Wedding Flowers: Daisy, Daisy

The daisy has always been considered a cheerful flower. Regardless of the variety, these mini suns have always represented summer with vibrancy and merriment.

One delicate daisy in a vase or a whole bouquet – it doesn’t matter because they will look lovely no matter what.

There are many different types of daisies, the most well known being the white and yellow variety. In actuality the only place that doesn’t have its own variety of this lovely flower is Antarctica. The rest of the world sports this flower, whether big or small, somewhere in the wild.

When you were younger the perfect flower to determine whether or not he loved you – was the daisy.

He loves me, he loves me not, he loves me, he loves me not… He loves me!!”

“Tea for Two” – Wedding Centerpiece Ideas

Tea Setting
There is something about tea that implies contentment and relaxation. It’s not like coffee in the way that we drink it to survive the day – I find drinking tea is something that people do because they genuinely enjoy it. It’s relaxing or refreshing or just plain tasty.

It can be a social event, a time to sit down with the family or just take a moment for yourself. Of course there is also the fact that the act of steeping and drinking tea is deeply rooted in many cultures across the globe. Continue reading

The first thing most people think of when discussing destination weddings is sun, sand and palm trees. While that is one popular option, it isn’t everything a destination wedding encompasses. A destination wedding is simply a wedding that is held in a place other than where the Bride and Groom reside. It could even be a wedding held in their hometown. Continue reading
