I’d recommend going with the path of least resistance. Tulips are beautiful and you could put them in your bouquet. They represent spring and this might just confuse guests – why not embrace New England in the late summer/early fall? There will be just tons and tons of blooming flowers that could compliment the rose garden.

Think about using hybrid delphinium, gigantic fuji mums in lime green, gladiolas in wild colors like purple or lime green, colored calla lillies in oranges or purples, and then incorporate some fall berries like pepper berry or privet. Dried millet and wheat as an accent would be nice too.

Think out of the box – everyone is going to expect roses and since you’re already in a rose garden, try to add to the drama by stepping it up a notch. Think harvest of late summer and it’ll be fantastic. Just my 2 cents however, do what you like – it’s your one big day! 🙂
