My eternal optimist fiance and I discovered a shirt in a Tahoe souvenir shop that explains the same sentiment a little differently...although Mr.PS feels that it accurately describes his dealings with me on occassion, and we both laugh when we see it - ha! Yes, this shirt is in my pajama rotation.
My trouble is that I didn't want to care about wedding flowers. Pretty enough, I prefer to love succulent plants. To me they are the real-life translation of a Dr. Seuss book setting. Case in point, here's a look at our balcony, with not a traditional flower in sight.
Initial attempts at flower inspiration included these lovelies in the equation.
Succulents happen to be a major trend in wedding decor nowadays. And trends usually up the asking price. Since we decided that flowers fall low on the list of budgeted priorities, it was back to the drawing board. Several months, hundreds of hours logged on google and one parrot later, I found IT - perfection. Ahhhh, sweet flower relief and my new happy place! Thankfully, they go with decisions already made, especially the attire of the entire wedding party. Whew.
The fascinating part of the wedding planning process for me is that when I truly get it and it feels right, everything falls into place and is naturally very easy! Wait a minute, did I just say that?!
And now here it is, my final flower inspiration you've all been patiently waiting 4 posts to see...
Now that I've revealed mine, what's your favorite? And where do flowers rank on your list of priorities? Post a comment and show me some love!
