Hey there ladies! I just moved my date from June to August and I had my heart set on peonies but it looks like I might not be able to get them. What kind of flowers are you guys looking to have at your weddings? Anyone else doing hot pink flowers?

I’m September 2012, but its close enough that there will be similar availability. I am using sunflowers for all of the bouquets and zinneas for the centerpieces. If you still wanted to stick with the overall look of peonies, why not try garden roses? They are a bit fuller and fluffier than traditional, long stemmed roses. Good luck with the planning!

Planning on an eclectic mix for my hand-tied boquet made up of wildflowers, greenery and some whites. Bear grass, fern, huck, ranunculous, scabiosa pods, possibly rose), thistle, daisies, foxglove…

I love lilies and roses, so this is what I have in mind for my bouquet.. Except I’m not sure yet if its going to be all white, or if the purple in this picture will be red instead. (Since my colors are black and white with splashes of red as an accent).

We just moved our wedding date from May 2012 to August 26th, i have a brooch bouquet and my bridesmaids have silk rose bouquets, (already made/bought and boxed) but i was going to use vintage birdcages or mason jars for our table decorations, and in keeping with the vintage feel, i wanted peonys…….
or large roses maybe, or even lilacs.
but if i cant get them fresh, i may have to settle for silk flowers. my colours are purple and lilac and pale pink, and a vintage theme.
any other suggestions of fresh flowers for my centrepieces?

I haven’t decided on my colors yet, but so far I’m thinking daisies and calla lilies.

I also love peonies, but am going to settle for cabbage roses. I also am going to use astible, dusty miller, billy balls.

I’m hoping for calla lilies and roses…we’ll see…since I’m just beginning the “finding the florist” process.

I’m gonna do thistles and roses. Hopefully I can get the thistles I want. I think I’m going to grow them though.

well our wedding date is NOW August 11th and its officially booked now……so it wont change again…..(i hope) got to book the registrar tomorrow, but the venue is definately booked.
i too am hoping to grow some pale pink old english roses for next year, for my centrepieces. i am not a novice, i already grow roses but havent got the right variety that i need. i have a pink rose bush, but its too darker pink for what i want…….i really only need about 15-20 roses, 3-4 for each birdcage, and i have 4 birdcages i want to fill, but at £2 each rose…..thats a lot of money that i can save. 3 rose bushes will cost me £15…….and i get to keep them after the wedding.

@pinkbride2012 – we’re using hot pink flowers for 8/4/12, as well! I had my heart set on peonies too, but the florist said no way. we’re going to have orchids, garden roses, crysanthemums, coxcomb, and hydrangeas.

I am also going to use cabbage roses and dusty miller. Peonies are my dream flower, and I might have to try and get a few for my bouquet even if they cost a lot.
