Should I carry flowers? How big or small should the bouquet be? What type of flowers should I carry? Real or fake?
Its my wedding and I can do what I want , right? Well flowers seam a bit silly for my small wedding. I love flowers. Calla lilies, hydrangeas and orchids are my favorite. Since this is a budget DIY wedding I plan to buy some silk flowers and make a bouquet… I did it for my first wedding, and the bouquet came out wonderful, I wish I had a photo to share. ( I will look for one) .
There is this one shop on Etsy that I love, Wedideas. she is evil.. but in a good way. Most of her bouquets are out of my price range but they are gorgeous!! I wish I could afford a $105 bouquet . I really do. Some are in the $30 to $70 range, still out of my reach. BUT she sells single stems of one of my favorite flowers…. calla lily!!. I love the Aruba color lilies .
And at $3 each, I think I can make something that I’ll love. Add some ribbon and the bouquet charms that will have my mother’s and grandmothers pictures in frames it shall be perfect.
Like I’ve said… Small wedding , no bridal party,and no reception… I am saving so much on flowers !
With only a few months to go, I need to make this bouquet ASAP! Keep an eye out for that post.
Until next time, xo
