I am still recuperating after our crazy weekend, but wanted to post for those of you who haven't already seen Jessi's blog...
We started working on the rest of the wedding flowers at 8 am on Saturday morning. Things were going really well, we finished the final touches on the centerpieces, and the buffet table arrangments, and put together the brides and 3 bridesmaids' bouquets. It was about 12 when we decided to start on the 5 little wrist corsages. It did not go well. By 2:30 we were finally done the wrist corsages and were scrambling to put the final touches on the bouquets and try to pack everything for transport. We were running about 1/2 hr. late, which was still in plenty of time. We got to the wedding location, and set up, and the bride was totally thrilled. And, today the mother of the bride actually called me, just to gush over how happy they were with the flowers, and tell me that so many people asked about the flowers! So, all in all, I consider our first official job to be a success! And, now we know for the future - we need to charge more for wrist corsages! The one sad thing was that we were so flying around at the end, that we didn't have time to get pictures; but the wedding planner and the bride both said they'd email us some of theirs.
When we got home, there were quite a few flowers left over, so we threw together a couple arrangements - one for each of us, and one for my mom and other sister, who kept the kids for us. Here's some pics of those:
