Today, while we’re on the subject of DIY wedding flowers, I wanted to highlight APW sponsor Blooms By The Box an their *super helpful* new flower blog. By *super helpful* I mean, I’m vaguely annoyed that they were not writing it when I was teaching myself about flowers, and I’m not kidding.Some highlights:
- Alternatives to Peonies, if you really want them, but are getting married at the wrong time of year.
- Working with the flower color wheel. If you are doing your own bouquet, you must read this post now, I SWEAR. It’s 100% true, and will save you so much heartache. Helpful! Helpful!
- Thoughts about filler in bouquets. I’m here to tell you that you need filler (‘spensive otherwise, and boring) but we’re all so over baby’s breath and ferns, right? Yeah. time to think about seeded Eucalyptus.
And you know they sell flowers too right? Done and done.
