My favorite flower has always been the Stargazer Lilly. I love their fragrant scent and their beautiful coloring, but the thought of smelling them on the day of my wedding gave me a headache just thinking about it. Plus, they start wilting very, very quickly, and I don’t want to have dying flowers on my wedding day. It would kinda bring the mood down a bit, don’t ya think?
But something wasn’t right. While I think they’re a gorgeous flower, they just didn’t have that soft, romantic vibe that I was longing to achieve. And they almost seemed to be a flower fit for a spring wedding.
And then I found them—or something similar, at least.
I first found this photo and loved it. So lush, so romantic, so…perfect. The problem is that the flowers are peonies, and not only are they not available in February, but they cost a very pretty penny.
And then—after more wedding-blog stalking online—I saw an article about wedding flowers on the cheap and this was the photo accompanying the article:
We recently signed with our florist, Savon Cash and Carry Flowers (the one on Candelaria if you’re familiar with the area), and I’m really excited about how they took my vision and ran with it.
I saw them at a bridal show, along with several other florists in town, and loved their display. All of the flowers they showcased had the modern/classic vibe that I liked. We didn’t even meet with any another florist.
What do you think, are carnations cheap or chic? And what flowers will you/did you have for your wedding?
