Anyone recognize what is in this “bouquet”? OR can anyone suggest purple flowers for my bouquet? My Bridesmaid or Best Man are having baby’s breath, my centerpieces are dyed orchids (but I don’t want orchids for my bouquet). I have an enchanted forest theme.

When I met with my florist I didn’t realize all the different flowers I’d never heard of and all the different colors flowers come in. I brought a lot of pictures that I liked but I didn’t know what were in them either. If your florist is knowledgable than she’ll be able to tell from the picture. At lot of times I’d point to a picture and say “I really like this but I don’t know what it is” and she’d say “Oh that’s …..”.
My florist brought out about 6 books for me to go through with her and a couple were of colors and then listed each flower that would come in that color. I was SOOO impressed with her.
If I were you I’d bring these pictures and your ideas to a florist and have her help you come up with bouquets that match your vision. Even if all you need from her is your bouquet, I think its worth it. To me other than my dress my bouquet was the next most important thing.

Lisianthus is a relatively inexpensive, long lasting flower that comes in a really deep purple.
Otherwise it looks like that bouquet is 90% orchids -there are some Lady slipper orchids on the left side, some pink phalenopsis in the middle, and perhaps vandas and dendrobiums. I THINK the large ones glued to the branches are fake dendrobiums (the middle part doesn’t have the right “bits”) -at the very least the flowers are dyed.
The leaves on the outside look like a kind of brightly coloured coleus maybe? I think there are dark cala lillies in there too, but the pic is kinda small.
