wedding wednesday - flowers.

happy wedding wednesday! as i mentioned on monday- we met with our florist over the weekend and she was just fantastic. our florist is a family friend and she had a LOT of great ideas for our big day but still listened to everything i wanted. 


when h and i got engaged last march (wowzah- time flies doesn't it?!) i had a clear vision of what i wanted for our big day: lots of gold, pinks and blushes and the dreamy pale flowers to match (with rustic succulents thrown in). 
blushes - succulents - pinks

fast forward 10 months later and now my mind is set on something completely different. i have nixed my muted palate for BRIGHT bouquets and flowers. here are a few of my favorites: 
ranunculus - bright bouquet - little buds

the bright flowers will serve as the main pop of color in our reception space so i want something bold and graphic (something a little more fun...like us!) i am confident our florist is going to help make our big day bright & beautiful- i can't wait!!

xo,

  3. fun!


    I went for the exact same plan as you originally had- pinks, blushes and golds. I totally loved it. But those pops of color sure are pretty!

    (if you want to see my bouquet- you might be able to see it on my facebook profile picture, though I forget what kind of settings I have now: https://www.facebook.com/#!/profile.php?id=21401101)
