1. The flowers Timmy and I want most likely aren’t in peak season late June.
2. Flowers, especially the ones we want, are very very expensive.
But, take heart my friends, Timmy and I have some ideas. The florist told me about another wholesale florist, this one up in the DC area- which is good because that means no travel time for the flowers since the ones we want are rather delicate. This florist, theoretically, should have our flowers in stock even in late June and their prices are very reasonable!
Looking at our budget, and the flowers we want, Timmy and I are totally open to the idea of buying them in bulk and assembling everything ourselves. I hope my bridesmaids are up to this too! Say hello to a mimosa and bouquet making brunch ladies! (It’ll be fun I promise).
So here are the flowers we’re looking at:
- Peonies (primary)
- Cabbage roses
- O’Hara roses
- Steve Austin roses
Below are some pictures I’m using as a guide:
