on there we are not doing.  I just check them off to get it out of the way.  For flowers that really depends if you are using real or fake.  We are using fake and I just finished placing my order for the bridal party. The only real flowers plan on doing is the rememberance flowers.
