Bride’s Diary: I Love Them All! How Do I Choose?!

Wedding Paper Divas is bursting with staff grooms and brides-to-be who are currently planning their weddings. We’re happy to share their stories with you as a part of this fun feature!

When I first started to “plan” my wedding a couple months ago, I knew that I wanted a “girly and vintage garden party” themed wedding. Pink was a must.

Simple enough, right? Pink. Not so much…

Now that I have been in touch with different florists, they have been asking me questions like, “what type of flowers do you want?” Or, “specifically, what shades of pink do you want in your bouquets?” “Do you want pink flowers mixed with other colors as well?” Good question! I have been scratching my head for the past couple weeks because I don’t know what shades of pink or what types of arrangements I want to do on the tables. Here are a couple of my inspirations:

Do I go with this pretty pastel palette of garden roses mixed with peonies and yellow roses…

There is always the choice of gorgeous all-pink displays with multiple bouquets as well:

Or a fabulously girly, yet sophisticated bouquet of white, light pink, dark pink and green…

And swooning over these perfectly pink peonies all in a row…

And then there is this image of pink, purple and yellow, which is exquisite too! Not to mention the touch of lace…

I could literally go on and on with inspirations. See my Pinterest account for proof!

I am learning towards the simplicity of the darker pink flowers in the second photo, but I’m not sure! Stay tuned to see what I choose—your guess is as good as mine!
