I'm brand new to the boards. I've been logged onto this site for awhile, but this is my first post. I'm planning on growing my own flowers for our September 17th wedding. I've got a list of blue flowers that bloom in September in Michigan and have narrowed it down to the ones that make good cut flowers, but I'm having serious trouble coming up with blue, purple and white flowers as a group that bloom in September in Michigan, Make good cut flowers and that I can plant now and have bloom this year (as opposed to perennials I believe which apparently don't bloom until the following year?). Does anyone have any good suggestions?
I like Hydrangeas for the BM's bouquets b/c quite frankly after looking at some plants at a greenhouse those actually looks like you could just cut off the bunches of them and tie a ribbon on them and wouldn't even have to piece anything together, lol. They look like a ready-made bouquet to me.
For mine I was thinking white roses w/ some blue hydrangea and then I was going to splurge on the purchase of some blue orchids which are gorgeous and put like 4-6 of them in there as well?
My centerpieces aren't flowers, but I like he idea of having flowers around the reception a bit.
Has anyone else grown their own flowers or is a regular flower grower and perhaps knows what can be grown to bloom in September in Michigan that is blue, white or purple?
Sorry I know I have a lot of questions.
