The Select Few

I tried to narrow down my floral inspiration pix.  Really, I did!  It’s just that…I have so many.  And they’re all so beautiful.

My auntie called yesterday to schedule an appointment to talk about my wedding flowers, and she asked me to bring some pictures.  I wonder how many qualifies as “some”…cuz there’s a lot more where these came from!  I’ve narrowed it down to the following photos.

For my bouquet, I would love a giant, yummy-smelling fluffball.  Key word being fluffball.

We could add light hints of our wedding colors—pink, orange, and yellow:

Or stick with what I know best—pink pink pink!  (Isn’t Mrs. Daffodil so beautiful?)

Onto the bridesmaids’ bouquets!  The ones below have just the right pinkness, softness, and roundness; but they look so heavy!  We might go a tad smaller.  I don’t want anyone’s arms falling off during the ceremony.

You can see all the creamy, petal-y gorgeousness in this close up.  We wouldn’t have purple anemones in ours.

What about my dashing groom?  A mini calla lily on its own looks classic and dignified—not too flowery or fluffy.  I’ll have to okay this with Adam, but I think it’d be the perfect accent on the men’s tuxes.

A cheery, vibrant arrangement could welcome guests when they enter the reception venue.  If we have two of these, they could work double-time as altar arrangements!

The centerpieces will be bright and homey.

If the ones above are too pricey, I’ll ask her what she thinks of this “loose” arrangement.

Unwrapped, this bouquet would be my perfect centerpiece.  All our colors are represented in a mix of fun and luxurious florals:

For the cocktail hour, we’ll place some simple pieces on the high tables and on the bar.

And finally, here is my cake inspiration that I posted about long ago.  It’s just perfection.

15?!  This might be too much.  I want to give my auntie a complete idea of what I like, but I don’t want to overwhelm her.  When it comes to sharing your ideas with vendors, how do you find the line between helpful and overwhelming?
