Probably not my smartest move picking roses in February but we’re going with Black Baccara and Wanted (Hearts) roses. Still waiting on a quote from the florist/events planner.
What flowers are you having?

- Wedding: February 2014 - Windstar on Naples bay
I did my own arrangements with silks, and the bouts and corsages will be white roses, orchids and carnations. The toss bouquet will be whatevert florist picks.

Pink roses, carnations and green button mums for the centerpieces. Obviously we have to pay the Valentine’s season special price!

Ivory garden and tea roses for the bouquets, ivory hydrangea and spider mums for the centerpieces – we’re not doing many flowers for the centerpieces which is why we were able to choose hydrangea. They will be sprayed with a bit of blush.

@skippydarling: Your flower choices are lovely! Hope you got a reasonable quote back.
The colors of our wedding are shades of grey, soft white, lilac to eggplant purples and silver accents. The ceremony will be more on the creams, whites, and peaches end of the spectrum. And the reception will be moodier and incorporate darker purples.
My bouquet and the Bridesmaid or Best Man bouquets will include: cream/white tulips, quicksand roses, purple ranunculus, lavender spray roses, and dusty miller. Flowers will be in peach tones with hints of cream/white and lavender.

Ugh, flowers are the only thing I’m actually stressed about! We’re doing mostly branches and pine cones for decor, but the bouquets are kind of a mystery. We’re doing this long-distance, so I haven’t actually ever met with the florist. Our wedding planner is relaying our vision and then reporting back. Last I heard, there will be some variety of ivory roses that are a little ruffly, astilbe, ranonculous, silver berries, pine cones, lamb’s ear, and eucalyptus. The Bridesmaid or Best Man bouquets will be all white with silver berries as accents. Originally, my planner wanted to make them more pinecone heavy, but I didn’t like the idea of that with black Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses… hope I made the right call!
Anyone else worried about their flowers and the temperature? I’m keeping my fingers crossed for 35-ish!

White roses and white lilies, with a touch of blue (haven’t figured that out yet lol)
