Wedding Planning: The Flowers

Does the start of spring have you thinking about sunshine and blooming flowers?  I've been thinking a lot about flowers lately but not in the sense of "April showers and May flowers."  The most recent big task on the wedding planning checklist was choosing a florist!

After researching lots of options in the Grand Rapids area, we've chosen to work with Gail Vander Laan Floral.  We met with Gail at her home studio and were impressed with her ability to see our vision and work with our budget.  Of course we will all have to to wait until December to see the vision come together, but here are a few of the inspiration photos we showed Gail.

For the bouquets, we are sticking within our color pallet of navy, cranberry, blush and gold.  Gail will incorporate several different kinds of flowers in cranberry and blush with pops of blue berries and some greenery.  The shape of the bouquets will be somewhere in between an overgrown, wild look and a perfectly semetrical ball of flowers.

I'm super excited about the centerpieces!  We are going to be doing a combination of round tables and rectangular tables and no two centerpieces will be exactly alike.  For the rectangular tables, we'll have a garland of evergreen down the center of the table with flowers in our color pallet tucked into the greenery.  The round tables will feature centerpieces with the same elements.  Each table will have a collection of mercury glass candle holders as well.

I absolutely can't wait to see what our flowers will look like on our big day!
