personal personals





I recently realized that people (florists mainly I guess) refer to the bride's bouquet, corsages and boutonnieres as "Personals." Here are the personals for this weekend's wedding. I'm just going to say I don't like the word "Personals" because it reminds me of "personal care products" or "personal care needs" or anything else having to do a bit too much with hygiene....jus' sayin.

i know!!!! what else should we call it? i don't care for the bridal party either-cause then it leaves out the bout's for the dad's and such.

How about 'individual' flowers....does that sound better? Otherwise you'd have to go with 'privates' and thats even worse!

And....these were worth waiting for.
I love the touches of lavender in there...

Our shop uses the term body flowers--anytime I've attended a continuing ed class this is the term used.- it sometimes freaks out the bride but we know what we're talking about... The bouquets you posted look FAB! just the kind of fleurs I love to work with- great minds think alike love the scabiosa pods
