Okay so within the last week, I have decided to completely change my flower. I was set on blue dendrobium orchids, but after speaking with my photographer, I am deciding against them.
My wedding colour is teal, and we have decided to do pink flowers to bring in a pop of colour and I think it’ll be a nice contrast against the Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses. Here is one of the dresses (they are all differnet, but all this colour)
Do I do orchids?
My bouquet being all white with pink center orchids (much neater than this), and then the girls carry all pink white white center orchids.
OR calla lillies – again I would carry all white (or maybe a few pink) and then the girls all pink

I LOVE the orchids and the calla lilies. When I told my florist I wanted calla lilies, she told me they were more expensive, so just keep that in mind. But the first and second pictures are my favorites! You can’t go wrong with either of those.
ETA just fyi I voted for orchids

@whitwhit: Oh good to know. I thought the orchids would be the most expensive. Ill have to arrange another meet with my florist to get a new quote. Thanks for replying!
The poll is SO close!

I LOVE the orchid/calla lily bouquet! (Middle row, pink and white one) – might even steal it for my own bouquets! LOL

They are all gorgeous. Hydrangeas will definitely give you more bang for your buck.

The orchids.. its like an inside out kind of thing. Super cute and that photographs so well when they’re laid in a row with yours in the middle. Super cute.

I think with that beautiful teal colour, the orchids provide the most stylish pop. I love hydrangeas but generally associate them with a softer vibe. I don’t much like calla lillies – but that’s just me!
I think with your bright, happy colours, you’ve got a really great idea for the orchids!

@lumos: Thanks for your reply – now that you’ve said that, I totally see what you mean! So orchids it is, aslong as they aren’t much more expensive than what I had planned before!

I love the look of the calla lilies best, but I also like the orchids. (I voted for the calla lilies)

We’re doing orchids and calla lillies but out of those pictures I definitely prefer the all orchids bouquets. I love the look of hydrangeas too but my florist said they wilt quickly and aren’t the best flowers for bouquets, so we’re using some of those in our alter arrangements.
