Hehe, I don’t htink I really identify with any flowers, but I loooooove dahlias and ranunculus(es…ranunculi?) and yes, we’ll definitely be using both in the wedding.

Love roses. I have rose bushes everywhere. I line of nearly wild up front and a whole line along the back fence with about 4 that are still needing to be planted. I got it from my mother. Yes, roses will definitely be in the wedding flowers.

I also LOVE stargazers/oriental lilies. Pink is not in our wedding scheme and even though they have all white casablancas, I refrained from making that a wedding flower. I am not sure why but I never thought that would be included.

Right now I am trying to find an inexpensive greenish flower to use. Thinking I might go with yuko ono mums.

@bruschetta – LOVE ranunculus also! They remind me of certain roses too. I have tried growing them but never had any luck. I always kill them.

Lilies have always been my favorite, and I have callas in my bouquet. Too bad they’re silk, as I love the way lilies smell!

LILACS! Smell of my childhood…riding my bike past our big lilac bush when I was young. We aren’t having them since they have a ridiculously short bloom time. We probably will be using a lot of herbs and other greenery, but nothing real flowery probably. (Its not that I don’t love flowers, its just I don’t want to do cut flowers for cost and eco reasons and don’t trust the potted plants to actually be in bloom at the time because I just have that kind of luck with flowering plants)

I love hydrangeas, especially blue ones. But I am not using them for the wedding.

I love gerbera’s -all gorgeous and simple – like a giant daisy. We aren’t using them in the wedding though. My fave of the moment though are irregular incurve chrysanthemums with the layers and layers of petals, they look like a nice big pom pom.

Irises. An iris only opens up it’s petals over time and when it spread them, it’s a truly beautiful sight. Or like Shrek says, I’m an onion. I’ve got layers.

I don’t really "identify" with a flower, per se. I love love LOVE stargazer lillies (but won’t be having them at my wedding), and I also like roses (we’ll have two blue roses for the rose exchange). Most of our wedding flowers are going to be daisies (not gerberas, but plain white garden daisies).

When I saw white anemones (white flower with the black center) I fell in love. Modern, simple, but still delicate. I just love them and I rarely see them used so I’m excited to showcase a few!

Magnolias…. I’m no where near a traditional southern girl but I still feel a connection to these flowers. I’m hoping to have them in my bridal bouqet and in center pieces.

I have always loved dark red roses and violets. I would say, though I have always loved dahlias, bc they are slightly quirky!

Right now, I am loving Arabian Night dahlias, chocolate cosmos, ans anemones.
