Amazing Flowers For My May Wedding!
Cameron Lange (Bride) Chesterfield, MO
Everyone thought I was crazy for doing my own flowers. But, they turned out gorgeous. I made a spreadsheet with all the things we needed so I didn't short myself. We had 20+ centerpieces plus the head table, a dozen cake flowers, 6 bridesmaids bouquets, 3 corsages, 5 mini bouquets for flower girls, 10 boutonnieres, 8 pew markers, church flowers, flowers above the mantle, etc. Lots. The flowers were packaged way better than I expected and I just followed the care directions. We put everything together the day before and were delivering them to the church and reception venue at 10:00 at night. That being said, they were gorgeous. My favorite flower by far was the cabbage garden rose antique
pink. They were SO pretty with all the petals and their color was just stunning. I used mainly those and peonies in my bouquet. I did get some wax flower and more dusty miller from my local flower shop because I love wax flower. We ended up running out of filler flower and had to go to my parents' backyard and get some. No big deal. :) It was fun for the bridal party to help the day before. We drank champagne, listened to music, and arranged flowers. It was really a great time...and we were proud of the flowers.
