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

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.

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 🙂
