I guess I should talk a little bit about flowers . . . for a long time we were thinking of ordering the flowers and then putting them together ourselves with some help of a friend or two. Well, we changed our minds and now we are getting the flowers done by an old friend who just reopened a flower shop in downtown called Stems Uptown! The woman is named Shelly and I probably bought 12 bouts from her throughout high school. When I came in to get my last bout for my senior prom she actually called my wedding!! Funny how things work out!

So here are some of the bouts I was thinking about (or at least that I liked!):
We are actually getting this one! Tied with the leather! So masculine . . . our succulent is actually going to be more green though. Living in SoCal I have started to love succulents . . . especially since my non-existent green thumb kills every other plant I have . . . except for maybe the cactus!

Now onto some of the bouquets that I like so much!!

This is somewhat similar to what my bouquet will look like. Mostly white hydrangea with bits of purple coming up out of the white. I think mine is prettier . . . but very similar style!

I also want my bridesmaids to have ribbon hanging down like in these pictures!!

For my bouquet I wanted it wrapped in something. I thought about ribbon like the bridesmaids . . . but then I saw these pretty wraps too!!

And then one more very important flower is the flower girl crowns. Look how cute little girls look in these things!!
