@Mrs. Twinkletoes:

My daughter had real dahlias. We just put them in canning jars with water, glass gems and tied the top of the jar with raffia.  If you don’t have 75 tables, it was very easy. She picked out thedifferent colors of dahlias from a dahlia farm the week prior. They cut them and we picked them up a day or 2 before the wedding.  If they will be in season, and you can buy them directly from a farm, or farmer’s market your flowers shouldn’t cost much.

@Mrs. Twinkletoes:

My daughter chose each flower individually for each of the bouquets,-but really I don’t think they took long.  Her wedding was Aug.23,2009.  So they were fine.  The bouquets were put together the afternoon of her wedding, then they got photos taken, and the wedding began at 5pm.  I bought 7 dozen dahlias for 8 tables, and there were plenty for a few on the arbor and for the girls bouquets (that my aunt -a florist did on the spot-my daughter wasn’t sure she wanted bouquets) and there were still plenty of flowers- (maybe not for 17 tables though. lol Here’s another photo for you.

I don’t recall how long the bouquets looked good.  But I brought the centerpieces to the nursing home I used to work at the next day, and they were good for almost a week.  For the bouquets and the arbor, my daughter got 2 sizes of the water tubes from a local florist shop.  (My aunt flew in from accross the country).  A neighbor friend made the cake as their gift. (Not the best of my cake pics-sorry)One more inspiration photo for you of the cake:

I think I would prefer fresh daisy’s or field flowers to the paper flowers.  I love the milk glass!

I don’t love the paper flowers. They look too big for the vases. A smaller grouping of the flowers would give a better effect.

i think more, smaller paper flowers would be an improvement, but i like the general look.
