Quiz: What's Your Wedding Floral Style?


When I got married, I didn't think about a wedding style. A floral style. Or any kind of any style of anything ;-). I just picked what I thought was pretty. And inexpensive. We had no money when we got married. In fact, when we came home from our honeymoon, we had twenty bucks to our names.

Yes, we were young and crazy and IN LOVE. :-)

And eighteen years later, we're still together and just a bit smarter, but still in love :-).

Nowadays, though, the buzz is about style. What's your wedding style? Your dress? Your flowers? There's even a quiz. :-) So I took the quiz and thought you all might want to take it too!

My answer, BTW:

60% Simple Style: Your dream wedding includes several traditional elements updated with your own sense of style. A simple bouquet can be classic or modern, embellished with a few accent flowers, or clean and minimal. The intrinsic beauty of flowers shines in simple-style bouquets. Picture a posy of barely open roses, an armful of calla lilies, a handful of creamy-white tulips dotted with a few sprigs of chartreuse lady's-mantle, or a single orchid. Simple is the perfect word for summing up the centerpieces that you love. Often monochromatic, your favorite centerpieces are arranged in geometric, unadorned containers. Their clean lines and refined color palette make a dramatic statement. Top your tables with a glass cube packed with pink roses or a simple cylinder brimming with white calla lilies or stems of delicate pastel orchids.

That explains my heroine in Sweetheart Lost and Found! Clearly we think alike! :-)

60% Romantic Style
Fragrant, petal-packed flowers capture your heart. Romantic-style bouquets are lush with blossoms and often sweetly scented. Think floral abundance when envisioning your bouquet. Complement the blossoms with light and airy greenery and sprigs of berries. Large round bouquets and cascading arrangements are both perfect fits for your style. Flowers that are sure to please your romantic ways include garden roses, peonies, lilies-of-the-valley, orchids, and sweet peas.

Romantic centerpieces overflow with blossoms. Tuck your luxurious arrangements into ornate containers such as stone urns, crystal vases, and silver compotes. Be sure to include flowers that will spill over the edge and sprinkle extra blossoms on the tabletop.

I think Serena would be something different, but I could be wrong. I'll have to let her take the quiz!

Shirley, you guys look so good together. You know I don't think most couples start out with much money. I know we bought a very small house before we got married so we didn't have any money when we got married. We had a place to live but no money. We still live in that house, but we had to add on and make it a larger house. Still small but a lot better then it was when we started out.
