The photo to the left was taken by Will's sister at Will and I's wedding reception back in 2006. I wanted to share this with you because the arrangement changed a few days before the wedding. We received a call from a wonderful friend saying her green hydrangea were in full bloom and we could cut as many as we'd like for our wedding if we wished. OH, WE WISHED ALRIGHT! We pretty much robbed her flower bed and our wedding and reception hall turned into a beautiful hydrangea wonderland. I remember when Will and I arrived at the hall, our breath was taken away at the transformation the flowers made. It was more beautiful than we could have ever imagined, and it wouldn't have been the same without the hundreds of hydrangea that were given to us by Mrs. Roussel. My point of telling you all of this is to show you that sometimes, with a little creativity, you can take what is outside and bring it in to create something beautiful without spending a lot of money. One of my favorite examples of bringing the beauty of the seasons in was at Paige and Tim's wedding. Their florists brought Bradford Pear tree branches in the hall to overflow and add huge emphasis and wow to the bridal party table. It worked!
If you're in the midst of planning your wedding and figuring out what your wedding flower and colors might look like, I hope this post gives you a little inspiration to be flexible, have fun and be creative.
