I’m sort of in agreement with Grandma Harper about this: to me, flowers from flower shops smell like the flower room at the Fun Home. It’s not that I’m really against them, they’re really pretty, but I’m not so fond of the smell. I think it might be the foam, but it also might be the fridge that they store them in. So, I’ve been collecting some ideas about what might be fun as something to ask for as an addition/change when I talk to shops, or as an alternative to flowers for me and for the members of Team Bride that are cool with carrying bouquets.
- Herbal wedding bouquets and veggie ones!
- Love this fern bouquet
- Crystals, another photo, and bejeweled bouquets
- Parasols, but umbrellas are cuter
- Fondant seems melty
- A purse
I really like the addition of herbs to a bouquet, since I still love the bright colors, or the fern/greenery/simple flower approach. If we go to our back-up plan of having teh ceremony in the park next to the Mary Gay House and it’s raining, I love the colored umbrellas (though we’d have the ceremony under the tent.)
Any other ideas?
