This was my first wedding cake. I didn't do the flowers. I also knew the florist and thought we were on the same page but, I really was not happy with the final outcome of the flowers. My hat is off to people that do wedding cakes all of the time. I thought it was very stressful and was convinced to do this for my best friends wedding. I also depended on someone else to take the pictures and I don't think she got a really good shot of that either. Live and learn I suppose.
