I am allergic to most flowers and need your help!
Stargazer lillies and other high pollen flowers are beautiful and so striking, but they elevate my allergies.
Silk flowers would be the wisest, but I really, really, really want real flowers for the big day : )
Does anyone have any recommendations for allergy-friendly flowers for the bridal and bridesmaid bouquets?

You can ask the florist to remove the stamens.It is commonly done.
Otherwise,begonia, columbine, hollyhock, hosta, foxglove, daylily, clematis, balloon flower, penstemon, stonecrop, snapdragon, zinnia, herbs, pinks, lobelia and salvia.
There actually are quite a few chrysanthemums, dahlias and asters that are called formal doubles and that have no pollen. All of these formal doubled flowers will be ones with a very high number of petals per flower. What has happened with these flowers is that they have been hybridized so often that the pollen parts (the stamens) have turned into parts that now look more like petals (staminoids). All true formal double flowers will be pollen free.
‘Cecile Brunner’ roses, are always allergy-free and produce no pollen at all. The Banksia roses, which will be either yellow or white, are small, cute, come in dense sprays, and are also pollen free.
Hydrangeas, camellias and orchids are good.
