carnations/garden roses are very full red flowers

 

as far as the rose petals it depends on how much you want to use to line your aisles. i always use the following calculator….Good Luck!!

Carnations are by far the cheapest flowers. Not love by everyone but in my opinion they look great tightly pack together. Garden roses on the other end are more expensive then regular roses but give the look of a peony.

Oh, have you looked at carnations? They’re beautiful when tightly packed, and they aren’t expensive – plus they’re in full bloom all year round. One of the bees did small red carnation centerpieces and they were beautiful… I’ll try to find which one it was….

I agree with carnations. I’ve been really surprised at how awesome they look and I will be including them in my bouquets.

Mrs. Lime did it! They were beautiful.

We also used packed carnation centerpieces in white – they were beautiful!

I”ve been looking for the same thing for my bouquet and I finally decided to order roses, mimi callas and tulips from fiftyflowers and then try to pick up some red peony roses or dahlias at a local shop. I looked at dahlias, garden roses, aisiatic lilies, etc. but they are too pricey to do all the bouquets and centerpieces. So, centerpieces will just be made with tulips, roses and callas.

Lisianthus are fluffy flowers and come in a lot of colours.
