Wedding flowers planning

A few questions.

Where  and when is the wedding? Colour scheme.?

Do you need table decorations, bouquets, buttonholes, hair decorations for flower girls or what?

I can't get any connection out of that link

The book people have a number of books on wedding flowers.

    Dried delphinium petals make lovely  biodegradable confetti.

    Charity shops have  vases for one or two pounds each.  Jam jars of sweet peas on each table are lovely.

     Because of the vagaries of the weather, for a specific date you have to plant a series of the same flowers to stagger the harvest dates. Last year I planted gladioli in April May and June 1st, to get cut flowers for October 10th. It meant I had excess gladioli, cutting from July all the way through to October.

    This year I promised sweet peas for someone for mid July. Previous five years, it would have been a no brainer. This year, we made it, but it was a close run thing because of the cold wet May and June we had.
