My friend is getting married on September 15th. She really, really wants a bouquet that has these elements in it:

Also French Lavender.
I offered to make her bouquet for her, as a gift and because otherwise, she wouldn’t be able to afford a real bouquet like the kind she wants.
Now, I’m finding this project to be a bit daunting. She is okay with French Tulips, either lavender colored or Deep Purple with ‘no reddish tint’ surrounded by Lavender. I just have no idea where to get started.
Any ideas, Bees? I just wanted to do something special, and this is turning into a confusing mess.

Did you look at a flower wholesale website?

How about something like this?

@ohmybears48: Thanks. I’ll show her that and she what she thinks. Her colors are Royal Blue and Purple, so this fits.
@redheadem: Yes, I have. The ones I’ve found have flowers in 80 count or 100 count. There is no way that I need that many flowers. I’ll need 20 of each at the most. I’ll keep looking though. Thanks.

Just so you know, tulips can be very difficult to work with as they droop really easily. They are also difficult to wire as they have the hollow stem.

@misscherrylimeade: Is she having bridesmaids? Could you use the extras for their bouquets? Or in the centerpieces for the reception?

@asscherlover: Yes, but only two of them and they’re carrying something other than flowers. My friend said what it was, but I don’t remember. Centerpieces may be a possibility, but I’d have to ask her.
@MsNarwhal: I’ve no experience with flowers, so this is very useful information. Thank you.
She was actually trying to make paper versions of Parrot Tulips and carry those, then I heard about it and was like “Dear, I’ll take care of the bouquet.”
We’ll see how this all goes.
