My flowers for my bouquet:

Lily of the Valleys and Dusty Millers instead of the LoV leaves. Thought they gave it a softer affect. Of course Matching bout.

Bridesmaids: Cream Roses, Hydrangea and Peonies

Tables/Decor etc: Cream Roses, Hydrangeas and Dusty Miller

We are lucky because peonies are in season!  I’m using peonies in my bouquet, colorful orchids for my arbor (we’re getting married on the beach) and white hydrangeas for our centerpieces.

Konfetti roses (gradiated red and yellow), blue delphinium, purple lisianthus, white ranunculus (the groom requested it for his bout), green hypericum, with gerberas in place of roses for the BMs.  My bouquet will be tied with purple and orange ribbon (my mom arranged my flowers with the florist – she doesn’t know that my hair garland has lilacs and monarch on it.)

The roses make me happy – my favorite rose is a color change variety known as Rio Samba, and Konfetti is the closest florist rose I’ve seen.

(ETA: That’s a Rio Samba pictured.)
