SIMPLY FLORALS: Spring Bouquets

Flowers, flowers, flowers. There is nothing that naturally puts a bigger smile on my face than fresh cut flowers that I get to be play with. I don't have a story of this being something I grew up loving, blah blah, it's much newer. I really do have Layla to thank for it to be honest. I loved watching her put together bouquets and arrangements and loved how creative she was and knew that I wanted to do that exact same thing. Now I don't have any formal education in flowers (is there even such a thing? I'm sure there is...) But I did learn the basics from Layla. And I asked lots of questions. Like, how do you get that succulent to stay in that bouquet even though it doesn't have a long stem? And I take the time to be that person who looks at wedding bouquets in magazines and I literally read every single type of flower that is in that bouquet so that I can learn the different flower names. Then I go online and I research everything I can about those flowers, what time of year can you get them, tips for putting them in floral arrangements, etc. This kind of stuff really excites me. And not just that but it just naturally puts a big smile on my face. I can still remember the first time I went to the wholesaler and bought a bunch of flowers, just because I wanted to play around with some arrangements... I smiled literally the entire day.

Now that wedding season is finally in full gear for us right now I am so excited to announce that we will be doing the flowers for our first wedding this weekend! I cannot wait! I am beyond excited!! A little nervous, but mostly excited and anxious that they are happy with the outcome! And then... double bonus... I am putting together all the flowers for our styled shoot on Monday with Shannon Christopher. This is kind of a big deal because I had full freedom to completely design the flowers, the colors, etc. I cannot wait to share everything with you all!!! Follow me on Instagram and Facebook for some sneak peaks along the way!!! That being said, I am getting so excited for spring and with spring comes gorgeous flowers! Here are just a couple bouquets that I love for a spring wedding!!!
