Flower ????????

Recommended Posts

Hi girls...so spoke to my mother and showed her my pics for flowers I liked, well she didn't think they were colorful enough and things I should go with Gerber Daisies instead.....Which I agree with her (she has very good taste in decorating,especially flowers)

I want to have my girls (4 bridesmaids) carry Gerber Daisies, but I want to have Gerber daisies with another flower, but not roses.....

I asked Maye yesterday if Calla lilies were available in July and she said White ones would be available....

Ok....Main ?...

 

What would you mix with Gerber daisies for bridal Bouquethuh.gifhuh.gifhuh.gif

what is your budget (your flowers, attendant's flowers)
huh.gif? Parents and FMIL is helping pay for this...., They both want beautiful flowers.....

Bridesmaids will have gerber daisies only (different color)
Table will have Gerber daisies only
My bouquet will be slightly different.

sorry don't think this helps

Okay here is my take. your bm dresses are a bright pink/coral color right?

 

why not do roses with some cymbidium orchids? green goes really nicely with those colors.

 

for your bouquet I would do something more dramatic. All roses, roses and orchids, or perhaps all white callas (which I am obviously partial to)

 

I like gerber(a) dasies, but to me they seem a little more informal. Definitely cheery and fun, but if you are going for "beautiful flowers" I may go with something with more drama.

 

I didn't spend a ton on my flowers (granted, I didn't use a lot of color either) but felt like what I did have really made an impact. My florist was really reasonable. I can give you more info on what I paid if you are interested but I know that, for instance, my all white calla bouquet was only $65 - originally quoted as $300 from Elena Damy

Tasha,
Love that idea....Braidsmaids Flowers: so what color roses? what color cymbidium orchids?
Should I do White Callas for me?....I love those too, would they look good with bridesmaids flowers

cymbidiums are green. they are pricey in Cabo but very pretty. Check out this knottie (from OC's) bio

 

Bio

 

and I think that you can do whatever you want for your flowers. there are no rules. My bms were supposed to have different flowers, but Rosy called me on my wedding day to let me know that the flowers for their bouquets were not great so they swapped them for Callas - which was great for me. the important thing is to get flowers that you love.

 

eta - here is another good one from an OC bride. I love the oranges, creams and greens
