    Great Pictures!

    I'm planning my wedding and wasn't sure what flowers I wanted. This book helped me to narrow down what i liked and provided enough pictures to show the florist what I wanted. The down-side is that it is supposed to be geared towards do it yourself-ers but it doesn't show you HOW to do anything. It's like you should be able to make these beautiful creations from just a picture. Sorry, I'm not that good. It may be better in a magazine format so you can tear out what you want to show a professional florist.
