@pancakeg: Love it!  I thought about doing that near the beginning, so pretty and smells so nice.

My bouquet was all baby’s breath with some greenery around the base, as were my bridesmaids’ bouquets.  The flower girl had a bouquet of light green carnations.  The corsages and boutonnieres for our families were also light green carnations (it’s my mom’s fave flower and I let her pick what she wanted).  The wedding party men had millinery boutonnieres we bought from Etsy.

Orange gerber daisies, white cremons (similar to football mums), green spider mums, and bells of Ireland (green)… handmade by Mom the night before the wedding.

We each had a rose arm bouquet:

Our Maid/Matron of Honor had a smaller version that was also a more traditional bouquet shape:

I am going to get roses, tulips, calla lillies, another kind of flower I cant remember the name of right now, and some green hydrangea. This is the inspiration photo I showed my florist: Photobucket

@cyndistar3: i’m doing carnations as well! I think they’re a very underrated flower, and are definitely great on the budget! they look very pretty bunched tightly together like in your photo.

I’m actually making a fabric boquet out of ivory lace and other informal fabrics, with vintage buttons and brooches as the center of the flowers.

@pancakeg:  Your bouquet became my inspo…W/ less than a week to go I was informed that my flowers weren’t available.  I think the dried lavender is going to suit my wilderness theme even better though, and we can keep them…as sachets if not bouquets.  Thanks!

Only difference is mine will have dahlias instead of roses…
