More flowers

Happy Friday friends! I am trying to work on the whole flower thing. I don't really know anything about flowers. I could tell you what colors I like and what I think looks pretty but pretty much the only flowers I can identify are tulips, roses, carnations, and sunflowers. So, choosing flowers does not come easy to me.

For my bridesmaids, I want them to carry very small bouquets of some type of white flower. At my sister's wedding, my Mom carried a small nosegay of white roses and I have always thought it was lovely. We're not really corsage people, so for the mothers, I would like for them to carry what my mom carried at my sister's wedding.

For the bridesmaids, I like this bouquet without the hints of blue. I also want the bouquet to be much smaller.

As far as my bouquet, I love the bouquet below. I think I might ask the florist to re-create it. The colors would tie in perfectly with everything else. I haven't decided though. For my bouquet I really want A LOT of color. I also want a larger bouquet.

In the pictures below, I like some of the flowers in each bouquet. However, I don't really particulary care for the bouquets themselves, does that make sense? I need the pictures to show my florist what flowers I like.

Wow, those are so pretty. I like the idea of white with a little blue. The peonies in the fifth picture from the bottom are gorgeous.

I love the bouquet that you want the florist to copy! It is gorgeous! I love peonies too and used a lot of them in my wedding.

Enjoy your weekend!

I am a lot like you, in that I know what I do and don't like, I just can't seem to capture it in words. Show me a picture and I can tell you if I like what I see or not, but I could never dream up a perfect bouquet for myself. I wouldn't even know where to begin. I rely completely on the photo inspiration I find all over the Internet. Thanks for giving me some good ideas.

Love the second to last bouquet. Simple and very elegant.
