there were two things i was certain of when i got engaged
the guy i was going to marry
and that there would be mason jars at my wedding
lots of them
everything else seemed to fall into place
around all the mason jars of course
...and then came baby...

friend of the farmer: going straight to the source for your wedding day flowers

{photos via afterglow photos llc}

my father started a farmers market in our small new england town a couple years ago. as a side note, i highly recommend any go-getters out there to do the same in your small (or big!) town. back to my point, one particular farmer grew gorgeous wildflowers, the kind i had always envisioned at my wedding. it was a no brainer really. we didn't do a run through or any fancy table setting previews. i simply gave her the mason jars i had been hoarding and she showed up the day of with gorgeous arrangements.

go straight to the source, it will save you money and you'll have a much more personal experience.

check out the blog & beautiful work of windham gardens (especially you new englanders!)

Would you be able to tell me this location?? If it's near NYC I might camp there until my wedding.

I have 16 really good girlfriends (including three sisters). I want a small wedding party. How do I pick the lucky three or four?
