Let's do a Stargazer Wedding

Let's have a OUTDOOR Stargazer wedding !
April 21st my youngest son and his lovely fiancee is getting married. 
As this blog was originally started to tell what I was doing with flowers & my family ... I thought I'd share this experience too.
They asked me to take care of the flowers... OMG , they want me to arrange flowers , I am the one who smashes them !


Then after looking at many wonderful silk arrangements . I was told , I really want real not fake ,as my sweet brown eyed son says!

Real flowers ,she is sure about stargazer lilies ,but we had to decide on the rest .
 Colors... Hot Pink / Black / Blue (  near country blue)
It is going to be outdoors , Weather willing , or in the reception hall if bad weather . Lord forbid. 


 I found this neat video at http://www.haysflorist.com/stargazer-lily-bridal-bouquets/

 Here is a set of silk wedding flowers ,gives an idea of what flowers we will need.
You will receive bride bouquet as pictured with stargazer lilies. 1 maid of honor arm bouquet, 3 bridesmaids arm bouquet, 1 groom boutonniere, 1 bestman, 3 groomsmens,  2 fathers, 1 ring bearer and 3 boutonnieres you can use for grand father or ushers. 2 mother's corsage and 4 smaller one you can use for grand mothers or sister's and you will receive one toss bouquet
