Roses, Hydrangeas, and Thistles.....

Or better known as my flowers! You may be wondering what a thistle is so let me tell you. A thistle is actually a type of weed, believe it or not, but more importantly it's the national emblem of Scotland. So in trying to keep this a nice well balanced Southern/Scottish Wedding we'll be including the prickly little suckers.
We're also having Ivory Roses and Ivory Hydrangeas.

My bouquet is going to be just the Roses and the Hydrangea kind of like the picture above and then the bridesmaids bouquets are going to have the Hydrangea and the Thistle. The groomsmen and ushers will have a Thistle boutonniere and Fiance is going to have a Thistle with a Rose, oh and the Mother's are going to have Roses with little bunches of purple Heather because Heather is supposed to be good luck according to Fiance. One more thing knocked off the list ya'll!
