We had an outdoor wedding at the Summer House of my husband's family. The ceremony was right on the bay and the reception was on the lawn outside the house. It certainly is not formal so I wanted my flower arrangements to be simple. I also wanted to save money. I was able to purchase blue & white teapots for under $5 each and then ordered wholesale flowers and did the arrangements myself. I asked my local florist to make up a sample arrangement for me which I then copied. My florist was very helpful in telling me how to prepare the flowers (especially the hydrangeas) so they would last in the teapots. I was very pleased with the results.
