A rose by any other name...

So, we picked our wedding flowers!

I'm really enjoying Mike and my snap decision making during this whole wedding planning process.  For people who have a really hard time deciding what movie to watch and what to eat for dinner we are rock stars at choosing stuff for our wedding!

The other day, we walked into Walmart, (because we live in a town with no Target so it's not shameful), and I had the brilliant idea to check out the gardening section to look at all of the yellow flowers for inspiration.  After a couple of minutes we came across these:

The yellow ranunculus!  I was immediately drawn to the look of them.  I love that they are so delicate looking and kind of different, not totally traditional.  I keep describing them to people that they look like roses made of paper.  Mike loves them because he thinks the name sounds like redonkulous.  He's great.  

So I started googling wedding bouquets made out of these gorge yellow redonkulouses and found some really good inspiration.

So yes, we found our wedding flowers by walking into a Walmart and picking something that was for sale for like five bucks, but I'm still pretty excited about it.  

Any good florists in Northern CA have ideas???
