I have decided to do DIY flowers for our wedding. I may leave the Bridesmaid or Best Man and my bridal boquet to a professional. But the centerpieces and church decor will be DIY.
My thought is though, how do I know what flowers go well together? I almost feel like I need a flower consultant. My colors are peach and plum. I am going for more of a vintage feel to my wedding.
I will probably be ordering form costco, fiftflowers.com or bloomsbythebox.com.
Here is what I am going for (apolgizes for the size).

To be honest, you’re looking at a very large variety of elements to that bouquet. I see 5 types of roses, 2 colors of ranunculus, anemone, sweet peas, bay laurel, bunny tail, seeded eucalyptus (both natural and painted gold), and jasmine vine. Most of that is in season in spring, not fall. You won’t be able to order all of that online from one of the major retailers (I’ve never seen bunny tail anyplace but the SF Flower Mart), and unless you live where bay laurel, eucalyptus, or jasmine vine grows at the time of your event, you may be out of luck for those elements. You might be able to duplicate color or texture but probably not both unless you are willing to spend a lot on flowers, even from one of the wholesalers. If you care more about color than replicating specific flower types, you can order things like stock, dahlias, spray roses, and some greenery (including seeded eucalyptus) that will come in your colors and be more in season in the fall. Good luck!

@greensnapdragon: Thank you so much! You are extremely helpful.
I don’t care so much on the exact flowers, I just want to get those colors. So if I can do that I will be more then happy. I love spray roses and greenary so maybe I can ask my florist to do a more “wild” like boquet and not something tight and round.
