well… this isn’t flowers, but i chose my venue because of it’s greenery. it’s a courtyard surrounded by beautiful plants. at least it was this time last year. but the weather has been so cold and awful that this year, even though it’s the same month that we picked the venue, it’s no longer so green. so no, i don’t trust nature.

Hmmm… it depends on how reliable they have been throughout the years.  In years past, have you noticed an abundance of them along the road?  I’d be really hesitant to rely on this.  You don’t want to be disappointed if someone else grabs them, could you imagine?  Now that I think about it, I think I’d probably try to grow them.  You have plenty of time.  You could just grow them in the same location since you know they will survive there.  But always have a back up plan.

If you do decide to rely on nature (which I think is a really great idea, btw!) PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE make sure you pick the orange pollen covered stamens out!  If you get any of it on your clothes, it won’t come out.  I would also recommend to pick the flowers the day before because when you pluck the pollen out, it will stain your fingers for a few hours!

Also, if they do grow in the wild there, do you have any farmers markets, florists, or wholesalers in your area that would provide them, just in case they aren’t ready to be picked in the wild by your wedding date?
