My bouquet was hydrangea, green button mums, chocolate cosmos, cream scabosia, white ranucuclas, and a bit of green wheat:

Image

My bridesmaids carried million starts babies breath:

Image

Boutonnieres were fiddle leaf ferns with a tuft of babies breath:

Image

Pew decor was clusters of wheat with ivory hydrangea:

Image

Reception centerpieces were sheaves of wheat, gold gourds, and votive candles:

Thanks!! I'm not normally a fan either, but I saw a picture of a baby's breath bouquet when I was planning and fell in love with it. I loved that it went along with all the other natural elements of the day. :)

My bouquet was a combination of cream roses, white spray roses, hydrangea, and some greeneryt hat I don't know the name of:

Image

The girls' bouquets had the hydrangea, cream roses, and pink roses. The pink roses were a last minute addition that my florist and I hadn't discussed, but I love how the pink popped against the blue of their dresses:

Image

Image

Image

Image

The guys' bouts were all one big white rose and DH's bout was a few spray roses and some hydrangea. I would have rather had that turned around but I like the way it looked:

ame wrote:My flowers were a mixture of deep purple callas, blue pacific roses (lilac), caspia, freesia, and purple shades of agapanthis. My girls carried bouquets of mixed agapanthis in shades of purple and a few white with purple sprinkles. The florist handed me charts of all the flowers I wanted and I got to choose the actual flower colors of each type of flower. It was kind of cool. The callas might be my favorite part of mine. They looked really great when they were shown to me prior to their delivery at the Palm House. Someone else delivered them, not the florist, and they dumped them right in the sun on the counter and that did NOT help the flowers stay in great shape. So mine had started to "steam" before we showed up. They made it through the day though.
The boys all had bouts with a single bluepac rose and a couple sprigs of agapanthis. My dad and my husband both got 2 bouts since the florist expects that they hug the most. And it was smart. My dad's had died a horrible death from my overly huggy family.

My flowers were by the now-retired Jupiter's Garden. THEY ROCK SO HARD there are NO words for their rockin'ness.

Eggplant is my BM dress color and my wedding coordinator is dead set on having mini eggplant callalillies. I'm so excited to finally see them in a bouquet! Beautiful.

I can't tell you exactly what my flowers consisted of because it changed the week before due to the original flowers not wanting to cooperate:

My girls each had a different flower that I had in my bouquet:

Flowers by Rebecca Huffman. I LOVE HER. She gave me exactly what I wanted.


Image
My bouquet: cymbidium orchids, pink peonies, orange ranunculus, orange tulips, pink roses, hypericum berries, bells of Ireland, grasses and leaves

Image

Image
BM bouquets: same as mine, without the orchids

Image

Image
tall centerpieces: Pink roses, orange asiatic lilies, tropical leaves/greenery and the vases had curly willow in them. We also had short centerpieces.

Image
DH's Bout - cymbidium orchid and hypericum berry. The other guys had orange ranunculus with hypericum berries.

I have pics of my flowers and the bridesmaid flowers in my bio. Although I must say I don't think they look nearly as good in the pics as they do in person :)

Here are my flowers! I just loved my bouquet! I thought the green/whites in the flowers looked so good in the outside ceremony setting & against the Navy blue dresses.
My bouquet had jade green roses, white tulips baby breath and something else tiny - bavaria, maybe? The girls just had bouquets of baby breath and we used baby breath on the chairs on the aisle during the cermony and a vase of cali lilles for our in memory of loved ones not present vase.
