@Ms.Pink: I’m growing my own flowers, calla lillies, dahlias, and other different types. Sorry I can’t really help with the Florida flowers since I’m not from there, but I’m also having a fall wedding and I’m really excited about doing this to save some money, cuz I’m broke hihi…

You might consider a flowering bush or shrub of some kind, because they will produce many blooms. I’m thinking of gardenias, roses, azalea, hydrangea, lilac, camellias, etc. I don’t know for sure what blooms in Florida . . . maybe hibiscus?

Good luck!

@babylou: hibiscus blooms only last one day.

@Ms.Pink: you need more than a garden to grow a weddings worth of flowers, a bouquet … maybe.  But flowers should all be at the same stage in their bloom if your using them for design.  This kind of consistensy is difficult in a small garden.
