Could you use orchids?  Tulips are beatiful!  I wish they were available cheaply for the end of August!

I’m getting married in April 2010 and I was thinking of getting Daffodils or gerbera daisies…

I don’t know where you’re getting married, but here in TX we always have peonies by May 29th. Did you look online?

an alternative to peonies and roses are garden roses.  They’re nice and fluffy/ruffly and much prettier than the plain jane rose.  I’m not sure when they bloom, but you could check it out.

I"m hoping to use irises for my April wedding (doing a test run today!). White irises are beautiful in a bouquet! We might muse alstromeria for boutonierres since irises seem a little large. I"m not sure if they would still be in season that late in may, but I think so!

I really like lisianthus and stock (similar to freesia in look).  I also really like garden roses and spray roses.  Stock comes in dark pinks/fuchsias as well as purples and whites.

Hi i’m getting married in april 2010 but in Ireland, i too didnt orginally want the usual roses or tullips although they are beutiful i wanted peonies, but thought i couldn’t get them due to seasons,but to my surprise they can be got but at a price, but appleblossem i love your white iris’, Iris’ are one of my favourit flowers but i have never seen them in white before, i must look into them, love the idea of garen roses now, its amazing how your mind changes once the details are being decided. Its been difficult for me to get colours as my h2b is in the irish air corp and in the beginning we thought he would be wearing a blue/navy uniform but we think we are now going for his dress uniform which is very dark navy/black, finally decided on colours of black/almond/pink(not definate on the shade yet).

 Good luck to you all

I was never a fan of the standard rose, so I am looking at garden roses and gardenias as alternatives. (I’m planning on a May 2010 wedding and am pretty certain they’ll be readily available by then, but don’t quote me on that)

There are so many beautiful spring flowers to pick from: crocuses, forsythia, irises of course (LOVE them: this is the iris and rose bouquet from a friend’s wedding), lilacs, lily of the valley, sweet pea, tulips, snowdrops, daffodils, magnolias, etc. etc….

I would go with garden and/or peony roses, they look nothing like normal roses, IMO. The peony roses could get by as peonies, the only difference is that the peony rose is quite a bit smaller than peonies and they do not bloom as large. Garden roses are just stunning as well. I used garden and peony roses for my own wedding which was this past August- so I know they could be used for your own August wedding!
