We have seen all types from flowers freshly purchased at a farmer’s market to those purchased from a florist to dried arrangements purchased online to silk floral arrangements designed by the mother of the groom, We have seen flowers delivered in florists’ vans, we have seen long-stemmed freshly cut flowers magically assembled into bouquets and boutonnieres by talented friends and family, and we have seen unopened boxes shipped from out of state opened on the wedding day for the first glimpse at the bouquets.
