Our style.
Brian and I want our wedding day to be romantic and classy with a beachy vibe. Now that we met with florists, we have a better understanding of how flowers make the wedding day even more magical.

The flowers.
Honestly, from the beginning, I have not been focused on flowers until I began meeting with florists. My mother joined me for the meetings because Brian was not overly enthused about flowers. My color palette is soft yellow, pale pink and white with maybe a few blueish succulents and some dusty miller as well. I think our flower choice will go wonderfully with our bridesmaids’ dresses!

The ceremony and reception.
Will hopefully be (fingers crossed) at the King Park gazebo in Newport and will not need a lot of flowers since it is outdoors. I won’t give too much away but there will be some simple flowers at the ceremony. We are using the Marriott’s ballroom as our reception site, which is currently undergoing renovation and I am so anxious to see the results!! The colors that the Marriott interior designers chose are beautiful and will complement our theme.


The (b-word).
It has been very difficult to stay within budget for the flowers because there are other parts of our wedding that we allocated more money to… but we were able to make it work with the florist!

The details.
In addition to the bouquets, our grandmothers will have classic and simple corsages and all of the men will wear traditional boutonnieres.

Tuxedo shopping.
Is on our agenda for this weekend! We know the color we want and the style (dark blue slim fit). I am hoping to convince Brian that the bow-tie is in! We will soon see 🙂

Love is in the air,
