We have similar taste in flowers! My bouquet is Blushing Bride Protea (#1) and Cafe Au Lait Dahlias (#3).  I believe #2 is gooseneck loosetrife.

silvalia :  yes! definitely loosestrife!

I feel stupid.. I used to study (purple) loosestrife. -_-  I litereally grew 750 individual plants from seed in a greenhouse.  *sigh*  To be fair, this was almost a decade ago…

But anyway, that is accurate.

CarolinaJames :  Peonies are not in season in August, if you could even get them they would be $$$.  I would suggest looking into garden roses instead, they are fluffy and give off the appearance of peonies but cheaper and in season.  Dahlias are in season, so not as pricey.  Blushing Bride Protea is hit or miss in August (i’m hoping it will still be around, my florist didn’t make any promises but I really want it!). Exact prices will vary by area, I would set a budget and find a florist that will work with it.  I went over my original budget once I met with florists and understood what it would take to get what I was looking for.  Have fun!

Ranunculus will also be out of season in August too, they are March-April I believe. Peonies and ranunculus don’t overlap much. As an alternative #4 is dusty miller, just no little balls but furry green leaves. I agree with garden roses, I had some in my bouquet and loved them. Show your florist some inspiration pics and to really keep costs down, just ask what’s in season.

I happened to get married Spring so had a lot of flowers I liked. You can also get a different look with the more loose and flowy organic arrangements that are popular. Here’s a pic of my bouquet, has the ranunculus and garden roses.
