I love flowers. They are one of my passions in life. So for our wedding in summer next year, I'd like our wedding flowers to have a wildflower, "just picked from the garden" feel. I"m not looking for traditional David Austin rose bouquets (although nothing wrong with that either!). I want flowers with complementing colours, preferably something colourful and bright.
I have three bridesmaids and my aim is for them to all have different bouquets so as to differentiate their very different personalities.
Our centrepieces will have a similar type of presence. Low key (I don't want big, tall centerpieces blocking everyones view on the table), colourful and have a garden cottage, wildflower feel. Hopefully, we'll be able to find appropriate seasonal flowers to keep the costs down.
I have a real passion for peonies but I think they may be out of season in Melbourne by the time we get married. My budget for wedding flowers is about 1000 dollars at the moment. I hope to be able to fit in 9 centerpieces, 1 bridal bouquet, 3 bridesmaid bouquets, button holes and corsages. Think we'll make it?
