I copied this from the knot.
I have finally gotten my head around the fact I am not going to really use hydrangeas and peonies. In September the cost would be over the top and I can come up with something just as nice. It will just take a little time. I am emailing back and forth with the florist to pick a Saturday that will work as she's on the Cape. After we sit down I'll have a better understanding of everything.
white bouquet of stephanotis, Akito roses, and calla lilies with pearl accents.
minus all that ribbon.
Stephanotis have a small similarity to hydrangeas, this isn't the best picture of them, but in person I think they're pretty (cheaper).
I like simple white roses for my bouquet and one rose for the boutonnieres. I am planning on having Vineyard Vines ties and I like the look of a simple rose as is. I do not have the ties picked out. But am pretty set on them being light blue to match the sashes on the bridesmaids.
I sure wish I knew more about flowers! But heck there is a whole lot i'm learing about this wedding stuff!
