recap: details - the flowers

Saturday, 29th September, 2012

Ooooh our flowers. How I loved them. The bridesmaids bouquets in particular (is that weird?!) Our florists did such a wonderful job...I may have mentioned it before but our bouquet florists were family friends of mine - I grew up dancing with Tiffany, who made and designed our actual bouquets. Her mum has owned their florist store for as long as I remember, and my dad used to help out with deliveries on really busy days of the year (like Valentine's Day) when I was a kid.

Below are the bouquets they made. The girls' were PERFECT. Mine was lovely, I probably would have liked it a little less structured, with more of the dusty miller showing, but other than that it was spot on. It's currently dried out and waiting for me to work some crafty magic to display it! Enjoy!

(Please note that I'm super nervous about sharing Sandra's work here but I don't want to watermark her gorgeousness.

The following photos are the flowers designed by the team attached to the Sebel. The lady who did these was *lovely* and really tried to listen to what we wanted and what we were having in our bouquets and boutonnieres and make them as close as possible (without seeing them! how hard!). The long and low displayed on the white tale at our ceremony (which was actually a half size long and low - we split two smaller ones over our bridal table, as you'll see in our reception pics!) was moved to our reception afterwards, as were the pedestal flowers AND we got to take them all home afterwards! I wish we could have enjoyed them but since we jetted off to the Gold Coast a day or so later, my Mum gave one to my MIL and kept the other at home. The centrepieces disappeared by the end of the reception, but we were hapy with that since we wanted our families and friends to take them home anyway!

oh my, the chats we had about getting these centrepieces to work :) they were very different from the normal centrepieces the Sebel staff create (mostly glassware, floating candles/flowers, etc.) but we were happy with how they turned out!

Well, that's all our flowers! Onto the nitty gritty...

Next Up: Arriving at the Ceremony!...
