In Bloom

Tomorrow I'm meeting with a local freelance florist to discuss my wedding flowers. I had initially thought about doing it myself (since I'm anal and type A like that!), but she comes highly recommended from a co-worker for her hip modern style and ability to work with various budgets (key!). I had also seen a lovely bouquet she threw together for my co-worker's wife and loved her work instantly! Can't wait to chat with her...

My vision for the tables is the mismatched collection of Etsy fabrics I told you about here, with mason jars filled with blooms and greenery plus one of my milk vase collection on each table with a single flower. The milk vase collection is really coming along - any excuse to go thrifting every week!

I also found a vendor on Etsy called Green Duckweed who hand dyes jute twine. I chose an aqua turquoise and ordered enough to use for various wedding projects. But for the tables specifically, I plan to wrap the twine around the mason jars with tags for the table numbers and maybe around the napkinds as well. I love the rustic texture of the twine and how the hand dying process is a little uneven. Just call me mis-matched bride!

I can't wait to share my vision with the florist and see what she comes up with! I'll keep you posted on how it goes...

PS: I'm not a big joiner but I threw caution to the wind and entered our engagement story in a contest for Weddings In Winnipeg. If you feel like throwing me a little love and comment support, you can check it out here!

Hope you're enjoying your Wednesday friends, countdown to the weekend is on!

  4. i love the flowers in the milk jar vases, that will be SO BEAUTIFUL!

  5. I'm not a big joiner- I think I just snort laughed- but since no one is around I guess I didn't and I'm just saying I did.

    I look forward to seeing what your florist comes up with!
