DIY Wedding #11: le Fleur.

Moment of transparency, this is one subject that I probably fail at as a woman. I have never possessed the magical "green thumb," I don't know how to arrange flowers in an appealing way, and my favorite flower is a daisy--partly because I truly love them, and partly because I can't seem to recall any other flower by name. Ok, so I know "hydrangea," but I got lucky because they grow by my parents house. It's all a work in progress, I'm determined to learn.

Needless to say, I was pretty clueless when it came to the specific flowers that I wanted in my bouquet. Thankfully, my florist/wedding coordinator/good friend, Ginny was able to transform my wish for a "hipster, woodsy, whimsical, wildflower" look into actual bouquets.

I'm no florist, so instead of raving about flower types I'm going to conduct this post in a very straightforward manner. As a bride who wants beautiful flowers on her wedding day, I want you to know all of your options to help you think outside of the box when it comes to picking your bouquet. As for deciding on specific flowers, that's up to you!
