Flower Inspiration

Just a few pretty photos today of stuff I'm showing my florist this weekend...

Love the colors in this bouquet. Not a huge fan of roses, so I would want to switch those out for nice big fluffy dahlias. I heart green orchids and cream hydrangea!!

Garden Roses...my perfect alternative to having roses and they look like peonies!!

Sigh. I love ranunculus. Not sure if we can get it in September, but I'm totally obsessed!

LOVE this for the bridesmaids bouquets! With their yellow dresses, I want to go with green and white flowers tied with a navy ribbon.

Wheatgrass grown in large silver galvantized tins for our place cards...I love that the place cards are on sticks!
For cocktail hour, we're putting small mint julep cups filled with fluffy green hydrangea on all the cocktail tables.
Does anyone ever feel like they can't find the exact flower pictures they have in their head??? I think I have a lot more research to do!

Well, it's not that cold here - and I did wear the tights and boots anyway! I look a little strange amonst the Hawaiian shirt clad tourists, but I'm warm & comfy today, so that's good.
Love the flowers and the colors for your wedding!!! Just gorgeous!!!

I met with my florist last week and got the contract today. We're getting married in October and having burgandy ranunculus. It most be possible.
