I just read a really cool article in Mother Earth News today about how dahlias (flowers and tuber roots) are edible. Who knew? Not that you should eat your bouquets, or anything… Laughing

Make sure that the flowers you want are in season.  A friend of mine loved those hawaiian flowers.  Their was a flood and caused a delay in shipment, so her flowers were 2 days late!

Hi there! My Maid of Honor was married in June and she had dahlia’s as her main flower. Our bouquets were gorgeous and I’m just sad I don’t have a photo of her bouquet to share with you. She had dahlia’s with spider mums. She also had dahlias as favors in small vases. Enjoy!

Hi! I got married last October and knew that dahlias would be a perfect flower for fall, so we used them exclusively in my bridesmaids’ bouquets. I thought they turned out beautiful! Here are a few pics.

I love them! I am always partial to hydrangeas, but if my florist tells me those won’t keep then dahlias are definitely part of my back up plan!

I love dahlias! I’m kind of obsessed with Arabian Nights Dahlias right now, but those poms were so stinkin’ cute. I adore the way dahlias and spider mums look together!

We’re using larger white dahlias for the bouquets (along with hydrangeas and other white stock)…here’s my post about them –

I think Mr. S will get some sort of small white pom for his boutonnier…not only are dahlias beautiful, but they’re pretty reasonably priced and very hearty flowers!
