flowers have me befuddled
I know for certain that we cannot afford a florist to do all the work. Despite the fact that this would be easiest option...and potentially worth the money. Especially since our wedding weekend time could be spent visiting with friends and family, instead of scrambling about doing it ourselves. Except, it's not in our budget. So...
I've toyed around with the idea of ordering flowers in bulk online. Except this makes me a lil nervous. I've read a couple awful reviews from bridal bloggers who have done this, and the flowers that showed up at their door were all wrong and wilty. Yikes. Also, where on Earth would we store the flowers until our ceremony? Not at the wedding site. And as this will be a destination wedding, it gets a lil tricky to find refrigerators. Right?
I've explored the charming Flagstaff farmer's market for blooms. And they are terribly adorable. But the mainstay are sunflowers...and whilst I do enjoy a big happy sunflower, it's not what I want to carry down the aisle.
I need to figure this out pronto. Hummm...any suggestions? What did you do?
