Florist Meeting

My mom and I met with the David, our florist from McNamara Florists, on Wednesday and boy did we get a lot accomplished!!!! David was awesome at getting items crossed off the list and by the end of the meeting we pretty much had everything picked out! Can you believe it?!? I still can't!!!!

I do have a little secret to spill- I am giving David the reigns and letting him run with it! {GASP! Did she just say that she is letting him have free reign?!?} Yep! I sure am!!! David knows the basic idea of what I have envisioned for my wedding day and when your florist used to work for Martha Stewart Wedding magazine and with Oprah's main floral event's designer you know the man is a genius!!!!!

Here is a sneak peak of some of the items that will be incorporated into the different flower arrangements (pictures of a mock up will be coming in March or April).
Green Antique Hydrangeas (David said he can force these to have almost a champagne color instead of the pink)

Bells of Ireland

Champagne Roses


Large Glass Trumpet Vases

Glass Cake Plates

I know this really doesn't say much about what our wedding day flowers will look like but the flowers above are just some of the flowers that will be used to create our centerpieces, BM bouquets, etc. But I am VERY excited about where David is going with this!!!!! We met him at the McNamara Design warehouse and he took us on a tour and as we were walking through he started to pull flowers to show how the combination of flowers would look. One word for the man - GENIUS!!!!

We did decide to use large glass trumpet vases for the high centerpieces (also visualize orchids streaming down through the glass vase). The cake plates will be for our low centerpieces.

I apologize that I can't give you more but I promise that I will have pictures in a month or two! I can't tell you how relieved I am to be done with the flowers!!!! How is/did your floral planning going/go?

So exciting! I am meeting with my florist in March and can't wait to get a better idea of what he has planned. I am letting him sort of have free reign too - I don't know enough about flowers to try to dictate everything, so it still makes me a little nervous to turn it over! Can't wait to hear more about your flowers! :)

I love your flower choices! I am biased because I want roses and hydrangeas too! I love the snapdragons, the yare so pretty and not as common in weddings!
