Throwback Thursday: Sunflower Wedding Bouquets

Hi Guys! Happy, Happy Thursday! You have no idea what a great mood I’m in right now, because it’s literally Friday Eve. I CAN NOT wait for the weekend simply because it’s been a marathon of a week and I’m ready for some R&R.

Today, is another Vintage Savannah Said It post! If you’ve been with me from the beginning, you know that on Wednesdays, I talked about planning your wedding! I’ve since retired Wedding Wednesdays, but when the opportunity to work with some really great companies come about, I like to pull it out of retirement!

Also, can I just say it actually feels like Fall here today?! It’s so chilly outside. I’m loving it! Speaking of Fall…

It’s about that time, friends. The time when all the Fall weddings start to happen. The end of September and into October is PRIME time for Fall weddings. Why? Because the weather is still nice-ish (at least here in Michigan) the trees are starting to change colors, and Fall is in full swing. I adore Fall weddings. I think they are so beautiful! And if I hadn’t always wanted a June wedding, I’d have hopped on that Fall Wedding train so hard.


Of all the things I love about Fall weddings (the coziness, the darker colors and the stunning Fall foliage backdrops) my favorite thing is the Fall Florals. One thing you might not know about me is that I really love sunflowers! Case in point:


We drove an hour out of our way just to see a field of sunflowers a few years back.

So when my friends at FTD Florals reached out to me to share these STUNNING Fall Bouquets I was thrilled! I mean… look how pretty!


Okay, side story before I get into this post. I decided to try to recreate this gorgeous bouquet for you this week. I bought Sunflowers and Eucalyptus and Greens at Trader Joes and I put them in a vase. And then I went to take the picture are they were already dead! OMG guys. I FORGOT TO PUT WATER IN THE VASE.

Me. With every plant and bouquet I’ve ever owned.

Anyways, choosing your wedding flowers is a HUGE deal. Not only because florals eat up a big chunk of your budget, but because they are everywhere on your big day. From the bouquet in your hand, to the tables you eat off of and everywhere in between, flowers give that extra little “something” to your day. Not only do they match your wedding colors and theme (unless you go themeless like I did) but they also reflect you. For example… my Wedding Flowers looked like this.






Did you expect anything less than white and neutral from the girl who makes a Fall Wreath that looks like this? HAHA


(Have you seen how I made this wreath for less than $15?! If not, click here!) 

But if I’d have had a Fall Wedding? You can BET my wedding would have been brimming with sunflowers. Did you know sunflowers symbolize adoration, loyalty and strength? Talk about a perfect wedding flower.

And for all you soon to be brides out there thinking “but won’t a bunch of sunflowers look v. rustic?” don’t worry. FTD has you covered. They’re laying out exactly what flowers you need to turn sunflowers into the fall equivalent of the peony.


So pretty… right?!
