This all started with an inspiration of a whimsical fairy woodland idea, and just went from there. The astilbe was going to make the perfect whimsical flower for this. After talking with some local florists about astilbe I was nervous about getting it and it lasting in August. Wedding day temperatures were ideal, 84 was the high with very little humidity, and for August in Missouri this is unheard of. Rachel wanted to make things easy for everyone with not much fuss, but I needed everything to be perfect for my girl... She would have it just as she wanted it. With the help of my sister Tisha and my Aunt Linda and several of the Bridesmaids and Groomsmen we made it perfect. She was so very happy with everything and the day was just perfect. Thank you Fifty Flowers for all of your help in getting things right and making the flower ordering a breeze. I have and will continue to refer people to you for their DIY projects.
