My lovely stepdaughter has asked me to do the flowers for her mid-May 2011 wedding. And we are wanting to save money! I'm a little scared to do her bouquet (general bouquet-making knowledge is limited) but love thinking about table arrangements and larger arrangements. I'm hoping to use blossoming branches from shrubs and trees: apples, viburnums, lilacs. Anyone have a guess about what trees and shrubs will be blooming in mid-May on the north coast of Boston? Or just any advice at all about depending on Mother Nature to cooperate in this way? Or any advice about wedding flowers in general? Thank you.
