the flowers

I should have posted this awhile ago but I guess I forgot about it. My mom, sister, aunt, cousin, and myself met with the florist a few weeks back, Paul from Nyren's of New England. I already knew what I wanted for the bridesmaid's bouquets but I didn't really know what I wanted for my bouquet or the boutonniere's or the flowers for our parents. Paul had some really great ideas and I can't wait to see the final outcome!

My bouquet will have white carnations and white stephanotis with black crystals pinned in the center of each stephanotis. Like this bouquet, but imagine stephanotis throughout:

The bridesmaids will have white carnation pomanders that they'll carry on a black satin ribbon. Similar to this:

The groom's boutonniere will be white stephanotis and seeded eucalyptus, exactly like this:

The groomsmen and the fathers will all have miniature carnation boutonnieres. Our mothers will each carry white peony bouquets, like this:


  1. Everything is beautiful! In such good taste!

  2. I was just google-ing peony bouquets, and came across the picture of your cream bouquet, and that's lovely! That's what I'm envisioning for my bridal bouquet this August. Good luck!

  3. i was also searching for delicate and beautiful flowers for my wedding and love the peonies for the mother's bouquet! Gorgeous choice of flowers!
