@ticatica: The first way to find flowers for good prices is to find out what is in season. A florist could help you with this- or google flowers in season in July.

This is what I found online:

July flowers include lilies, roses, sunflowers, tulips, irises, and lily-of-the-valley. All of these flowers bloom best in the summer months, especially in July.

Also- lilacs, hydrangeas, chrysanthemums are in season then…

Good luck!

Same colors here!  My bouquet was roses, wax flower, succulents and dusty miller.  My bridesmaids had simple white hydrangea bouquets.  All the bouquets were tied with silver ribbon.  We had 2 kinds of centerpieces – one in a round silver vase with hydrangea,wax flower, tea roses and silver brunia, and the other was 3 glass cylinder vases with submerged orchids and floating candles on top.  For the ceremony I had 2 large aluminum planters with white hydrangeas and tall curly willow branches.  The cocktail tables had very simple silver julep cups with bunches of baby’s breath.  The ceremony chairs just had bunches of baby’s breath tied with silver ribbon.

It was REALLY cost effective by the way, I couldn’t believe how little I was able to spend on flowers and have them look great!
