So a growing wedding trend is brooch bouquets, and ever since I saw one I knew I HAD to have one....
Soooo I have been looking around at florists in the city and WOWWZZAS!!!! Crazy expensive...
And well if you have been reading my blogs I have been watching very carefully what I am spend... I don't have the biggest budget, so I have been looking at cost effective ways of saving money... Plus I do want to be "Green" lol
And flowers wow...
Realistically I would like to find a local flower dealer to buy my flowers from and then do the centerpieces and bouquets and everything... well with help from my beautiful bridesmaids and a few friends... My friend Allison has taken some classes and she knows what she is doing (for my birthday last feb. she made me a tiny bouquet - LOL - she's the best) So Allison has already offered to help with the flowers... so thats GREAT... and really I think we can get them all done... - of course I think we will do a little mock up of the bouquets.
BUT... now it's just finding a place to buy flowers locally.
My mom's friend used to grow and sell flowers - originally I was going to buy from her..... But she doesn't grow flowers no longer....
Sooo I am back to square one... Hmmmmm,...
I was thinking of growing to the local farmers market to see if I could work out something with one of the flower vendors there...
Do any of you WBC brides have any ideas of where I could go?
And are any of yours attempting to do your own flowers??
Or if you have any ideas or advise it would be very welcomed!
Thanks Bunches Ladies! And Happy Thursday! YAY the week is almost over!!!
