Big Pouffy Flowers

Seeing as how we are getting married in the desert, I know I should be investigating interesting succulent and cacti bouquets (and I suppose I SORT of am) but I say NO! It's not a white wedding without big pouffy flowers!

Even though lilies are by far my favorite flower, they just don't feel right for the wedding to me. In case you're wondering what particular big pouffy flowers I do have in mind, here are my absolute favorites that I am hoping to incorporate into our wedding: peonies, ranunculas, protea, sweet peas, parrot tulips, lily of the valley, anemones, and hydrangea (and gardenias, even though I know they're not pouffy). Yum!

I always thought it was silly to obsess over the florals for a wedding but now that I am planning my own wedding, searching out the perfect bouquet has become quit a pastime of mine. Here's some gorgeous ones containing the flowers I love...




The idea of paper flowers intrigues me, but these are the only ones I have found so far that don't look completely terrifyingly kindergarten kraft homemade and unfortunately they are PRICEY.

Just for fun, here's a couple with the dreaded succulents that actually look good...

I love the peonies!!! though surprisingly the succulents actually do make pretty bouquets. I still think the soft, elegant, flowers are the prettiest for a beautiful bride.

Ok... so the succulents with the purple ribbon actually do look amazing.
