I'm currently considering the possibility of growing and arranging the flowers for the wedding. There's only the centerpieces, my bouquet, three bridesmaids bouquets, one flower girl, five corsages, and three boutonneires. I think it's doable, but a few have stopped just short of laughing in my face.
The reason I've even begun to consider this is the price of florists is obscene. Quotes for my bouquet start around $110, which is simply ridiculous. I do have a meeting with Kroger Floral Dept. this week (who knew?!?) and we'll see how that goes. At the very least, they are able to order in bulk flowers for me if I still stick with arranging my own.
I still need to decide what flowers/colors I want in the bouquet, but I love blue thistle, seeded eucalyptus, and gerbera daisies.
Here are some bouquets that I like:
