So a growing wedding trend is brooch bouquets, and ever since I saw one I knew I HAD to have one....
Tonight I was going over the vendor bills and final costs of things and I took one look at the cost of the flowers/centerpieces and all of a sudden it hit me like a ton of bricks! I immediately thought to myself, "Are you SERIOUS? Im really going to pay THAT much for JUST the centerpieces?!"
WHAT THE HELL WAS I THINKING?! It's not even about being able to afford them or not because I can, I just couldn't fathom the thought of paying that much for something that isn't even going to last very long!!
I seriously think I was just so caught up in the moment and super excited that I was going to have these beautiful flowers and centerpieces.
After I had my lilttle freak out, I did a alittle research and realized that this may be something that I can possibly do myself. I am not....*let me repeat* I AM NOT a crafty person....AT ALL so the very thought of having to compose 15-17 centerpieces absolutely scares the HELL out of me!!
Every bride wants everything to be perfect on their wedding day and I guess Im just afraid that they may not turn out exactly how I want them to.
I found really great, detailed instructions on how to submerge flowers succesfully underwater for my centerpiece and I think Im going to give it a try!!!
Sooo...this weekend Im going to go get a vase/cylinder, flowers and all other necessary tools and attempt to assemble a centerpiece!!!
The centerpiece I was going to have my florist do is to have one large white Calla lilly and two shorter fuchsia calla lillies submerged upright in a vase with crystals at the bottom and LED lights and candles. The picture is similar to what it would look like.
Wish me luck...Im definately going to need it! hahaha.
Are any of you ladies planning on doing this or something similar as your centerpiece??
