I had a lot of fun picking out all the flowers for the wedding. My bouquet and the bridemaids bouquet were the only ones we had made professionally. The rest of the flowers in the church and at the reception my mum made herself in a flower frenzy the night before the wedding. We probably did save money but I’m not sure my mum would agree the stress was worth it!

I would love to tell you all the flowers that were in my bouquet but to be honest I can’t remember! I asked for deep reds and dusky whites and wild flowers. I also gave the florist a strip of blue velvet fabric from my coat which she wrapped around the stems and pinned in place with pearl pins.

I asked for blue anemones for the bridesmaids bouquets. The florist was reluctant to use them as they tend to droop within a few hours of being out of water but I have to say these stayed beautiful for the whole day and looked amazing.

I’m meeting with a potential wedding florist on Saturday and she asked me to bring a swatch of my wedding dress material and also some images of bouquets I liked. So thought I’d share the images with you all.

Really like the colour of the ranunculus and the use of eucalyptus and winterberry.

This is very different form anything else I’ve seen – love the gray colours but maybe its not right for me.

This bouquet uses cockscomb (the deep-pink ruffle-edged flower) and a thick velvet-ribbon bouquet wrap to give a rich textured effect. The idea of a velvet ribbon wrap is great as I’m wearing a velvet coat at the wedding. I could get some of this material to use on my bouquet.

Excuse the two small photos but I love the idea of have hanging plums and berries as part of the table displays.

garter

Some of the nicest wedding garters I’ve seen have come from Agent Provocateur. I particularly like the prettiness of this one called Cynthia. But somebody told me it was unlucky to buy your own garter for your wedding and that your bridesmaid had to do it. I’ll be emailing her over the link to the Agent Provocateur website pronto!

Here’s a game to play at a Hen weekend. Much more fun than pinning the tail on the donkey!

The best game I’ve played at a Hen weekend has been a Mr & Mrs type game or How well does the bride know the groom. Before the hen party, the bridemaids ask the groom a series of personal questions. At the hen party the Hen is asked the questions and if she gives the same answer, then she nominates someone to drink a shot or do a forfeit, if she gets it wrong then its her that has to do the forfeit or drink. The questions can be as naughty or as innocent as you like!
