I have always been partial to the softer, pastel colors over their brighter, richer relatives. So when I met with florist to design my bridal bouquet many years ago, I knew I wanted a lush, frilly bouquet of pink and white.
“That’s very traditional,” the florist said. “Most young ladies your age want something brighter, more modern.”
“I have often thought I was born in the wrong century, so please find the softest baby pinks and muted whites you can!” I replied.
The soft-hued, delicate pinks and whites of these azaleas, bridal bush, and other spring bloomers bring back memories of that day and that “old-fashioned” bouquet.
