Wedding Flowers

I decided to be difficult when it came to my flowers; I did not want roses, or anything really extravagant or fancy; I prefer wildflowers, daisies, sunflowers, etc. Our florist, Mary B.'s, was really helpful, though, and very easy to work with. The bridesmaids had small bouquets of white Gerbera daisies; the flower girl (aged two years and three months) carried a single white Gerbera daisy. My bouquet was Virginia alstroemeria, and the groomsmen and Ed had matching boutonnieres of a single flower bud.  

We also kept the centerpieces simple: It included sunflowers (in different shades of yellow), spray roses (red or orange red), Alaska Shasta daisies, hydrangeas, and one or two others whose names I don't know. Each centerpiece had the same set of flowers, arranged slightly differently, and in different colors, so there was some variation. The Hotel Bethlehem put each centerpiece on a glass pane alongside and two lit tea candles. (The florist included simple glass vases that were one of two shapes, one rounder than the other, so they matched too, being part of a set.)
