I am just curious, what type of flowers is everyone using for their wedding?

My bouquet is solid yellow roses, while the bridesmaids bouquets are a mix of roses and daisies. The flower girl gets an all daisy bouquet to carry. The parents and groomsmen boutonniere are either white or yellow roses (cant remember) and the grandparents are getting carnation bouts. FH isn't wearing a bout since he will be in uniform.

My best advice is to shop around for flowers. We're getting ours done by the best florist in town--she is charging us less than a dollar a stem for roses. She says that since people assume roses are expensive 99% of florists overcharge, when in reality they are pretty cheap.

Hello,

I am going to use cream and red roses, gardenias, peonies, orchids and hydrangeas with lots of greenery. My colors are cream, silver and Merlot. Here are a few of the pictures.









I am using cream and silver floral in the church (roses, peonies, orchids and hydrangeas: all in cream colors with lots of greenery and silver accents), The cocktail hour I am using a combo of cream roses, merlot color roses, and cream peonies with willow trees and silver accents. The reception I am using merlot color roses, cream roses, cream hydrangeas, cream peony and orchids with willow trees and silver accents. The natural waterfall we are using gardenias, orchids and floating votive candles. The after party we are using a combination of all the floral with willow trees and the silver accents.

Good luck, this has been the most difficult aspect of our plans. Floral require so much time and $$$$.

Most flowers are super expensive, so I'm planning on keeping flowers and floral arrangements to a minimum. But I need a bouqet & it would be romantic to have a few flowers in the reception area along with tons of candles of course.
I'm thinking of using hydrangeas! They come in a variety of colors & are truly beautiful, while also inexpensive. Here are some photos.

Using flowers that are in season help keep down the costs.

I wanted certain colors, so I gave my florist free rein with the flowers as long as the colors were what I wanted. I'll have to dig up some pics.
