I was also thinking about the funny ledges the church has in front of its windows. They've put them there to make window ledges, and quite deep ones at that. I've seen them with floral arrangements on before, so I know they dont mind having them put there. My mind started wandering, as it does, and it reminded me of this:

(sorry I can't be more exact, I saved the direct link to the photo, not the wedding it came from)
It was Zoe Lingards post about gypsophilia that made me think about it seriously, until then to me it was just the filler flower that came with supermarket bouquets. Then I started thinking about how lacy and light it was, and best of all cheap! I don't want it everywhere, While I think these weddings are lovely, mine is not to be outdoors and in the middle of summer. (Rather it will be very indoors in October in Cumbria - not a time for too much floatyness) But I think maybe it would look ok in vases or jars on the windows in the church? like this, but gypsophilia rather than alchemilla - which incidentally is really good alternative if you're doing a modern green colour scheme that seems to be everywhere now...

plus its cheap. I really dont have a problem with flowers, just so you know, I love them. they make me smile and spend money i dont have. I also think churches look amazing decorated with floral arrangments, I'm just really not prepared to spend a ton of money on things that only get seen for an hour.
Finally, to tie it all in, I love this bouquet ( I also love the dress, buts thats a whole other post right there), I love the big headed roses, the tight posy, with uneven edges, and i love love love the border of gyposphilia, if thats what it is. Its certainly what I choose to see, and the inspiration I'm taking from it.
