One of my dearest friends Courtney got married to the love of her life Steve last August. (Yes, I’m well aware this post is 8 months late. My sister has reminded me multiple times…) As a wedding gift I made their flowers – bouquets, boutonnieres, flower girl bouquets, and table arrangements. DISCLAIMER: I do not recommend making flowers for a wedding YOU’RE IN. I was exhausted.
My kind, considerate, incredible, beautiful, helpful, gracious older sister came to assist me in the morning since I was panicking for time the night before. I would not have made it without her. (She’s in the middle in the photo below.)
So Courtney and I did a trial run of flowers a few weeks before the wedding to see what she liked, sizing, ribbons, etc.
We changed some of the flower out with new choices. I ordered all the flowers in advance (FOR ONLY $350) from the Conshohocken Cut Flower Exchange. I linked to their Facebook page because the post tons of photos of what’s in stock. Ted, the owner, is incredibly helpful and ALWAYS hooks me up. They have just about every vase in multiple styles, colors, sizes, materials you could ever want. An event planner also rents warehouse space, so there’s cool stuff to look at everywhere.
Anyways, we ended up with calalillies for the Bride and Maids and Boutonnieres, and Baby’s Breath for the flower girls. Despite being exhausted, it was a beautiful wedding and an incredibly special day to be a part of. Oh yea, I also made the sign the ring bearer carried down the aisle. That was a fun project too!
Courtney and Steve, I love you both tremendously and am grateful for your love and support the past few months as I went through everything. I am so happy that I was able to stand by your side as you joined together in marriage, and wouldn’t have traded a 6am wake up call on the day of your wedding for anything in the world. xoxox
Y’all enjoy the photos. I’ve got a few other events I am doing flowers for coming up, so any advice or tips would be appreciated. As always, happy reading.
