I love love love them and my bouquet will be mostly dahlias. I’m not sure how many stems though, the florist is doing all that. They can be quite big and full though so you shouldn’t need too many!

Have you ever seen a dinnerplate dahlia? Not for a bouquet but if you love dahlias, check them out sometime. Utterly amazing.

sorry, eta I’m having them with roses and calla lilies, no fillers.

@kperry3: We are growing our own dahlias and calla lillies for the bouquets and I will be using the dahlias for centerpieces, I love them and their colours are so vibrant! I don’t know yet if I’ll be using fillers, I guess I’ll figure that out once the flowers are out this year and we put them together.

I’ve always loved dahlias, and really think they can hold their own in a bouquet. They have such a gorgeous mathematically pleasing structure in their own right that I tend not to put anything else with them in arrangements. But for a bit more visual interest than just a ball of dahlias in full bloom, I found this shot where they used some of the unopened flowers as both greenery and added texture. Might be an idea!
