Okay hive, this is really it. Are you ready? I promise, no more flower posts from me (unless they’re recaps). Because I’ve finally decided on the flowers, and there is simply no turning back. Yay for making decisions!
Since changing our color scheme, and flowers, and the flowers again, our florists (rightfully so) wanted to re-meet with us. I headed back over to their house armed with my many pages of print outs. I’m serious, I had over 10 sheets with more than a photo per page. They must think I’m crazy.
I had gotten hooked on Michelle Rago’s Elegant Bride cover bouquet waaaaay back in the day, and it still remains the most beautiful bouquet I’ve ever laid eyes on. However, as we all know, if you’re not getting married in the spring, you may have to stay away from a lot of your favorite flowers. Peace out sweet peas and grape hyacinth!
Instead, my bouquet will be composed of the following:
- Lavender Hydrangea
- Lavender Lisianthus
- Lavender Roses
- Lavender Freesia
For the D’orsay ladies? They’ll be rocking big fluffs of baby’s breath (big bee shout outs to Strawberry, Joey, and especially the newly minted Mrs. Powder Puff for putting the idea into my head in the first place).
Mr. D? He’ll sport brunia with a bit of lavender, while his G’men wear poofs of baby’s breath with a bit of lavender, as well. Brunia are the little gray balls in the photo, below.
As for the centerpieces? You’ll just have to wait and see how they evolved, or rather”¦ devolved.
Is there a part of wedding planning that has consistently had you waffling?
