I don’t exactly have suggestions, because I’ve been more lucky with growing than anything else, but I have 3 fantastic rose bushes in my garden that I prune the heck out of in the fall, and they always bloom like mad all summer long, so I’m hoping this year is no exception and I can take roses from my own home to the wedding. I also have a massive lavendar bush that I plan to pluck a whole bunch of stalks from to incorporate.

In similar news, we are also using potted chrysanthemums for the wedding, and plan to plant hem in a couple different areas of the yard afterwards, so that we have a lving, growing memento of our wedding.

I’m attempting this and have a backup plan incase things fall through. English daisies are suppose to grow into fall and I’ve heard dahlias will. I’m. Gona grow both and I’ve ordered dried craspedia to mix in. I’m also growing succulents tomsee if I can throw those in somewhere.

My mom is planning on growing some of mine (we are also getting some from wholesale).  She has an amazing hydranga bush we are planning on using, also I am hopping that she got Daliahs, and she mentioned some other flowers she could plant.  We haven’t really discussed what she is planning on planting though.  Depending on where you live I suggest Daliahs though.  They can grow well in a pot and (at least where I live) should be blooming around your wedding day! And as long as you take care of the baulbs you get blooms ever year!

@AJester2:  ooooh hai!!! Are you talking about the little daisies? If so where are you getting the seeds from? I really want to do that but not sure if I can get them and grown them in 6 months….any advice/planning you can share would be appreciated!

My original plan was to grow my own flowers for the bouquets, etc… but we have decided to actually invest some money and have a professional do those. We are however growing the flowers to decorate the house and the hall. We booked the florist for the church and the bridal party flowers.

We will be planting Dahlias, Sunflowers, and Calla Lillies with many more. I can’t wait to see it all bloom this year.
