Happy Wednesday! Today I am excited to show you some more wedding pics. My Flowers! So I did my flowers myself with my trusty bridesmaids and mom. They turned out amazing and were one of my favorite parts of my wedding. I loved making the bouquets and I loved the way they turned out. I decided to do my own flowers because I wanted as many as possible. I wanted vases that were brimming with roses and peonies. I had 65 dozen flowers that showed up the Tuesday before my wedding day which was a Friday. I ordered them from Wholeblossoms.com and they were perfect!
First things first we got boxes and boxes of flowers and got them into buckets with floral food immediately.
I was in heaven with every inch of my condo filled with buckets of flowers!
Thursday morning I couldn’t sleep and we started the flowers at 5AM. We were done by 10AM – not too bad!
For the big fish bowl we used floral foam since the vase had such a big “mouth.” Floral foam works great to keep flowers in place and to keep them lasting longer!
For the vases with smaller openings we just did them normal – no foam.
Mom and I!
The hand bouquets were done very carefully. We found that using a tall vase was the best way to go. We did a normal bouquet in a vase then when it looked just right just lifted up all the flowers, wrapped with wire, floral tape, and then ribbon!
They were all so great I couldn’t decide which was my favorite.
It was such a great way to build excitement for the wedding. And I was so pleased with the way they turned out! Can’t wait to show you pictures of the hall when I get my photographers photos back!
