I did! Don't laugh, but I got all of my wedding flowers from the floral dept of a local grocery store two days before my wedding. It was Memorial Day weekend, and we planned to go that route all along (in my defense, they always had gorgeous flowers!). Ultimately, what I planned was to use daisies & lilacs from our yard. However, I found the most beautiful white roses at the store. I bought a dozen to use as my bouquet. I left the stems long and wrapped them tightly with a broad ribbon. I used a blue handkerchief of my grandmother's to make a bow on it--it was soooo pretty! I got more complements than you would believe. One friend even asked who did my bouquet so she could use them for her wedding! My dress was very non-traditional, and I think the bouquet complimented it really well. I'd look at magazines to see what sort of shape you like, and practice! I did practice w/ my daisies & lilacs, and I really liked what I came up with. But those roses were very, very special and lured me away.
As the arc of history bends towards justice, it's a new, more progressive day. --Steve Benen, The Maddow Blog, 11-07-12
