As some of you know, I am having my wedding ceremony on October 17th. It’s going to be a big, festive shindig, with my new husband and I exchanging our public vows in front of our friends and loved ones at the Maryland Renaissance Festival. The party to follow will be a veritable spice box, with bellydancers, delicious Middle Eastern food, and a gorgeous Autumnal cupcake tower. We’re also attempting to do this on a relatively small budget, as the idea of a big white wedding didn’t really suit either of us. And when it came time to select a bouquet, I wanted faux flowers– something that would stay vibrant and lovely forever.
Enter April Rissell of Gardens of Whimsy:
Would you believe that this beautiful bouquet cost me about 1/3 what a comparable live flower bouquet would cost? No? I didn’t either. It’s SO beautiful! Her work is so lovely that I also sprang for the Harvest Rose clip in her shop… methinks the Nicolette might be next.
