I wanted sunflowers really, really badly. I’ve always thought I would have them at my wedding, but they don’t fit the color scheme or the feel.

If you love them, and they’ll fit your theme, I say go for it. Roses are lovely, but they’re very ‘standard,’ and it doesn’t sound like that’s your taste at all.

I haven’t had my florist appointment yet, so I have no idea on the mum pricing, sorry!

You should read this poem by Allen Ginsberg, though, it’s one of the reasons I wanted sunflowers. I love the last stanza so much :).

What are you leaning towards now? If you like the sunflowers, go for it, they can be gorgeous in bouquets! I have to admit to being biased as the one thing I knew I wanted in my wedding was sunflowers – whereever, whenever we had it, sunflowers were going to be our main flower! I have seen them done in different ways, I think they can be elegant, cute, fun or really striking, it just depends what you put them with.

Not sure if it helps, but if you like the yellow but want roses instead, what about yellow roses maybe?

I think the sunflowers & mums would be a really pretty combination & great with your colours. Attaching some pictures in case they help – the first is what I have gone for with my bouquet.
