OUR Bride & Bridesmaid Bouquets

For something that lives so shortly it's amazing how happy flowers can make us.  We love growing them in gardens, using them to brighten up the house, and receiving them on special occasions.  But the big showcase of flowers is of course on your wedding day.

Bride's take careful consideration in what flowers we want to use on our wedding day, because the flowers we choose of course are a representation of us. Are you bold? Traditional? Love color? Appreciate simplicity? What are the wedding colors? Do you have a favorite flower? And so on.  And of course for a lot of us flowers are what can eat into the wedding budget, which makes the choice even more important. Since Lisa and I were both married recently we can atest to the time it spent to choose the right flowers that would pop, but not overpower us ladies. It's harder than you may think. 

Lisa and I who are so very similar (notice choice of our hairstyles, aren't they cute?) are also unique, which is clearly seen in our wedding flowers.  We chose our bouquets to tie in our wedding colors (Lisa's fave of purple and for mine the white popped on the turquoise dresses). Both of us brought our favorite flowers into the bouquets. Mine are my 3 traditional favorites and Lisa's is a variety, and just like her is pulled together beautifully.

We're letting you have a peek at the bouquets we made for our special days. Blessed to have shared them together, we're thrilled to share them with you!
