I’m using them too, but I’m making my own bouquets.  I’m getting a practice bunch next week so that I can play with them and see how many I’ll need. 

18 sounds like a lot but I’ve noticed that some of the "larger" flowers tend to be a bit narrow so maybe they need more of them.

I am having mini callas I will be using probably around that many (my BM will be having 12 in theirs I know) and I also will be having ivory roses in mine – I want a REALLY big bouquet for some odd reason though.

If you are using regular callas that might be HUGE if you have 18. The stems are so large and thick that it might make it a whopping 2 hander!

I’m using callalillies. Not sure which colors yet but i don’t think 18 is too many.It really just depends on how big/small you wnat your bouquet to be.

Ohh, well if they are minis then I think 18 sounds about right.

  Colored callas are always mini. The big ones only come in white. I don’t think 18 sounds like a high number. They tend to make a pretty small bouquet otherwise.

I am also using mini orange calas and my florist is using 20 in my bouquet.  I want my BM’s bouquets to be smaller versions of mine so she will use 10-12.   I think 18 is a great number.

Oooh I’m using orange calla lillies too! I didn’t think that only the whte ones come in the full size… I was a BM a few years back and the BMs carried three orange calla lillies and I’m pretty sure they were full size, unless what is considered "mini" isn’t all that small. Weird. I’m gonna need to get to the bottom of this now.

Yeah that picture does have way more than 18… I would ask her about more lillies. But it sounds beautiful!
