This is my first post, and I feel a little rediculous asking this…
I love flowers but am looking to keep the budget small without DIYing my own flowers. All we need are boquets and boutonnieres for the wedding party/parents, no centerpeices. Costco and Sam’s have beautiful prearranged packages but I cannot decied what to get!
This is my dress (I hope the image isn’t too big)
I love the vintage feel to it, which goes with our venue too, an old house/inn in the heart of downtown Washington DC. The wedding will be a August morning ceremony outdoors followed by an inside brunch, FI will be wearing a grey suit. Our colors are Navy with bits of yellow.
Do I go with an all Calla Lily Bouquet, or one with a mix of yellow roses, callas, and other flowers?
These are the Callas but they would be in yellow instead of pink.
And this is the mix boquet.
I think the latter boquet goes better, and I like how luch and full it is, but the callas are just beautiful… I’m really lost, any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I love the look of the mixed bouquet – more vintage and sweet.
But, I hate callas so I might be biased 😛

I think you can’t go wrong with either. That being said, I thibk I like the mixed better. I think it really glued with your venue/dress. I hope it’s also a little less expensive. I have yet to look into flowers and I’m scared to even begin to think about what prices are like :-/

I loved the mixed bouquet and I think it fits your theme better. Also, have you checked the cost of the callalily arrangement? When I ordered my bouquet, the florists were quoting me $8+ for each calla lily stem..

Thank you for all the great advice, y’all are so sweet!
Here are links to the two packages, if anyone else in interested, Costco Calla Lilies and the Mixed Boquet from Sam’s. The Callas are more expensive, and I normally wouldn’t entertain the notion, but my mother offered to pay and said I should splurge if I like them better. But after everything you all have said I’m going with the mixed boquet. Thanks!
