Our Wedding {Flowers & Table Decor}

Feb 15, 2013

Never in my life have I been too into flowers.
This aspect of the wedding was pretty much taken on by my mother
(Other than my one contribution: No roses)
Somehow her and the florist convinced me to allow garden roses (only because they look similar to peonies.
Our bouquets were made of of peonies, garden roses, ranunculus, and hypericum berries in shades of coral, tangerine and pink with accents of scabiosa pods, seeded eucalyptus, and salal leaves 
(The florist gave me that description, believe me, I'm not capable of spouting that off on my own)
. . . and the table decorations we made using loose individual flowers placed in bottles (with some vintage books and cameras mixed in between)

I knew I wanted to incorporate slivers of trees into our centerpieces, so we found these is someones yard (we offered to pay them first) and then had a friend slice them into different widths.
For the outdoor table we had candles in mason jars surrounded by moss and also rosemary in lightbulbs.
(I actually stole this idea from Whiskey Cake, in Plano)

I absolutely LOVE your idea for the outdoor tables! I might have to steal the idea off you and your bouquets were lovely :) I'm not too into flowers either so I think I'll let my mother handle that one when the time comes! Haha
