I have a newfound love for carnations.  While we were at our florist making our final payment for our wedding flowers I saw a bunch of bouquets with PURPLE carnations!  Purple is my favorite colour and I didn’t know that carnations came in purple.  They had both light and dark shades.  Naturally, I took home a bouquet that had them in it :).

I thought I hated carns but then found a bouquet I loved for my BMs, when I showed my florist she immediately told me that they were purple carns – I’m in love.  Of course the purple ones cost about the same as roses but I don’t care, they’re the perfect colour, I have a new appreciation for what so many think is a filler flower!

I’m definitely using carnations in my wedding. they have a bad rap as being cheap but I think they look fantastic in big bunches!!! Beautiful arrangements OP!

I love carnations! They’re so fluffy and pretty (: We’re mainly just using carnations to decorate our tented ceremony and reception space. We’re having everything outdoors and they’ll stand up really well to the weather!
