Wedding Wednesday: Flowers

Whew!

I’m smack dab in the middle of the first week of standardized testing (yay . . . not) so the past few weeks at school have been crazy with reviews/test preparation. Just need to push through SIXTEEN more days at school and I’ll be on summer vacation!

Now, on to my weekly wedding post!

Wedding Wednesday: The Flowers

I should start by saying I know absolutely nothing about flowers. I went into my first meeting with my florist equipped with some pictures from Pinterest and not much else. I couldn’t pinpoint a “vision” and I was thrilled when the florist looked at my pictures, listened to what I liked about each floral arrangement, and put together fabulous ideas for me!

Since I still know very little about flowers, I’ll just share some pictures and attempt to remember what each one was. 🙂

Let’s start with my bouquet! (Once again, all photos are courtesy of the fabulous Rothwell Photography)

My bridesmaids had bouquets made up of different colors of hydrangeas. They had blue, yellow, green, and white — they all looked perfect!

We did this on the stumps lining our aisles and in our centerpieces. I think it really tied everything together!

And that’s it! We kept the flowers pretty simple but less is more, right?

Happy Wednesday!
