Aww πŸ™ I was set on peonies, but we couldn’t get them in October. We’re doing garden roses too. I do love dahlias – is there another type of dahlia you can use, or is it basically the same situation for all of them?

@jpalm13:  Aw.  They will still be beautiful floral arrangements, and you’re going to have so much else going on that day that you won’t be able to nitpick the flowers.  In 10 years you’re not going to care that you didn’t have Dahlias.

@jpalm13:  Ohh I see. Yeah, dahlias do have a much different look than garden roses. I’m sure it’ll still be beautiful though! One of my closest friends is a wedding designer and former florist and she used to paint flowers all the time and they looked fabulous! Doesn’t make up for the size though, I suppose πŸ™

Aw… it really sucks when stuff like this doesn’t work out… πŸ™

That said, really most of your guests won’t care or notice that you have different flowers, and they are going to have a great time no matter what! And you can have a great time too! Just cry it all out now so you’re not crying on the best day of your life- remember, as long as you and Fiance get married, your wedding is a success πŸ™‚

@jpalm13:  Hmm.  Maybe ask if your florist can sub one of your other colored roses out for something else, just to have variety?  Maybe do smaller white dahlias instead?  Or ranunculus (which looks a lot like garden roses tbh).

Honestly, garden roses are so beautiful. They have such great texture and I think at the end of the day of your wedding, I doubt your going to say “I regret the garden roses, should of had dahlias.” It is really unfortunate you can’t have your wedding flowers the way you want it to, but they are delicate when it comes to weather and what is in season or not. Theres unfortunately nothing you can do πŸ™

I like the garden roses more, they look softer and more romantic. They’re going to look lovely, don’t cry!

Lisianthus comes in some really lovely peach tones and a really soft romantic look to them. Stock is a really great inexpensive flower that also comes in a light peach and makes a good filler/mass to break up shapes if you’re worried about only having roses- peach hypericum berries are really awesome for that too. Also mums come in all sorts of colors and have a somewhat similar profile to dahlias – it might be worth looking into if your florist can find any peach colored ones.
