I LOVE this bouquet, but I don’t know what all the flowers are. I see roses & calla lilies, but there are two other types. Not sure if one is peonies, which I didn’t htink came in red… or maybe they are garden roses & the other flower I have no idea. If you know what these are, please help me.
Also, I am thinking of ordering from fiftyflowers & DIYing my bouquet, Maid/Matron of Honor bouquet, 3 petite bouquets, 1 wrist corsage, 5 boutonnieres and 6-12 centerpieces with help. Does anyone have an opinion on a monochromatic color scheme and whether this would help or hinder getting good results? [attachment=332841,41469]

For sure there are callylils and roses, I think there might be either a ruffled tulip or peony there in the center. Then the long petal ones could be a type of daisy or mum. It is hard to tell. Take it to a florist they’ll either know or find something similar.

I’ll jump on the dahlia wagon too.. Btw, where did that picture come from? I think the bride is wearing my dress and I’d love to see the whole post!

Im not sure about those flowers however… Since were damask brides.. Im using black magic and baccara roses. Possibly throwing some freedom roses (bright red) in the Bridesmaid or Best Man bouquet.
Those are gorgeous flowers in the picture. You could always send that to a florist.

Dahlias and peonies (in addition to the callas and roses). It also appears to be a couple amaryllises in there as well which are only in season in the winter. You could get a similar look (from that particular angle) with anemones.

Looks like Black Magic or Baccara roses, red peonies, some type of large chrysanthemum, and calla lillies

Thanks, texaslawgirl! I thought they were mums but I can’t find red mums anywhere with a wholesale florist and I’m determind to DIY my flowers.
The peonies are way too expensive, but I might substitute some peony roses instead. The dahlias are super pricey as well. I’m going to check out the anemones.
