We had our final meeting with the florist last week - it was fantastic! We changed a few things and added a few new elements which I LOVE...I'm so excited to see my flowers!
My bouquet will be white hydrangea, white and yellow dahlias, yellow garden roses, queen annes lace, green berries, and a few other flowers that I can't remember. It will be tied with a yellow grosgrain ribbon and then over that, our florist is wrapping it with a piece of lace from my mom's wedding dress! This is my basic inspiration:
(taking out the green orchids and changing a few things, but that's the main colors and flowers)
For the bridesmaids, we are doing all green and white bouquets, with a navy ribbon, which I
think will look really good against their bright yellow dresses. Here's my inspiration pic for the girls:
The thing I'm most excited about is that we added a huge fluffy beautiful floral wreath, which will be hung on this gigantic tree which is like the centerpiece of the entire garden where we are getting married. Here's a picture of the tree from our venue:
The tree is right behind where the ceremony is and there will be a bar set up underneath it for cocktail hour. The florist is making a white and yellow wreath (hydrangea and dahlias) with a big navy ribbon and putting it on the tree, like this...
I can't decide if we will add in our monogram to the wreath (I'm leaning towards YES) and it will have ribbon at the bottom, but I love the idea of wreaths! To keep it uniform, she's also going to make a few more smaller wreaths and hanging them around off the deck where the other bar will be during the reception.
We're also adding lemons and limes into the decor, which I think is very fresh and summery
(and goes perfectly with our colors). I'm having several large glass cylinder vases filled with lemons and limes and placed around the venue:
(only no flowers on top or ribbon - very clean and modern looking)
We are also using cut lemons and limes in the vase for our table centerpieces - pretty much exactly like this, only obviously this is the wrong color flowers:
We are at 26 days and counting -- WHAT!! Starting to feel a little bit stressed, but I know everything will get done! I'm sure I will be posting a bunch this week with our last minute details and progress!!
