Pre-engagement, I never thought about flowers. Never.
I had the occasional hmm, those flowers are pretty when I was on campus or in the park. But I never had a “favorite” flower I wanted on Valentine’s Day (I prefer chocolate), and I definitely didn’t know names of flowers.
Post-engagement? I’m obsessed!
I love looking at them, I love figuring out what their names are (and realizing I can’t pronounce them to save my life), and I love figuring out what colors they come in.
I think the coolest part about flowers is their ability to brighten someone’s day. Something about the smell puts me in a peaceful place. This week’s give back suggestion encourages you to share the power of flowers and brighten someone’s day: Donate your wedding flower arrangements to local hospices or nursing homes following the wedding.
