My Southern I Do's - Bridal Party Flowers

When it came to flowers I knew I didn't want to spend a lot of money! At first I was only going to do babies breath! But then I learned the babies breath that I would need would be the same prices as regular flowers. Good to know! So therefore back to the Pinterest boards for some inspiration.

We will first start with the flowers! For the bridal bouquet I knew I wanted a very soft and romantic look. I loved the pale flower colors with dusty miller.

Thought the idea of monogrammed handkerchiefs around the bouquets was so cute. Not to mention the bridesmaids wouldn't lose their bouquets!

 I wanted the bridesmaids bouquets to be simple and romantic. Loved the concept of one flower caller with the dusty miller.

 And we had to some how make the boutonnieres rustic. I loved the twine wrapping the boutonnieres.

And this is what my wedding flowers looked like! 

I had my bouquet wrapped in burlap and then my Grandmother's handkerchief which she carried on her wedding day. My flower bouquet was muted flowers, babes breath and dusty miller. 

The girls carried bouquets of pink peonies and dusty miller. I also monogrammed handkerchiefs with their initials. I found the handkerchiefs at an antique store that cost $1, and then just took it to a place that monograms. Such a cute detail and very affordable. 


 And can't forget about the boys! I thought the twine on the boutonnieres helped give the wedding a rustic feel.
