A bride who was married this past July used silks. CaliKate&Bill I think was her screenname (or something similar). She doesn't frequent the board much, but you may be able to find her bio by searching a little bit.

we used Sue Leuken, who owns The Petaler Florist shop. (photos by Zettl Photography)

I wanted to keep my flowers simple, classic.
So for my bouquet, I went with all white roses:
Image

for the girls, I decided on Black Magic red roses:

closeup of the bm bouquet:

and for the boutonnières, the groom had a single white rose and the groomsmen had a single black magic rose,
Image

and a fun photo to show how well the red goes with black and white :)

After much deebate, we went with all white and ivory flowers. Jackie Davis of Elegance by Design did a great job as our florist and DOc. All photos are by Clary Pfeiffer.

I loved my flowers. this is a pic of brides bouquet. I think the flowers were pink and red roses, purple mini carnations, white austramares?, some filler flowers, and greenery at bottom.
My bridesmaid dresses were pink.

My flowers were a bit too orange and the ribbon was too purple, but hey...fuschia is a tough color! And it's totally my bad cuz I never met with Angie (Chic Events by Angie) and she went off a picture I sent, which I sent to show the centers I wanted, but not necessarily the petal color...well, you get it. Miscommunication. But she couldn't have been sweeter to work with! And the flowers were put together beautifully, even though I didn't love the actual color. All the flowers were gerberas. I had all hot pink, the BMs had all light pink and my MOH had a mix. The moms got mini-bouquets and there were only a few hot pink roses (bouts for biodad and grandparents, corsages for stepmom and grandparents, mother's roses for ceremony). They guys all had pocketsquares.
