Even young Royals…

like it simplequietmodern. Well, relatively. I’d like to think Prince Harry got the idea to gather a handful of blooms for his bride, from the family garden at Kensington, right here in an earlier post. While he did have some help tying it all together, his selection of astilbe, jasmine, lily of the valley, sweet pea, forget me not and myrtle struck the perfect note.

Happily Ever After

The perfect accessory to her choice of gown and a simple exchange of ” I do’s ” witnessed by family in an intimate setting, lakeside, in the Georgia countryside. Southern Magnolia, Pepperberry, Tallowberry, Silverbell Eucalyptus buds, Bittersweet vine and Privet…grouped, gathered and hand tied…stems bound in burlap and charcoal satin. Perfect. Then carefully boxed and flown from North to South with a big hug for the big day…today. Ready everyone? Here comes the bride.

Isn’t it romantic?

OK guys…here’s a plan for ya. You’ve popped the question right? And, now you’re in the middle of a year long drama of planning your wedding celebration. I know. It’s seeming like a let down and you haven’t even selected the venue. One word for you…elope. You heard me right. Presenting the idea to your bride will go down a lot easier if it comes along with a gift for her to wear to city hall…like the best bridal shoe ever. And, a simplequietmodern bouquet that you’ve gathered and made yourself will put it over the top.



What could be more modern than this Betsey Johnson number in Black? http://www.betseyjohnson.com/Item.aspx?id=98536&np=ListSearch&sp=gown



 A quick tied gathering of  lily of the valley will provide a lifelong memory.

Then off to an elegant  lunch and a glass of champagne as you start your new life together…and come up with a plan to break the  good news.
