How about spider mums, gerber daisies, hydrangeas, carnations, the list goes on and on :D…

Hydrangeas are lovely full flowers.

Fiftyflowers.com sorts out their flowers by color. Here is a list of all the burgundy ones. If you want something different I think gerbera daisies or dahlia are different and fun. The dahlia would give you the “fullness” of a rose or carnation without being overdone. If you like roses but don’t want traditional roses because they are too common, you could always use graden roses.

Hydrangeas are gorgeous! Carnations are a cheaper alternative, and look great when bunched together.

I really like the look of carnations, they look soo chic when bunched together.

Do you have any color in particular in mind?  Try googling fall harvest flowers, or take a look at this site (which would be more helpful if it had photos of everything–this has photos but seems more overwhelming).  In September, look at zinneas, dahlia, etc.

Here is a dahlia bouquet that might work with your colors:

If you wanted to stay in the same color family I would totally play off the burgundy and do some chocolates and pink variations to add some depth

That’s a beautiful bouquet! Your girls could have ivory carnations or hydrangeas instead of the roses, too!

I don’t think those are real flowers on that cake….they look like gum paste or something. If that’s the case they may not even exsist in nature. They don’t look like a lily to me. The look something more like this (which is a desert rose):

I’m not sure if that’s what they are modeled after or not but honestly you could use any flower on your cake.

Hey, Roses may be common, but they also seem incredibly easy to work with if you’re DIY’ing your bouquets, and they’re not as expensive as I thought they would be (if you’re on a tight budget).

That said, I love the look of those Dahlias!
