I love my florist - Leslie from Whimsical Welcomes. She has such great and different ideas and will work with all budgets. If you're looking for a really creative and helpful florist check out her Wedding Flower Show and Cocktail Party at Bolingbroke Mansion on July 21st from 5:00 - 7:00 PM. She'll be displaying centerpieces, ceremony flowers, and cocktail table flowers. She was giving at really nice discount for new brides at the last show she did so maybe she'll do it again. She'll talk about budgeting for flowers and give you lots of ideas. Someone is also talking about matching wine and cheese and there will be lots of samples. Jennifer Childress Photography will be there too. There is more information at Leslie's website WhimsicalWelcomes.com and you can register there. She also has tons of pictures on her blog. She's really worth talking to.
