Flowers and Decor

As the title of this blog suggests, I love both the girly and the green. I used those sentiments as a guide when choosing the decor elements of our celebration.
To compliment our venue and capture our personal style, we are aiming to create a party that feels organically elegant. These are photos I used as inspiration:

For our flowers, I'm drawn to a mix of formal and informal blooms and loose arangements so these are the photos I sent to the florist as inspiration:

Eco Elements:

  • We sourced vintage mason jars and medicine bottles from flea markets and antique stores which will hold our centerpieces (etsy and ebay are also great resources)
  • Where possible, I asked my florist to use local and seasonal flowers.
  • We are mixing aromatic herbs into flower arrangements, bouquets and decor
  • We are planning to repurpose or recycle our decor elements; Vintage Glam Flea Market, Recycle Your Wedding, Bride to Bride Boutique and Bravo Bride all offer ways to buy and sell to other brides. This is a perfect way to give a second life to the 100 votives you used at the reception or the aisle runner you can't use again.

Girly and green thats the way to go. The images from the inspiration board are just lovely. Local flowers I am sure are the best. Also what a great idea to sell the decor elements to other brides.

Love every bit of it! We saved up Classico spaghetti mason jars for eons and bought our glass drink dispensers from Costco for only $27! My dad and step-mom made our signs out of the barn wood, too. LOVE what you've picked!! It's going to be amazing.
