Our Wedding Flowers

As far as weddings go I don't think ours was very traditional in the flower corner. The boys didn't have any button holes & I forgot to bring the posies that I made for my girls (they were safely in the fridge when I got home - yes I am a dunce) but the flowers that were incorporated were perfect so I wanted to share them with you all.

First up I should probably explain that I had very little idea as to what any of the flowers would look like until the day. When I met with our florist (Maria from Sorori Design) I explained that I love the wildflower style & that I wanted my bouqet to look as though I had picked it from an obliging field. I had complete trust in their ability so I left instruction around my bouquet at that.

The only element that I gave any clear instruction for was around the colour of our centre pieces. I wanted each table to have an individual colour rather than a table name & I wanted our top table to be a mix of everyone's table colour.

This idea was something that evolved as I was planning our wedding. I was lucky enough to receive a huge box of jelly belly beans from my Uncle Greg early on in our planning days & I eventually chose to use them as our favours. I bought some organza bags to distribute them into & decided that I loved that pop of colour so wanted to continue that among the rest of the decor. I thought it would be fun to be able to tell where you were sitting from afar because of a bright pop of colour announcing your table & I felt like the top table incorporating everyone's colour created that feeling of family & unity.

Once I had decided on that theme I created our seating plan by sticking hand-written coloured hearts around a large frame with brown backing & rather than have traditional name places I had a corresponding heart name on each place setting next to their jelly belly favour. I also hand wrote thank you's & a menu card for each of the tables that were backed with brown paper & had small blue hearts in the top right corner.

What I thought was so sweet was how Maria kept my theme going. She added many of the table colours into my bouquet along with wheat & lavender, then tied it with Hessian & brown string. I couldn't have asked for anything more perfect, it suited us down to the ground & created a look that was entirely personal to us & one that I have never seen before.

Although I don't really have a particular care for flowers I did have a vision as to how I wanted them to add to the feel of the venue & Maria got it spot on. Along with the bouquet & centre pieces, Sorori also provided gypsophila for along the mezanene which I think looked lovely. There were also fresh roses in the reception that were stunning. My DIY lavender candles also made an appearance on each of the tables, as did a heart shaped lavender wreath.

Everything was eclectic but somehow worked in absolute harmony. I couldn't have been happier.
