Fall wedding, fall colors. Likes: reds, purples, deep oranges. Dislikes: bright yellows, too much filler, anything that resembles a weed.

#1 Maybe a bit big and far too many leaves, but I like the colors.


#2 I like the overall colors in this one and I think the size is about right.


#3 I mostly like the combination of reds and purples here.


#4 Maybe I should just forget the whole thing and go all (red) berries!


I have an appointment with the florist this afternoon to start discussing options. She asked that I bring pictures of everything — my dress, the bridesmaid dresses, centerpiece ideas, my colors and anything that has ever caught my eye. I think it’s a really good sign that she wants to see the cohesive picture in order to best help me pick my flowers.

I also hope she has a tray of martinis and a pile of grilled cheese sandwiches, but that might be expecting a little too much from my florist.
