Vintage

Adrian Whitney (Bride) MINNEAPOLIS, MN
Bright copper kettles? Check. Warm woolen mittens? Check. A girl in a white dress with a blue satin sash? Also, check. The only thing missing at our Sound of Music wedding was Captain Von Trapp himself (which is fine, because I got to marry my own Austrian hottie). When planning our wedding, we knew we wanted to celebrate his Austrian heritage, our combined love of vintage aesthetics, and the Bavarian spirit of "Gemütlichkeit" (good spirits, cheer, companionship). I walked down the aisle to a cello arrangement of Edelweiss, my (now) Father- We relied heavily on tradition, craft, heirlooms, and community. Every detail- from the Salzburg buttons on my sleeves to the candied orange slices ... in the floral arrangements to the Black Forest cake- was full of thought, intention, and love. As someone who's always loved crafting cheap bouquets from Trader Joe's flowers, I was SO excited for the challenge of doing my own wedding arrangements! We really wanted some pops of cheer in our vintage, greenery-based arrangements, so we LOVED the idea of the Goodnight Bahlia included. Also, the candied oranges are a Christmastime tradition that both of our Great Great grandmothers used to do (thin slices, oven dried for like 4 hours at 200 degrees. Normally they're strung up into a banner!). I also purchased 10 bunches of Moon Lagoon Eucalyptus, 100 stems White Carnations, and 10 bunches of Goodnight Bahlias. In addition, I bought some seeded eucalyptus from Sam's Club.....needless to say, we had PLENTY of extras. Show more

Flowers Used for Adrian Whitney's Arrangements

White Carnation Flowers ( 100 stems (Allow 4 business days for delivery) )

Used for: Bridal Bouquet, Centerpieces , Bridesmaid's Bouquets

The carnations were tiny and cute (and I didn't count but it felt like WAY more than 100 stems)

there were one million stems of Moon Lagoon Eucalyptus (which was honestly the prettiest smoky green ever). We ended up using them in everything, including tucked into the curtains (pictured).

Used for: Bridal Bouquet, Bridesmaid's Bouquets

4.5 stars only because these puppies were super fragile. That said, they were gorrrrgeous, and we used them for basically every arrangement we did!

Thistle Blue Flower ( 50 stems )

Used for: Centerpieces , Bridal Bouquet, Bridesmaid's Bouquets , Boutonnieres, Other

The buds were a little smaller than I expected, but it was actually very convenient since I was planning to use them for filler anyway. Definitely expect there to be several buds per stems.

Used for: Boutonnieres, Bridesmaid's Bouquets

Soft, Pretty, Delicate....and fragile as heck. These guys were so, so, pretty and looked beautiful in everything-- but just a heads up to anyone ordering them, they are FLOPPY and not great and staying upright. These guys need support for sure (but again. Still very pretty)

Bahlias were some STURDY flowers, let me tell ya. I used them pretty much everywhere-- including my hair! By the end of the day-- even when the bobby pins had all given up (see first dance photo)-- the flower bloom was still in tact. We actually ended up just pinning it to the lace on my dress by the end (not pictured)! The only thing to note is that occasionally the blooms were so sturdy, they would just pop off the stem if you pulled too much, so.....use caution.

Used for: Bridal Bouquet, Bridesmaid's Bouquets

Sturdy, beautiful, and L A R G E. These bad boys were awesome space fillers, and stayed alive for basically forever. Strongly recommend!
