All of mine are fake. The main focus was the peony but I also have ranunculus, daisy, rose, carnations, magnolia, and hydrangea. I bought all of mine from craft stores and from Afloral.com (use promo code twitter for 10% off!).

I chose fakes because it’s cheaper, they don’t die, and the selection isn’t limited to what’s in season.

I checked our floral contract.  We have different types of orchids, mini-callas, different types of roses, lisianthus, mums, hydrangeas, and craspedia.

I am getting married at the end of October and am mainly using carnations for BM bouquets & centerpeices. But I’ve been wanting to get a pretty flower for my bouquet & am having the hardest time finding a white, fluffy flower (besides a carnation) that is available to buy direct since I will be DIY my own bouquet….fustrating 😉

I really wanted callas but I was told they’re super expensive in November…I might just get fakes. A couple florists I’ve talked to say you can get just about anything but of course if you’re getting it from far away it costs a fortune.

Apparently labrador and I have the same plan!  Smile

I’m using everything she is (and for the same reasons)

My colors are the deep reds and rusty oranges of fall and I’m thrilled that I can DIY the flowers and not worry about them until we pull them out for the wedding.  It’s saving us a ton of money and hassle.

We’ll be having mostly burgundy and orange dahlias and some chocolate cosmos, etc.  I was skeptical, but our florist assured us – there’s a local farm that she loves for dahlias from and that she can still get them in late Oct/ early Nov.  We even went and visited the farm’s booth at the farmer’s market, their flowers look amazing so I was pretty happy about it.  There will be a few other things in there, I’m sure… we still have to finalize some of it.

We are going on a cruise so its all tropical there and we wanted blue and yellow..I wanted Hydrangeas but they don’t hold up well apparently in a bouquet unless used day of—so I went with fake clay flowers to keep forever!

I requested roses, but I told my floral designer that I have complete trust in her opinion.  She’s going with seasonal selections for our area (whatever that means).

We’re getting married November 7th and the flowers will be roses and there is a white flower he will be using as well, whose name escapes me.  We’re not doing floral centerpieces as they’re too expensive.  The flowers for his mother and grandmother will be the lily (wrist coursages).  And to be honest with you, I can’t remember what the boutinneres will be.  We booked everything last September.

We are using white roses and green hypericum berries.  I am DIYing all my flowers with the help of my BMs.  I have done wedding flowers for my brother’s wedding but other than that no one has any experience so I wanted to keep it simple.  Our colors are green and white so they will fit right in. 🙂

We are having a white lilies, ivory garden roses, green hypericum berries, wax flowers, and rosemary in the bouquets. I love the smell of rosemary; it smells like fall to me! Our bouts will be hypericum berries and wax flowers, and our centerpieces are floating candles and silk orchids to save $$ since flowers are super expensive in November. For a long time I was anti-flower and was going to DIY my own bouquet out of dried lavender and wheat, but my mom talked me into the fresh flowers and now I’m kind of excited about them.
