I married my best friend on September 2, 2012, and I still love weddings and helping new brides with planning!

Flower/Bouquet/CP Inspiration

We booked a florist last week!

I am excited! I really didn't want to deal with a florist, and the cost of a florist, but my parents offered to pay for one. Since the beginning I've wanted to use wine bottles. Just recently I decided I want them all white. We will have purple table cloths so, it will look nice!

All different size bottles like this and all white with white flowers and lots of greenery!


As for bouquets, I fully trust my florist on this one. I have yet to find that one purple bouquet that I love, but I love her work. I love the rich texture of these bouquets. No roses though!


And I love the dark purple carnations! My BM's will have all white, and I will have purple


*UPDATE* FMIL and I spray painted 36 bottles a couple weeks ago. They look great! We had some mishaps with the spray paint bubbling, but oh well!

~Can't wait to see it all come together~

EDIT**Future brides: If you're not really wanting a florist, a lot of brides have opted to go through sam's club or another place like that to order bulk real flowers and did the arrangements themselves if you want something simple. I didn't really think about that before hiring a florist. Just a thought. :)

Really nice! I was thinking something like this : D

Wow I love your centerpiece mock up. And also your bouquet inspirations - really nice!

Love those inspirations the bouquets are so full and pretty!

Def tell your florist what kind of colors you like, how you envision your bouquet (like I love the full bouquets like you listed rather than all different flowers), then tell her your budget.  Use PW too, I have found sooo many flower inspirations on here.
