So my flowers will be a total DIY project the week of. I originally wanted a cute little bouquet of white carnations (yes, carnations!) but now I’m dreaming of tuberoses. They smell FANTASTIC! My Google searching has come up with minimal results for straight tuberose bouquets…
Do you think if I threw in some white calla lilies and maybe *maybe* a handful of the white carnations that would look okay? Maybe white roses?

i think it is like the game set. Have you ever played it? Things need to be all the same or all diferent for every aspect. So all one color or lots of color, all one texture or lots of texture, all one size or lots of sizes. It is a good rule for matching, to have one element in common and have all the rest (more than 2) different. Go monochrome and you can’t go wrong!

When in doubt, try it out!
For DIY you have to do a few practice runs anyway, so why not just go get some flowers and try it out. You can just make a bouquet- take a picture- then disassemble it and try again with the same flowers.
Be sure to post the results, because if you are wondering about this, there are probably other brides out there with the same question!

From having delt with tuberroses, they don’t last long. As well some can find the smell overpowering. I would suggest using freshia instead. They smell great and are cheaper. Throw in some roses, or carnations and spray roses with white white astilbe and you have a pretty soft looking white bouquet

I luv the idea of carnations! I think that if all else fails, a bouquet of carnations with whatever else you want to throw in there will be lovely!
