Wedding flowers.

Published by at 1:28 am under Wedding

I went to the florist yesterday for my consultation to decide which flowers everyone was going to carry/wear in the wedding.  Here’s what we decided on:

Bridal Bouquet
Cascade shape
Red Roses (Flower meaning: love)
Calla Lilies (flower meaning: beauty)
Pine boughs (meaning: hope)
Something else that sounds like “yuke”. . . not yucca.  Little green buds that I believe open into tiny white flowers.

Bridesmaids Bouquet
Arm bouquets (meaning they carry them over their arms, not that the bouquet is tied to their arm)
3 Calla Lilies
3 White Roses (flower meaning: innocence)
The “yuke” stuff
Silver ribbon

Groom’s Boutineer
Mini-calla lily
Red Rose
Pine sprig

Groomsmen’s/Father/Grandfather Boutineer
Mini-calla lily

Mother/Grandmother Corsage
White Mini-carnations (pure, deep love)

And because The Man didn’t know what a Calla lily was, here’s a picture:

I also rented an arch that I’m going to decorate with pine garland (fake) and the arch itself already has little lights on it.  I might buy some ivory tulle to put on there as well, and there are pot stands at the base – red poinsettias in there.  All in all, it’s coming together.  Now I have to get the ceremony/reception schedule together for the DJ and get the programs printed.
