This is a re-post. Somehow last week's post had a few glitches, so here is a new, edited version to enjoy - and link to Jill's Kitchn wedding cake post - and a photo of the handsome couple!More than just an important arrangement - THE important arrangement. And Jill decided to do it herself (along with everything from her wedding!) and have her sister find some simple field flowers for her to arrange. She turned to the greenmarket for inspiration and came away with these daisies and wheat. Has anyone else out there done their own bouquet for the big day? If so, how did it go? See more from Jill and a host of others that sent in their flowers to share after the jump!

From Phuong in Baltimore (two photos above):
"I recently moved away from a city I was in love with (Philadelphia) to Baltimore (it's not bad so far, just not quite in love with it yet), and discovering the local weekend markets and hence, all of the wonderful flower stands, are my guaranteed pick-me-up. I love that for around $5 I can quickly add a bit of cheer to my living room/bathroom/wherever I happen to have a funny glass container. I love getting farmer's market flowers so much that I just started a flickr set to showcase the weekly variety. This week I found a snapdragon bouquet for $4!"
From Ana in Brooklyn (two photos above):
"It's a bunch of daisies for $5 that I got from one of my favorite vendors. I wasn't planning on buying anything wiltable today, due to the near-90-degree heat, but I couldn't resist when I spotted these fresh yellow and white faces beckoning me. I arranged them on my dining table simply, in a sea-green vase, and saved any broken stems to float in a small Japanese teacup, perched on the edge of my bathtub, so the whole apartment gets the light, summery feel. No matter how sophisticated you think you are (or how long you've lived in NYC), you can't not smile when you see daisies."matt at apartment therapy dot com
