hokay so it looks like we may be having half a symphony playing during our ceremony.
Which means I'll be cutting the budget in other places. Mostly by minimizing the flowers. I wonder if small potted plants would be cheaper for the tables? Or cactus/succulents/bromeliads?
My bouquet does not need to be particularly big at all. My ladies aren't going to carry flowers.
I'm thinking about making use of more non-florals for the guestbook/cake/whatever tables as well.
spray painted branches
paper lanterns (read: sheets of scrapbooking vellum taped into a cylinder!)
LED candles LED tealights going to need lots of LED "candles" since HH doesn't allow real candles
My bouquet, still "clutch" long stem style:
lilies of the valley
bear grass loosely "woven" over the top? maybe?
palm frond/banana leaf kinda greenery
