Flower Conumdrum

We met with a possible florist last night, and I realized I don’t really know what I want in terms of flowers. 

I need help. 

She brought me a bouquet (ill post a pic later) and it was red roses with white berries tied with black ribbon.  I liked the size, but she and Brendan agreed it was too big for me.  Boo Hoo.  I guess people do sometimes notice I’m 5 feet tall.

I told her I preferred all red, with no accents.  But then she wanted to know what color ribbon I wanted!  I don’t know!  I didn’t like the black though.  She also brought a book of flowers and kept asking me what kind of flowers I wanted.  Red.  That’s all I care about.

I don’t love the red ribbon here, either.

And either a white or chocolate brown ribbon?  The James has chocolate brown linens.  Help me!

  1. My florist recommend white ribbon for me and black for the bridemaids. (to match our dresses) At the time I didn’t think much about it, but I am glad that it matched our dresses because the pictures turned out nice and the main focus was on the flowers. (the ribbon just blended into the dresses)

  2. i totally don’t know anything about flowers.

    but those one flowers in the first bouquet w/ the roses – my friend used those for her bridesmaid bouquets. just those, and they were awesome.

    good luck – i just told the florist what i wanted and what i wanted to spend and she did the rest. it wasn’t exactly like i imagined, but i still really loved how it turned out.

  3. I really like the first picture.
    And, could you just have green ribbon so you don’t really notice it? I know nothing about these things!
    I also think a dark brown would be nice.
