The only flowers

Will be my bouquet. Seriously, not a single other bloom. No boutonnieres, no centerpieces, no rose-petal-covered-aisle. From a budget and tree-hugging perspective, it just makes sense.

But sure, I'll carry some flowers around. And just as TTO and A Cup of Joe have discovered, Trader Joe's carries the best dirt cheap flowers around!

I've decided the small, delicate spray rose is my fav, so a few weeks ago we picked up a single bunch ($3.99 at TJs) for a test run. I think this pink is going to be the color, it will be the one really feminine touch of the whole shebang.

This is the day before picture:

And this how well they open up after a night in water. This trial made it clear we'll need 5-6 bunches to fill it out and pick the very best flowers.

This is two bunches worth, picked up for Mother's Day. Happy Mother's Day Momma! I like that they didn't quite open up as much and aren't uniform, giving it a more organic feel. 


  1. good call! these are beautiful.

  2. I think a wedding can be fabulous without a bunch of flowers. I love the tiny roses, too :-)
