So all through out this wedding planning it seems like I have had to “sell” my ideas on my mom. I’d come up with this incredible must have idea and then I would have to talk it up and talk it up and talk it up some more. Then I’d have to research and find photographic evidence and in some cases make a sample for her to be convinced and fall for my idea as much if not more than I had.
Well from the beginning she was not going for my mix fake and real flowers idea. But I plugged along even when she snubbed her nose at my awesome bridesmaid blooms… and today when i was selecting stems at Micheal’s 40% off fall stems sale, she was not convinced. And I had my first semi bridezilla moment in front of two of my bridesmaids.
I tried to remain calm, and said “Yes, I’m being anal about the flowers but I know what I want for the boutonnières and I am buying these.”
So when i got home I put together a sample Bout minus the fresh mini sunflower (which will be placed in the back) and she was convinced.
I’m a pretty good floral arranger, no? So I will be trimming my bundles to size and clustering but the wrapping will be saved for once the sunflowers are added… I gotta make at least 20 of these babies….
What did your boutonnières look like? Send pics for inspiration 🙂
