The Dahlia Lama

October 26, 2010

The Dalai Lama was in Atlanta recently. That’s a pretty big deal. Dahlias are, too. Hence my post title. Ahem. Anyway.

I think I might have mentioned my wedding dress, right? I can’t be positive, but I’m pretty sure I did (joking, joking). Reminder: the style by Amsale is called “Dahlia,” and after I bought it, I looked up dahlias to see what they were like. It turns out they’re AWESOME. They’re big, bold and colorful—a.k.a. perfect for our wedding! I checked in with our florist (a friend of my mom’s—Bill at De Vars-Phillips Florists & Antiques), and he said that dahlias were both affordable and available in July. Oh, hey, guess what our Official Wedding Flower is? Yes!

Please, let me enthrall you with some dahlia images.

Looooove theeeeem. Don’t you kind of want to stuff this next bouquet in your mouth?:

OK, OK, I’ll stop. I’m a just a little bit obsessed, in case you can’t tell.

Anyone else have an official wedding flower? How did you choose it?
