I’m using calla lilies for the bouquets in our wedding, but we are using only about 7 long stemmed ones.

My florist was calling the large orange callas, Mango Callas so I think there are some larger than the minis. I have no idea how many my bouquet will have, I just showed her a picture of what I like so I guess I’ll see after October 17!

I’m using the regular-sized white callas for my DIY bouquet, and I’m planning on using 2 big stems of hydrangea with about 12 large white callas and some greens. If they are mini’s, thought, 18 really isn’t that many.

My florist says there are 3 sizes – Large (regular – white) and small and medium mini calla’s!

The fist picture of orange callas’s were small mini’s and the 2nd was medium mini’s I believe!

I am having 14 pink med mini Calla’s in my bouquet!

I love Calla’s!

Is it all calla lilies?  It’s probably fine if that’s the only flower in the bouquet, unless you’re going for a more simple look.  My bouquet is going to be mixed flowers with orange callas but then then a couple bridemaids will carry a small bunch (5) of the callas, but it is a fairly small bouquet.

@ bvig – I am doing small bunchs of callas for my bridesmaids too. I slightly worried that they will look wimpy but I’m going for simple and elegant. I’m sure they will look fine, I’m just being paranoid, right!?

I read somewhere (a site selling calla lillies, of course) that a bridal bouquet should have 40 if you’re doing minis. I think it just depends on how full you want it to be.

@ bvig and Bridebella

I am doing the same thing with the small bouquets of mini’s – ive currently got them down for 6 – luckily my florist is going to let me play with them when she gets some in too make sure I am happy with them.

I will let you know what comes from this!

I used callas in my bouquet — it was gorgeous!  My florist used 30 mini callas.

Bridebella — Just saw your post.  You’re using calla lilies too?  First it was the same shoes, now the same flowers.  Could our wedding be anymore alike?  Smile  You have great taste, girl.
