noooo my flowers aren't like this...but I think this bouquet has some serious pizazz.
After hours and hours of different flower scenarios floating through my head making me half batty...I finally settled down...took a few deep breaths...and ordered our blooms. Yippeeee!!
Having a destination wedding is a tad tricky for things like flowers. With the wild and weird weather that hits Arizona, I can't quite depend on the Flagstaff farmer's market in late May to have flowers for our shin dig. Plus, finding an affordable florist in an area I don't live in was really really tricky. For me, it was impossible. If I had loads of time to make calls, email back and forth, make a special trips up the mountain for meetings...it might have been a different story.
So the day before the wedding, we'll be the "flower girls"...prepping, arranging, and popping them in glass jars.
I picked garden roses and ranunculus. Then added some wild-esque types like hypericium berries, thistle, asters, and bupleurium.
I feel so good about this. My heart is calm. The calm before the storm perhaps?
*note: we went with 50flowers because I have friends in real life and in blog life that were very happy with them :-)
