So, you all know that a few weeks ago, I announced that Intrigue Design & Decor would be doing my flowers for the renewal. Well, I have to admit that Sarah (from Intrigue) and I have been sending back and forth pictures over email, Facebook and pinning like crazy! So, when Sarah asked me to lunch to “start talking about the flowers and decor” for the renewal, I was so excited. I know we’ll probably continue the amazing discussion we started at every bridal show, in every email and even during late night pinning sessions, but I know my flowers and everything else decor related will be awesome!!
I showed Sarah the types of flowers I liked — ranunculus, english garden roses and grey hued greenery. I wanted a lush look but no high centerpieces or hanging florals. We also discussed using a lot of different pink colors — darks, lights and even soft peaches — in the flowers. I also told her what I didn’t want — mason jars, vintage cans or suitcases! I also have been hesitant to put a “theme” to the renewal. But, when I told Sarah we were incorporating books and stories into everything — we decided to call it “Storybook”!
We touched on ideas for a lot of other decor too…like, the amazing ombre aisle, perhaps a ribbon wall behind where the ceremony will take place, hanging books, strung lights, grey patterned linens and even ghost chairs!! (For those of you who don’t know what a ghost chair is — I didn’t know — it’s the clear ones!)
I could keep rambling on and on about this meeting with Sarah. It was fun, exciting, filled with laughs and lasted way longer than we thought it would! Just a tip for brides, come armed with ideas, but also be open to what the “experts” offer up to you also. I know that Sarah and Melissa are amazing at what they do, so I’ll share my ideas and know that I will be utterly speechless on the day of the renewal. I’m really looking forward to that moment!!!!
