@lilarose:  Carnations would look nice. They would have the same effect as roses once they are all grouped together. Significantly cheaper, too, I think.

Baby’s breath could work … maybe mixed in with something else?

What about some type of vine, like ivy? And would it have to be real flowers?

@LilacViolet:  Yes I second that carnations would give the rose look without the rose cost and you can get them in so many colors!

Peonies? Hydrangeas? Mixed with vines and baby’s breath would look great.

i think carnations and baby’s breath combined could work, you can offset the cost of the carnations by using some baby’s breath, plus i think it would look magical with both blended

Hydrangea. Peonies would be beautiful but they are usually more expensive than roses. Hydrangea are pretty inexpensive.

Have you thought about silk flowers? I bought calla lily garland at a craft store- looked better than I thought. No one was up close enough to be able to tell- the orange lillies were real. All the garland cost around $20 (USD) on sale.

How does the arch look with just tulle?

Around April, lillies should be fairly inexpensive. 

I’m heavy on the lillies for my warch wedding

@Luayne:  Peonies are cuh-razy expensive if bought outside of their peak season, which April happens to be, especially in New Zealand.  

I think baby’s breath could be reaally nice, and definitely inexpensive.  April is mid fall in NZ, right?

I think Hydrangea would look lovely and some drapey greenery…


We had some bare branches we used for an arch and our florist used those and I think it was really pretty.

Make a garland with ivy, wrap a lot of ribbon, then add bows the last thing flowers, silk would be less expensive. I can send you a pic. of one I made for a Bride in Alaska.
