Offbeat Bride's Flickr Pool is too much fun! There are a lot of unusual weddings that aren't particularly my taste, although I appreciate them for how personal they are to each bride and groom. The photographs of the flowers are my favorites. Even for a more traditional and preppy gal like me, there are so many lovely ideas. I love the yellow poms and use of steel cans as vases below. My Mom is an amateur florist, so she will be making my arrangements, and we are definitely going to borrow the can idea for our tiny outdoor wedding.
The flowers below are crepe paper. I love them! At a thrift store a couple of miles from my house I found an book entirely dedicated to making paper flowers, so when I have a bit of free time I'm going to get crafty and try to make some. As a child living in San Diego, every few months we would go to Old Town (like a Little Mexico) and my sister and I each brought home a giant crepe paper flower as a souvenir. I kept my paper flower arrangement until I was in my teens and they were just too dusty and impossible to clean, and getting pretty tattered. I miss them. I still remember exactly what they looked like.
