No matter what type of planning personality you have, whether it’s a ‘hands on managing the entire process’ kind or a ‘sitting on the sidelines happily watching as someone else takes care of it for you’ sort, you’ve no doubt given your wedding day flowers some thought. You’ve probably got an idea of what types of bouquets you want for you and your girls, the sort of arrangements you want for your centerpieces, even the kind of boutonniere the boys should wear. But beyond all that there are plenty of other ways to incorporate beautiful floral details into your wedding day, each one elevating your decor to the next level of gorgeous. Here’s just a few examples to help get your floral planning underway. And if you love flowers as much as I do, you’ll want to incorporate each and every one.
