Might I rant about flowers? A trip to three florists the other day has it on my brain. I am booked in for an appointment on Saturday morning to ‘discuss’ further ideas.
Firstly, I have decided against trying to do them myself despite it being the far cheaper options.
Fact: flowers are living things and they die if you keep them too long. I do not want to be mucking around with trying to get things right for me and 4 bridesmaids the night before or the morning of the wedding. We are cutting costs elsewhere. This is my justification and it aint going to change.
Tell me why people find the following flowers attractive, particularly in weddings?
I don’t get it! Big showy spikey things. Colour is the only thing that saves many from looking like they belong in funerals – but even then they don’t work.
A prime example of lillies being used in the most hideous sense.
Let me now express my dislike of trailing bouquets. Give me a round maybe even slightly disorganized bouquet, but not something that looks like it belongs at Niagra. None of this cascading crap. (Alliteration is the only reason I’m using the word crap here, I have seen a few bouquets like this look okay but most don’t work).
Leave them in the tropics, they don’t look good in bouquets. They grow attached to trees…. On the odd occasion (if small and mixed with a mass of other stuff) they’ll pass, but nope. If you’re in Hawaii, you can have orchids. And NOT the fluro purple ones.
Finally, any bouquets that resemble this should be banned, they belong in… the 80’s (I think – if ever)
Throw me something more wild – poppies, peonies, ranunculus, roses (some), green leaf things, berries…
