What flowers do you love in life but won’t or didn’t use in your wedding and why?
Iris – adore them as single flowers but when grouped in a bouquet they lose their magic.
Lily of the valley – holy moley expensive!

Sunflowers are my favourite, but didn’t match my theme or colours for my wedding. Plus they are huge, and I’m quite small!

I love sunflowers, but was not feelin’ yellow against the blue dresses the girls wore, and was certainly not having it against my white dress.
Luckily my mom made my shower a sunflower theme, so I did have them for my wedding somehow.

Orchids my favourite flower but didn’t make my bouquet vision or wedding.
Peonies they weren’t in season 🙁
lilies I like more for other occasiona bouquets versus my wedding bouquet

Sunflowers! Maybe I can also request them for our couples shower 🙂

Peonies. They’re my favorite but they weren’t in season and were crazy expensive.

Peonies – they’re just not quite in season yet and I can’t justify the cost of sourcing even a couple blooms just because.

Another vote for peonies 🙁 so sad because they’re my favourite flower, but as with so many others here they’re out of season.

Orchids, I wanted them on every table but they are really expensive but I might still have some somewhere because they were my Grandmother’s favorite flower and I woul at least like to have some there to honor her memory.

Orchids – our theme is plumeria so that flower is everywhere. Plus we’re having a destination wedding in Punta Cana and orchids would be crazy expensive. Though I’m considering having wrist corsages made for my mum and FMIL with a single orchid, so might sneak them in.

@nocleverbeepun: I love Calla lillies.
They’re too fancy for my casual/rustic/boho wedding, though.

Gardenias. Love them but they are so expensive.

Hydrangeas – love them, and the blue-purple actually fits completely with our color scheme! But they won’t last for any length of time on the summer solstice in CA . . . And I’m not paying that much for flowers that will wilt so quickly.

Peonies- same as everyone else..not in season. But it hasn’t made me love my bouquet any less 🙂
