Looks fine. If you weren’t sure you’d end up with what you wanted with the peach and pale pink, white and green should be easier for them to meet your expectations.

@Amaryllis: just my 2 cents – the images you posted don’t look vintage to me really. Additionally, I’m worried that if you have that many “white on white” flowers, they will not have enough depth to show up on the photos.

 

For your original meetings with florists – did you give them photographs and/or give them specific names of flowers? When you say vintage -can expand on that? Do you want flowers that look like the teens 1910-1915 or more deco 1920s? On your old palette – to get the peach and the soft pinks to pop, i would have suggested using dusty miller and/or varigated pittisporum(spelling?) as a filler and then used pink astilbe with sonia pink roses (very 90’s but has a different look if you use different fillers).   Pieces of brunnia, seeded eucalptus, and hosta leaves can also create texture and look old fashion/vintage. Cottage yarrow, hellebores and white scabiosa are textures i love too.

Because you are getting married in August, you could possibly have lots of field flowers available to you that would add to your look.

Imagine this with peach instead of the lemon yellow

Dusty Miller, Lisianthius, pussy willow, waxflower etc etc

white veronica,

snowberry, caspia, wheat, pink hellebores,

white dendrobium orchids, seeded eucalyptus, ranunculas, peach roses

scabiosa pods, varigated pitt, white veronica (can’t remember specific name), peach stock, pink peonies, maybe a bit of white hydraenga, white spray roses

pink astilbe on its own – it can really look peachy pink when put together with other flowers……………..

 

Hope this doesn’t overwhelm you! 🙂
