So a growing wedding trend is brooch bouquets, and ever since I saw one I knew I HAD to have one....
I have been speaking back and forth with Lee, my florist for a couple of months now and this is finally the bouquet that I have decided on! I am thrilled about it but not sure if I want the roses shaded between white and ivory, if I want to leave them that beautiful pink color, or if I would like white with pink tips. I am sort of leaning toward keeping them pink---though nothing else at the wedding will be pink.
The original colors that we had chose for our wedding were Silver and Navy blue, though I don't think we have bought anything with those. I am planning on keeping napkins, chair sashes, and the candy buffet in those colors along with shoes and possibly the men's attire....but so far everything has been black and white (which I honestly adore!) I am a little bit skeptical about the men's suites being paired with something navy. We have all agreed that it will be a black suite and/or tux that they will be renting, but if they pair it with Navy, do you think it may look like their vest or dress shirt was a shade of black that went wrong? I'm not quite sure if they will match...
I haven't quite picked out the boutonnieres and corsages yet. My bridesmaid flowers are going to be white roses. I priced them out at the florist and they are actually a ridiculous amount. At the moment my plan is to order them via telephone two weeks before the wedding and have them come into Safeway/Overwaitea/Askews which ever store I choose a couple of days before the wedding, I'll pick them up from the grocery store, do some trimming and ribbon wrapping and I will have got my 12 dozen white roses for my bridesmaids at $20 a bouquet. I will just have to be very attentive to keep them alive and looking well!
If you have any tips or ideas for me, let me know!
