If there is one thing I didn’t particularly care about (pre-planning) for our wedding, it was floral decor. I didn’t know anything about flowers, and from what I could tell, a typical bridal bouquet was just an expertly bound bunch of white roses—lovely, but it didn’t inspire me the same way that, say, the food on our dinner menu did. A few months after discovering Weddingbee and other inspiring blogs, and after devouring several wedding magazines, I realized I had a lot to learn—I hadn’t wanted to spend thousands on something that didn’t take my breath away. For better or for worse, I found a world of florals that fit my vision to a tee, and now I can’t get enough of these beautiful blossoms!
What changed my mind? Creative use of texture, and bouquets that feel hand picked from an overgrown garden (full of coveted varieties, of course):

My particular floral obsessions include Crespedia and Button Mums:
Chamomile and herbs:
When I shared my inspiration for my florists, they were completely on-board with my vision. They also informed me that I like large bouquets based on photos I provided, which made me laugh and throw my hands up in surrender. Not only am I newly obsessed with flowers, I want to carry a LOT of them. I can’t wait to see what they come up with!
