So a growing wedding trend is brooch bouquets, and ever since I saw one I knew I HAD to have one....
Having hunter green as my color makes flowers a bit difficult, but I came up with a solution! Calla Lilies! They are mostly green, and they are inexpensive in bulk, easy to tie together, and great looking! I'm planning to use shorter vases so I can also put a ring of fluffy roses around the top of the vase. I'll also put votive candles around the bottom and some rose petals. I found a picture that is really close to what I see in my mind, only my centerpieces will be less busy, not have red roses, and incorporate crystals.
I'll do about 15 callas in each vase and about a dozen roses. I don't want my centerpiece to fill the table like the one in the picture, but this is close to what I have in mind in terms of the vase and the roses. The hall requires all candles to be in glass containers, so I need votive cups. I can't use bare candles, although I like the look.
I also want to incorporate floating candle arrangements on some tables and hang flower balls from the ceiling. I don't want every table to be an exact carbon copy of each other. I want some variety and interest.
Now that I have an overall vision of where I'm going with this wedding, it's getting more fun to plan:)
