We had a hard time deciding and went the easy route and did lavender and white roses with filler flowers.

I am using orange and pink roses and gerbera daisies, green hypericum berries and some green dianthus flowers. 

Here is a trial I did using fake flowers from the Dollar Tree. 

and the green dianthus flower b/c they didn’t have fake ones at Dollar Tree Laughing

I am using live flowers for the day of..except for the arch. I made fake arrangements to hang on that.

We’re using peach lisianthus and a variety of roses: muscadet spray, combo, carmel, and my absolute fave, the Juliet garden rose:

If the timing is right, I’ll have white peonies in my bouquet (yippee!). For filler we’re using seeded eucalyptus, scented geranium, scabiosa pods, and honeysuckle vine.

we’re using yellow & ivory roses, yellow gerbera daisies, ivory calla lillies & yellow hydrangeas.  But we’re using all silk flowers, so it doesn’t matter if they’re “in season” lol

@timlorraine: I’m using all white calla lilies too.  Though I am trying to decide if I want some lilies of the valley in my bouquet.

Peonies peonies peonies! It’s why I picked the date I did!

Our wedding will primarily be white and dark pink peonies, with a mix of dark dark blue hydrangea, white roses, and stock.

We haven’t gone for our trial yet (no peonies til the end of April!) but here’s some inspiration pics:

@MrsMaine: Oh Jayzus! Those flowers are beautiful. I am so upset that I *might* not have peonies for my bouquet. It’s the beginign of July and I heard they phase out in June. Keeping my fingers crossed though 🙂

@bRooklynRocks: Aww you’re so close to June though! I hope you get lucky! They’re so gorgeous! I actually started off with your wedding date, and then we switched for that exact reason!
