I had another thought about bouquets. We could make the bouquets (3), boutonnieres (7-8) and corsages/mini-bouquets/whatever the mothers want (4) for the wedding the day before, and store them in our cleared-out fridge. It would definitely be a all-hands-on-deck flower party, but we could just hit the flower market that morning, see what’s available, and improvise flowers/colors from there. We’d be able to mix in herbs and garden flowers, too, making sure that there’s plenty of greenery.
And then, for centerpieces, we could grow herbs and flowers in pots (or just grow the herbs, and stick cut flowers in later), so we’d have yummy-smelling (and edible!) centerpieces that, if they aren’t all taken by people, are useful after the wedding. My flower thumb is pretty black, but my herbs and veggies thumb is pretty darn green.
So, what do you think of that?
