They look like cymbidium orchids…I love the photo in the middle of the inspiration board.

The pink and white flower are stargazer lilies.   I love those !

If you go with stargazers ……. they have an odd trait.    They smell like Hot Dogs.   Seriously.     It’s not super strong.

It true about Lillies in general, they do not have the best odor!

My advice for a beach wedding is be very careful of the date you choose, especially if its in FL. Your relatives should be able to help you out with that. We went to a FL beach wedding in July and it was HOT HOT HOT, and HUMID. And it was actually one of the cooler day we were there. So be aware it will make everyone very uncomfortable to be outside when its so hot and sticky. 

Maybe the beginning of Spring? Your aunt would have better advice on weather stuff.

I’m having a beach wedding in May!  My aunt and cousin are well-known wedding planners in the Destin area, so they are going to help me!  So far this is what we have planned:

ceremony on the beach at 5 pm (my aunt said not earlier bc it will be too hot!), we will have white benches for guests to sit on & white urns with grasses as the “alter,” an acoustic guitarist playing, and my 13 yr old cousin driving the gparents to the site in a golf cart!  I have a lace dress and will carry a bouquet of white peonies with a hasta collar (oh! and a flower in my hair!) and my sister (MOH) is the only one standing up for me…. she will be wearing a super cute navy halter dress from JCrew and will carry a bouquet of white ranaculus (sp?).  My FH and his best man will wear a white Tommy Bahama long slvd shirt and kahkis – and all of us will be in barefeet!

the reception is a few minutes away at a lake-side pavilion with a pool – SO EXCITED! cocktail hour and dancing will be by the pool with dinner inside the pavilion.  LOTS of candles!

the afterparty is at a bar just down the street that is open until 2.  unfortunately in that area the outdoor music has to end by 10pm!  Boo!
