Blooming in a Non-Traditional Kind of Way

Happy Wednesday doll face!

Hopefully you are feeling as wonderful as I am today...the sun is shining, I am wearing a 3/4 sleeve blouse without sweating like a pig, and Starbucks is playing some pretty legit music right now...what a trifecta of awesomeness!

Today I want to blow your mind with a totally amazing bridal trend that I just know you will adore as much as I do and it involves blooms at your nuptials. Now when I was planning my wedding last year, I was disgusted by how much money was spent on was crazy...we could have bought 85 trillion frappuccinos at Starbucks with that kind of cash. Begrudgingly and caffeine-less we moved forward with the process and there were flowers all over the stinkin' place on our big day...and you know what?! Those dang things died pretty much the next day...I wanted them to survive until we at least celebrated our 100th anniversary!

Naturally, now that I am married, I am noticing brides taking a phenomenal new approach...faux florals! Now, I can pretty much guarantee that you are envisioning some terrible images but don't, these ladies are truly onto something.

Not only are they aesthetically pleasing, but they will last a lifetime and baby, you had me at forever.

Take a look at some of my favorites! I just adore the fabric flower bouquets (I am biased since Cocroft & Delbridge makes some pretty astoundingly beautiful ones) and the brooch glamourous!

Obviously these beauties were made by the fabulous women at Cocroft & Delbridge!

If this trend had debuted sooner I would be looking at a fabulous reminder of my day as opposed to a sad, shriveled relic! Oh, man.

Until next time, I will be tending to my crispy petals...xo
