My 2 favorites are peonies and roses.  But ranunculus are also lovely.  I love the look of those blooms!

One different flower I like are Bells of Ireland.  Soft, very delicate smell and their height and green color makes for a nice floral arrangement.  I always try to get some for St. Patrick’s Day at the house.

I think I’ll have peony in bouquet.  Lovely pink peonies and maybe some cream colored garden roses.  I would love to have magnolia leaves on the underside of the bouquet beneath the flowers, framing them.  Some have placed ribbons underneath, but I’d like to do Magnolia leaves.

Possibly one large magnolia in center of bouquet with the roses and peonies if the look would be right?  When I smell magnolias, I think of home.  Lovely lemony sweet smell.  I definitely want magnolias in the centerpieces and their leaves somehow.

oooh, luv Parrot tulips and Gladiolas make a great statuesque (inexpensive)centerpiece! But alas, I’m having a feather and rhinestone bouquet for my DW.

Like many others, I also love Peonies and Ranunculus. I like the graphic looks of Dahlias.  I grew up on Cape Cod so blue Hydrangeas have a special place in my heart. -basically, I love flowers, can I be a florist? – I would love to have any of these in my bouquet but will proably have to let go due to budgets and seasons (and they all prob don’t look good together).

The only flower I insist on having in my bouquet is Sweet Peas. My mom has called me ‘Sweet Pea’ since I was a kid.

I’m a huge fan of gerbera daisies — however I couldn’t figure out a way to work them into the light blue color scheme I wanted for the wedding. So, instead I went with another flower that’s high on my list — hydrangeas. However, if I find a way to work my daisies in, I’ll definitely be doing it!

I have expensive taste and Orchids are my fave. I am incorporating some in my bouquet and a few in the centerpieces(but not a ton).

I love love love tulips, daffodils, and irises.  Naturally I would love the three flowers that are only in season for like 2 months out of the year (not my wedding month, BOO!)  I think I love them because my mom always planted them in the garden and I loved watching them come up every spring because it meant winter was over!

I am definitely a peony girl, but since my wedding will be in July- I’ve started to cheat on the peony with the ranunculus.  I’m very intrigued by this "sweet juliet rose" that blossoms posted about. Anyone have any pictures?

Love hydrangeas! I have them in the bouquets and they are awesome. Love the bunched up, full look they have, but they still look elegant and classy.
