Hi everyone. 145 days left and I think I may have found our florist. However, I am having a difficult time deciding on the kind of flowers I want.

My wedding colors are raspberry(fuschia) and ivory. I thought I wanted a white bouquet but I was thinking of having the BMs do white and I do pink. Or I do white and pink and they do the raspeberry with a soft pink mix.

I dont know what type of flower I want. I thought I wanted roses but I want to save money. Below are a few of the direction I am heading or thinking about. Any ideas and suggestions welcome. I appreciate it ! Smiley smile

    @ Hayle is http://alexiadesigns.com/Bridesmaids/Alexia-Bridesmaids/-Gathered,Strapless-Style-C972/ but raspeberry color.

    @FMC I have and I love it but a florist told me that when its like that the flower will blend in with my dress. Our photographer also says color stands out more in pics. im conflicted. almost ready to give up on flowers lol

    I like the middle bouquet! I think the mix of pinks is really cute. I also like the idea of having yours be pink and the girls be white.

    I don't feel like doing the math... what month is 145 days away? I want to pull flowers that are in season.

    Do you have a link for your dress? Or I'll just use a random picture if you don't want to post it.

    I like the roses and yes i agree, definitely have some color. thanks you sooo much! i very much appreciate it!. what do you think about carnations? on a brighter side i think they would definitely be cheaper but I'm not familar with them being it will be summer. I wanted my flowers to match with the girls. unless i mix roses and carnations?

    You could have a carnation base to yours and the pops of color can be roses... like the last example. (You are the Bride and can have something in yours that makes it special)

    The ladies can have All carnations. Lots of color and a pop of white (also like the last one)

    Here is a site with examples of flowers available in June if you want to check it out.

    http://www.freshroses.com/jun.html

    You could also check this site... use the "flower guide" and search by the name of the flower and it will tell you all about it *carnations are available year round

    This one is kinda neat.. I wonder if it is expensive....

    I like the girls in white and your's in color. And I really like the carnations! I've always been a big fan of carnations.

    I also love baby's breath bouquets!

    @Hayley you are amazing and these ladies are lucky to have you Smiley smile

    I love the raspberry carnations massed together, they look so modern!

    @Abiti, if you want white/ivory flowers, have the florist "collar" them in green leaves or other type of collar, then they will pop.

    @Tammy...Smiley winking. The third photo of just baby's breath is my work! Thanks!

    Thank you Monique Smiley smile that is what I was thinking if i do white flowers. '

    @Michelle, that is the impression I am under that they are a bit cheaper. that is what one of the florists mentioned.
