I had another meeting with the florist this week, which has left me thinking about the church flowers (we found out that our church does not do flowers on the weekends of weddings, as they have been let down before) and specifically what flowers to put in the porch. I think this picture maybe problem solved! isn't it beautiful?
My florist actually seems to be trying to save us money, she keeps downsizing my plans! I had gone to her with the thought of a small arrangement on the little table sitting in the porch, and she suggested another vase of gyp instead to tie in with my theme inside the church itself, but we are also considering an informal welcome line in the porch after the service, and I was worried about the space in there, so hanging a wreath instead may sort that out for us too!
