Welcome to the second post of my Wedding Wednesday series! You all had such kind things to say about my bridal portraits (thank you) and now I am excited to give you many more glimpses into our big day; from the first look, venue, DIY touches, and more but today is about the flowers! As I have mentioned before my dress and photographer were two of the most important things to me when I was wedding planning but the blooms definitely became one of the highlights! Four months before our original wedding date Mark and I met with the florists and while I was armed with photos I found it hard to articulate my vision because besides knowing I love lilies and don’t like baby’s breath I was not too particular about types. Thus I left it up to the expert and after sending more Pinterest inspo shots then the ladies at Something Bloomed probably ever wanted I love the neutral wedding flowers we decided on.
We had a fairly large order including my bridal bouquet, the bridesmaids bouquets, boutonnieres, corsages for my grandmothers. The biggest item was the flower arch, or arbor ,which was the back drop for our ceremony and inside the venue we had flowers on our cocktail tables, dinner tables, a large piece of for the head table. and blooms all around our cake.All photos were taken by our photographer, Tonya Malay, Take a look at these gorgeous flowers:

And in case you are a floral novice like me or you are also planning a wedding, these are the 20+ types of blooms we decided to go with which you can see across the dozens of arrangements above:
All of these flowers were done by a Southwest Florida based company called Something Bloomed. They were fantastic to work with and I would definitely recommend them and their floral design team if you are planning an event in the area – from our first meeting to the breakdown the day after the wedding they really did bring my visions to life and exceed my expectations.
What do you think of our neutral wedding flowers?
