I’m a bit flower-challenged…does anyone have any examples of flowers that come in a dusky or blush pink color?
I’m specifically trying to avoid baby or hot pink shades…
Any advice would be appreciated!

You can get tulips and peonies in the dusty pink color-
this picture has Scabiosas and tulips in it-
You can get cabbage roses which are very similar to peonies- these are blush
Also dutch roses come in a dustly color. Hope it helps!!

I LOVE the peonies and cabbage roses. I wish I could have afforded peonies at my wedding…they are one of my favorites.
@fvsbride: go to http://www.fiftyflowers.com. They are a flower wholesaler, but they have a HUGE selection and pretty good pictures. You can get a sense for what you like this way – and get a “sense” of price. OF course buying flowers through a shop and having them arranged for you will be more expensive – just gives you an idea. For example, if I wanted peonies (white) at my reception, wholesale would have been about $6/stem. When I went to a flower shop, she quoted me $12-15/stem. So about double.

Oooh, you can search by color – here: http://www.fiftyflowers.com/flowers/WeddingFlowersBlushFlowers_81.htm
I love stock, larkspur, gladiolas, snapdragons, and hydrangeas.
For filler, I loved the limonium because it was so colorful and rustic looking (although didn’t end up using any) or heather (too expensive for my needs, but oh so pretty).
