Sorry you guys, you’re going to have to put up with me getting my Bridal on, even though it was so two weeks ago ;)
Having been a bridesmaid 4 times previously, I was well over fresh flowers for my own wedding bouquets. So I went silk, buying pre-prepared bouquets from Aussie Etsy seller Flowers by the Vase.
These are the “Sweetie Pie” Bridesmaid (~US$50) and Bridal (~US$70) bouquets but there are heaps of options available and the girls take custom orders too.
Silk flowers are great for us lazy Brides (armchair shopping, plus one less thing to get delivered to your house on The Big Day) AND you can gift the bridemaid’s bouquet as part of your thank you gift to her (bonus points!).
I was really chuffed with the speedy service I got from Flowers by the Vase and they even threw in some freebie boutonnieres (that’s “button holes” for the rest of us).
Psst, if you ask noicely, Jarod might do a post on how to get your cats involved in your wedding ceremony ;)
