you got dahlias (the purple flowers), the green stalky ones are the bulbs of the orchids, the pink may be garden roses or some sort type of rose.  I can’t tell what the white blob..but the filler flower is maybe baby’s breathe?..and i don’t really know the name for the rest…Hope someone else might help you ID the others.

I see roses (pink) and a few Dhalias (deep purple), I think?  The waxy looking green tendrils look like they might be orchids but that haven’t budded yet?  Not sure about the rest…

Good luck!  Maybe show it to a florist and they can help you?  And/or, if any of the selections end up being too pricey or out of season, they can suggest cheaper but similar alternatives?

I think I see a purple orchid to the left of the purple dahlia on the left. I could be wrong though. But the lighter part looks like it could be the lip on a phalaenopsis orchid. So, those green buds probably are orchids as previously posted. Orchids tend to be very expensive, but like the other poster said, they can use cheaper alternatives.  Love the white Veronica and the Dahlias. It gives it a nice natural wild look. I’m using Dahlia’s as well.

I’m thinking the pink are fully open sweetheart roses. It’s beautiful!

  1. dendrobium stems w/no blooms – stalks only (not expensive – from thailand)
  2. white veronica
  3. purple dahlias
  4. two circular white blooms – out of focus so i can’t tell – ranunculas
  5. pink spray roses (i believe the variety is called evelyn but i can’t remember)
  6. white flower – it’s either a variety of sapponaria from mexico/central america or
  7. it could be a miniature version or dwarf version of white sweet william (if you can’t find this white scabiosa is easier to work with and has the same kind of texture)

no lisianthus in this bouquet.

 

Darling choice! 🙂
