plan a modern wedding in the middle of the country

Dear Fellow Brides,

I know flowers are gorgeous. Trust me, I love them, too (despite the fact I’m not using them at the wedding). But, you don’t need some massive bouquet.  Instead, opt for something more tasteful and classic. You don’t need extra weight to carry on your wedding day. Plus, there is something so chic about a simple bridal bouquet.

P do S: How gorgeous are the pink and white peonies in that bouquet? Le swoon.

    No flowers in your wedding? I kind of like that idea…we are getting married on the beach and I was thinking about using fake flowers….Are you using anything in place of flowers for you or the bridal party?

  3. What a gorge bouquet!

  4. I totally agree. I love small bouquets, especially for bridesmaids! Beautiful pic.

  5. SO completely true Brit! Brides should have a bouquet that is proportionate with their body size! If you get a gigantic bouquet and you’re 5’1, it’s going to be a little overpowering! Plus you want everyone to see your gorgeous dress!

    I definitely subscribed to the smaller is better philosophy for my own wedding!

    There’s more to life than a gigantic bouquet — not to mention it’s better for your budget! 🙂

    Totally obsessed with the sprig of eucalyptus complimenting those pink and white peonies, swoon to the max!
