Hello WeddingWire friends,
I need a minute to vent. I have next to no experience with flowers. We're trying to find just bridal bouquet, bridesmaids bouquets, wrist corsages, boutonnières, and some flowers for our cake. No decor.
And I would never have thought of myself as picky about flowers, but I must be because I have spent hours upon hours, day after day, looking through Pinterest and Instagram and Google image search and I feel like my eyes are going to fall out and I still only have a couple pictures of what I like!
90% of what I see seems to be pure white, completely pastel, vintage, single color roses, or super boho - none of which is my style. Show me color! Some variety! Something traditional and romantic that isn't monochrome!!!
I tried talking to florists and they don't want to meet in person, they don't have real flowers in their studio (except for whatever wedding is immediately taking place), and they shut me down when I suggest meeting telling me to go back to Pinterest /cry.
The whole process has become miserable for me and just makes me feel drained and sad. I can't stand staring at any more pictures of digital flowers - I am so sick to death of it. I've tried going to grocery stores and flower shops, but there's just a tiny amount on display (again, pretty much all one color).
Is anyone else experiencing this frustration?
