plan a modern wedding in the middle of the country

While the FI and I have a pretty minimal flower budget, mostly because neither of us really want a ton of flowers at our wedding, but can you believe this?

I cannot even imagine how much money this couple spent on flowers for their wedding!  It’s like being in an indoor garden or a flower wonderland! Insane!  I bet it smelled wonderful in there!


  1. Ya know….if she used some artificial in the mix, it may not have set her back as much as you think. Either way…..BEAUTIFUL!!

    @Georgia Very true! That is an insane amount of flowers, but very pretty!

  3. Wow…gorgeous but that’s a LARGE floral budget!

    @Jen Thanks for stopping by! It’s crazy how many flowers they used! I’d love to meet their florist!

  5. I had a girlfriend that had a very similar set-up but with white orchids. She also had an enormous wedding budget. It was beautiful, but for me, flowers aren’t as big of a concern.

  6. So very lovely, but the environmental impact makes me want to cry. (apparantly I’m a hippie this morning)

    @Sarah Flowers aren’t that important to me either, which is why we won’t use very many.

    @Stephanie It’s okay, I thought the same thing when I first saw that picture. Broke my eco-friendly heart.

  8. Eco-unfriendly but seriously beautiful!
