On my list of things to do, I have “meet with florists.” I’m not really wanting to do this now or ever. 🙂 See, I’m a very weak willed person, and I find it hard to stand my ground when it comes to sales people. I’ve been known to buy something in a store because I feel bad for just looking. Seriously.
So, while Mr. Kiwi definitely has to come with me to these meetings, I’m a little worried I may end up agreeing to centerpieces and altar arrangements when I don’t want (or need) them. To make myself stand a little stronger and present myself as an unmoveable bride-to-be, I’ve collected pictures of my “ideas.” And none of these pictures are centerpieces or altar arrangements. 🙂 Without further ado, I think this is what I like (I apologize if any of these images are yours, in my early engagement haste, I forgot to record the people I got them from!)
I adore these flowers. This is about the color scheme I’m thinking for the bouquets.
I love the idea of roses and calla lilies – I’m thinking that mine can be a mix, and the MOH can have just calla lilies.
This bouquet is almost exactly what I want, but with the callas added.
As for the men in our party, I’m thinking along these lines. Still trying to add a little rustic charm.
Love the berries!
This one is cute, but may be a little too rustic for me.
I think this is a good mixture of classic and rustic.
For our flower girl, I’m thinking a wreath made of slightly reddish orange roses, and then a paper basket (like this one from Martha)
Filled with dried rose buds and petals like this:

So, it shouldn’t be too hard to get what I want, right?
