    Hi everyone,

    I am still unsure as to what flowers tto have in my bouquet.

    I would like: Peonies, Roses, Fushia lillies, Orchids & Calla lillies.

    The colours I am going for are whies, pinks and hot pinks.

    Does anyone think my selection is a bit over the top?

    Also, if I do go for this bouquet I don't know what flowers to have in my bridesmaid bouquet?

    Any comments or suggestions would be appreciated.

    Many thanks :)

      Maybe use the orchids, lillies, and calla lillies for your own bouquet because they are more expensive. And then you could still use the other flowers you like in your bridesmaids bouquets.

      I am considering similar flowers, but in white, fuscia, and orange. I will probably limit it to Lillies and calla lillies though because I want those ones in particular to stand out!

        But I love the peonies, I have to have those. And they are not that cheap in Mexico I don't think.

            I am just a bit concerned as to how it will look. I have tried to find pictures of similar bouquets but no luck

              I have seen a lot of pink and white bouquets with orchids, peonies and lillies in them, but I don't think I've seen all five. I like the idea of maybe doing your bouquet with orchids, peonies and one type of lilly and then use maybe the other lilly in your BM's bouquet?

                    Those are all beautiful flowers but for a dark pink (hot pink) I love Gerbera Daisies. Just a thought.

                      Since you can't find any pictures of bouquets online, you might want to try going to a craft store that sells fake flowers and try putting a bouquet together yourself, just so you can get an idea of what they would look like together. That way, you can put flowers in or take them out as you go.

                      I'm definitely partial to the idea of orchids, peonies and roses, but that's just because I'm not much of a lily fan.

                      Good luck with your choice!
