    I am having quite a rustic theme, and I really would like to have wild flowers rather than roses or anything similar for my wedding. But I am not sure how to go about it, if I ask a florist for wild flowers, would that cost me just as much as getting professionally grown ones? I live in the Bournemouth area and there are not really any meadows nearby, there are by my venue but I am not sure I have time picking wild flowers myself on the day!

    Thanks :)

    I think that sounds like a lovely idea only thing being with wild flowers eg not farmed they dont last very long and if you have a hot day thety could wilt very quickly. have you thought about buying some rustic looking farmed flowers and having them in an unusual or less structured bouquet?

    My wedding is the 4th of July 2015, sadly I have like 1 window in a very dark apartment and no garden. I did contact a florist but she did not reply till now and just said she was fully booked! I would love to grow them myself, but no space and all my local friends are students so no chance there! Haha, might just go for dried flowers or artificial :)

    We're having like thrown together bouquets... Sunflowers,daisies,wheat etc ... Our florist did us a brilliant deal for everything because they'll be in season... Seasonal flowers are always cheaper. You can of course like others said do them yourself but I'm rubbish at anything like that and mine wouldn't all grow the same, so I've just left it up to the professionals x
