    Not getting married abroad but wanted to comment to say how beautiful I think your boquets are. Have a vague idea of what I want mine to be like a friend who does flower arranging classes is making them all for me she's very nervous but im not overly bothered if it goes wrong ive always loved the idea of carrying a single flower x

    wow, stunning flowers, they all look lovely.

    I'm not sure what flowers were having yet, still trying to decide!
    I do love roses and gerberas though.

    Are you having flowers for mother of the bride and mother of the groom, corsage flowers I think they are called.
    As my mum mentioned this yesterday and didn't realise I had to organise this as well as bouquet and button hole flowers for men.

    Unfortunately MrsGregory I lost my mum 2 years ago, but to know she is with us on our special day I will be having a personalised memory candle lit on our table to remember her by.

    I have to agree, the memory candle is a lovely idea.
    Hope I haven't upset you?

    Lovely flowers!!!!

    I'm having this for my bouquet, but with ivory peonies instead of the crysanthemums (they weren't in season when my florist made me a mock up)

    These are our centrepieces - which will be surrounded by votive candles, in the style of the second pic

    Is anyone else trying to match their perfume with their bouquet?
    I was all set to wear Viva la juicy on the day which has jasmine and gardenia in it.
    My florist said that gardenia would be too much hassle, so I'm now thinking of wearing Flowerbomb, as it has rose, freesia and jasmine in it, which I am having in my bouquet, amongst other things.
    I love the top notes of VLJ, but the base notes of Flowerbomb. (smells like chocolate!) I own both so it's not a money issue.
    Any thoughts?

    Ooh I'd not thought of that before Frogbitch! I'm definitely going to get a new perfume for the day because Ian really picks up on smells (eg when I take a new perfume on holiday, he then associates that smell with wherever we went, which is odd when I wear it again and he tells me - "you smell like Paris"!!).

    I love the pictures posted in this topic, makes me think I really need to book a florist! Think I'll be having a posy rather than a shower bouquet, but not really sure just yet.

    I never worried about my perfume. I don't like really strong scents anyway, so I had 'falling in love' by Philosophy. It was lovely and light and didnt interfere with the flowers at all.

    You can get blue hydranga flowers they are lovely. You could also have things like lavender as that comes in loads of blues and purples. For your tables you could have delphiniums they look gorgeous, but it really depends on the time of year you are getting married and what is in season. Are you doing your own flowers or having a florist? Def go and ask florists what they would recommend as they will have loads of ideas for you :D
