Wedding ... flowers

Flowers are such a beautiful part of the wedding
I think Jacquelyn loves flowers as much as I do!

A lot of brides go with white bouquets but Jacquelyn wanted contrast with her gown and flowers and the same for the bridal party
So for her bouquet, she had white lilies, blue orchids, purple delphinium and then some smaller flowers that were mainly blue and purple

see the white hanging from the bouquet .... that is the baby bonnet that she wore home from the hospital when she was born (her something old)

the bridesmaids had bouquets of white hydrangea along with some other small white flowers. The florist was supposed to add some purple and blue lisianthis and delphiniums but here lies one of the mistakes they made.

the flower girl wore a halo of purple alstromeria and white baby's breath.
she carried a metal pail with starfish and ribbons and it contained
purple and blue petal buds from the delphinium

the groom had blue dendrobium on a skinny starfish

the groomsmen wore fuschia denro with blue delphiniums

we had 3 long stem calla lillies in remembrance of grandparents no longer with us

the centerpieces for the tables were square vases wrapped in purple and blue ribbon
they contained blue hydrangea, blue and purple delphinium and sea holly.

We dealt with a lot of vendors and I can say I was completly satisfied with all of them except the florist. We did not receive the centerpiece for the bride and grooms table and the florist has been in dispute with us.
That is not to say the flowers were not beautiful.....they did an outstanding job on them!
But they messed up and they do not see where they are at fault...It is at the point of just saying forget it!
and I will not name names BUT.....if you're planning a wedding in the Outer Banks, let me know and I'll tell you which florist to avoid! 

wedding tip ....  review with the florist over and over and over and over!! haha

I have recently been quoted by a florist, for my wedding day flowers.varlets of wedding flowers are available of the wedding functions...I think what you have to decide is how important the flowers are to you.
