    My daughter was recently in her best friend's wedding and I agreed to do the wedding flowers as my gift to the wedding couple. I have occasionally done flowers for weddings in the past and never in the capacity of doing it all from A to Z. I did the table decorations, bridal and bridesmaids, bouts and corsages. They were green orchid flower with spikey accents. The bridesmaids had a touch of fuschia and the brides was all green and a touch of cream.
    Here is a link to my photobucket. In the one pic is my dtr, granddaughter and this old grandma.

    I didn't know how to do corsages, bouts or a cascade bouquet, but with the power of the internet for you tube on how to do things, and just the plethora of ideas, it was time consuming, but very fun to do. I was laid up all summer with foot surgery, so I had plenty of time to obsess over every detail!!!
