    I like them in the boquet you posted… but I used to HATE them because all I ever saw was arm boquets… of which I am most decidedly NOT a fan.

    I dislike the huge white ones (OMG that arm bouquet!) but I like the smaller, colorful ones. I agree that they look better mixed in with other things, though. 

    I saved these photos for my own inspiration and they just happen to have them.

    Too funny! I LOVE calla lilies and am actually upset that my florist barely put any in the bridesmaid bouquets even though I kept harping on how much I loved them/wanted them.

    That being said, I HATE roses with the fire of a thousand suns and said florists kept trying to stick them into my centerpieces. I had to repeatedly tell him NO ROSES! Blech.

    OP, if you don’t like calla lillies, GET THEM OUT OF YOUR BOUQUET!! 🙂

    I love them-had in mine, and they were the Maid/Matron of Honor bouquets and bouts. Corsages do NOT need to match! My Mom’s corsage had yellow spray roses, and it was the only yellow flower at the whole wedding. (My bouquet was orange, so her color was “sort of” close to mine.)

    Also- this statement bothers me, about the berries- “FMIL seemed excited by them so we let it be. I googled some pics of them and weren’t in love with them.”

    No, no, no! YOUR wedding, YOUR flowers. If Future Mother-In-Law loves callas and berries so much, she can buy herself some. You need to love your bouquet! 🙂

    I like calla lilies and grew them in my garden back when I lived in Memphis.  That being said I am not a huge fan of them in bouquets and did not have them in mine.  I love orchids too and did not want them.  I wanted our bouquets to have a very soft vintage feel to them and so they did not work.  Even if you love a flower does not mean that they fit your vision for your day.

    I say get them out of your flowers at least.  You should LOVE your bouquet!!!

    @lovelyduckie:  haha… it does doesn’t it?  Like she was busy whipping up the cream of leek soup for her DIY catered wedding and WHOOPSIE forgot she had to walk up the aisle.

    Side note: Here are some *actual* veg boquets that are pretty kick-ass

    @angelicd77:  So pretty! Those are the kind I want for my bouquet, but they will be all by themselves.

    And now I feel like the minority because my BMs will have 3-5 large callas, though I don’t think they’ll arm hold them. We’ll see.

    To each their own!

    I love callas! I think they’re so simple and elegant. I love everything modern, though.

    @seevan07:  Theyre called picasso callas. I really like them a lot more then the plain white ones and they have so much more depth to them. I just love the color combo with the orchids <3
