I have to say, my flowers turned out to be one of my favorite details of the wedding. You can show your florist all the magazine pictures and Pinterest boards you want, but let's face it -- you won't know what your bouquet is going to really look like until your wedding day. My florist absolutely nailed it! My bouquet was exactly what I wanted.
Flowers by: Elana's Broad Street Florist in Middletown, DE. The cameo brooch was "Something Borrowed" from the mother of the groom. The locket belonged to my great-grandmother -- Something Old. I found gorgeous vintage ribbon on Etsy to wrap around my bouquet. They were removed during the ceremony to be used as handfasting cords.
I had asked my florist to use this Martha Stewart Weddings magazine cover as inspiration. She created the same look using flowers that were in season [read: cheaper].
Pretty close, huh?
