Flower Inspiration

I am super excited to start thinking more seriously about my wedding day flowers now that I’ve officially booked my florist! I picked my flower color scheme the same day I picked my bridesmaid dress color.  It was a quick decision and I haven’t had a second thought since! Like my taste in many other things in my life, my color scheme for my flowers is simple.  My wedding flowers will consist of whites, creams, and ivories, feature lots of greenery (especially silver dollar eucalyptus!), and have a natural, unstructured look to them.  The greenery is just as important to me as the flowers are! The backdrop of the ceremony is so pretty and organic that I think lots and lots of greenery is going to translate so nicely into our wedding decor.

I LOVE the look of these boutonnieres! I think the green and white will look so good against the guys’ suits! (Images are all from Pinterest!)

It’s a good thing I am getting married in the spring because that is when all my favorite flowers are in season! Must-have flowers include:

  • PEONIES<3
  • Spray roses
  • Ranunculus
  • Calla Lilies
  • Magnolias
  • Dogwood (gotta have that NC charm in there!)

Thank you Southern Weddings Joyful Planner for this cheat sheet on flowers!

I have to take a moment to brag on my florist! I swear he is psychic! Before we had even talked to him, he put together and brought us a bouquet of flowers that he thought would suit my vision just having heard about us through our venue! It’s exactly what I had in mind! I can’t wait to see what he does with the rest of our flowers on our wedding day!

Fun Fact: Stephen with Always & Forever florist (who put this bouquet together!) was the 2015 NCSFA Florist of the Year!

Also, I’m looking for suggestions on how to decorate the stairs at our venue! The stairs serve as the first half of my ‘aisle’ so they are really going to be a focal point of our ceremony!

Here’s a picture of the stairs undecorated:

I think they are a really unique aspect of my venue but also have no idea what to do with them! Any and all suggestions are appreciated! 🙂

We haven’t made any official purchases or commitments in terms of flowers yet, but they get super expensive so we are definitely going to have to get creative with how we go about executing our vision. I’ll be sure to post how we get it all done a little later!

Thanks so much for stopping by and seriously, feel free to share with me any suggestions about the stairs!
