There are a few good floral books at barnes & noble. Go to the bridal section and check them out. There is a series called "simply" weddings, florals, etc. and they have some gorgeous pics as well.

As far as magazines, I’m totally addicted to wedding mags… it is BAD. and expensive. I buy every new issue I see. It is a BAD addiction. There is a magazine called "bride & bloom" and they do tons of floral. I actually saw a type of centerpiece/vase in that mag before I did in Modern Bride.
I say go buy up as many mags as you can find (bookstores have the largest selections, followed by walmart and target), tear out pages with the flowers you like (and ones you hate too) and create a folder or binder (if you already don’t have one) with your likes and your dislikes. This way you can show them what you LOVE and what you absolutely dispise.  
Grab a few UK mags as well, because some of the things in those mags are very fresh and some are things just not done here in the states right now.

Also check out Michael’s or a craft store. They have lots of informative books and you could get ideas from those.

Do you have a flower in mind or colors that you want to stick too?  Maybe us reading bee readers can send you pics of stuff we have used for our weddings or have found.
