    Hey All,


    So the wedding planning is rolling ahead rapidly, and I have quickly realized that I know little to NOTHING about flowers. I know that I like the look of, but am not certain about any specific flowers.

    I know that I don't want any greenery in my bouquet, and I think I'd like primarily purple as the accent color... does anyone have any ideas or pics I could reference for ideas??

    Thanks my fellow brides!!

      First off, your florist would be the best person to ask (I'm far from an expert but I've seen my fair share of bouquets) - though I understand may be hard to communicate with a florist in Mexico. Some purple flowers to look into:

      iris
      purple haze roses
      purple/magenta mini callas - (one of my favorites!)
      fresia

      The bouquet below has some purple accents in it among others - the purple flowers are:

      fresia (bright purple)
      dalias (big flowers)

      mini callas are in there too, but are orange in this bouquet - but they come in magenta as well.

      I don't know if these flowers are available in PV, but it would be worth asking. You may also want to search for photos of bridal bouquets that you like - then send them the picture to see if they could duplicate it or mimic it.

      Good luck!

        Wow Nathan! That bouquet is gorgeous, and actually, almost exactly what I want. Do you know what the larger orange flowers are called? They are such a nice pop against the purple.

        Thank you so so much! I'm definitely going to send this to my WC and see if this would be a possibility.
