@mseagles:  I had the same issue, actually. I found the PERFECT silk lilac bouquet on Etsy, but when I asked the seller to create a custom listing for me I got the bad news that she no longer had access to these particular lilacs, as the company is always on back-order. Here’s a picture:

So, I’ve now re-thought the bouquets and I getting custom fabric bouquets which I also love. I’m not sure if you also wanted lilac touches around your wedding, but we are doing dried deep purple lilac petals around our centerpieces from the company flyboynaturals.com

Also, it’s worth looking into purple or deep purple hydrangeas, which are lovely.
