The dark purple that looks like roses are lisianthus. Not sure what the light purple on top is.

@Raylene:  The greenish not bloomed yet look like Clematis which is used a lot in bouquets now.

The buds look like roses since they are in the same cluster. Your florist can adjust the length of any stems.

@Raylene:  If it is clematis, which I am sure it is because of the softness of the buds, they are beautiful when they bloom and look great in bouquets. It is so hard to decide on flowers and so expensive depending. I gave up on finding one and am now making a brooch bouquet πŸ™‚ Good luck!

The lighter purple flowers look like stock~that’s what my florist called it.  I don’t think it’s a super expensive flower either.  Since you are getting married in August, I think most of those flowers are in season, so that helps with the price.  There is a magazine called “Real Simple Weddings” that has a nice chart of common wedding flowers, the colors they come in, and what season they bloom in which I found super helpful when picking flowers for our wedding.  Especially since Fiance wanted blue as a color and there are not many blue flowers out there.  That bouquet is beautiful!

Oh and P.S.  That bouquet looks like it would probably be around…$75?  Just a rough estimate by glancing at the picture, though it may be less.

@Raylene:  Haha  No problem!  All of those flowers are grown year round so you shouldn’t have any problems with availability.  πŸ™‚
