Wedding flowers – where to start?!
We are getting married later in the year at St Giles hotel in Norwich and we are both slowly planning things. The Walnut Suite is pretty amazing and finished to an excellent standard, so we aren’t going to need hundreds of wedding flowers to make it look pretty as it’s already stunning.
I am thinking one bouquet, one button hole and two sets of flowers for the tables for our wedding.
I have really mixed ideas on what to have for the bouquet of flowers for my wedding flowers. I quite like the pomander flowers, which are generally made of silk flowers and can be kept. I have seen some lovely pomanders on Etsy for wedding flowers. However do I really need hundreds of things to keep after my wedding day? That sounds incredibly unromantic! Or do I go for a more traditional looking bouquet for my wedding flowers? Or even a vintage style one?!
I am going to put another list of Norwich florists together for bridal flowers and google lots of images. Ideally I would love to go with a local firm for my wedding flowers.
I originally liked the idea of picking up the flowers myself from a local wholesalers like the Sweet Briar Wholesale Flowers and creating them myself…. but now I’m not feeling quite so brave to create my own wedding flowers.
Also need to decide on colours for the wedding, so I can choose flowers to match. Currently thinking a blush pink with a silvery grey. I am starting to see how planning a wedding drives some people slightly nuts hehe.
I also have that horror that I will pick the wrong florist and they will get the order hideously wrong resulting in no flowers for my wedding as they have messed up the delivery date! Ideally I would love to go with local and recommendation, so please do comment on my blog with suggestions and tips.
