Ask your shower guests to gift you flowers #Decor DIY#Parties & Showers#flowers#steal-this-idea#wedding shower September 4 | Megan Finley meggyfin We've seen brides ask their guests to contribute to the building of a bridal bouquet, but Offbeat Bride reader Wendy took that a step further by having her friends and family help with all her wedding flowers. Much like the wine shower, this is how the "flower shower" worked: In lieu of gifts, I asked that my bridal shower guests bring me potted flowers. That way I could display them at the wedding, and then I could later plant them at our house. [The photo above] is just a small gathering of the ultimate collection!
