I'm getting married in April and I love tulips.  Anyone else using Tulips as their flowers for their wedding?  Show pictures if you have any!

    This is has been discussed here before and the results have been mixed.  I did a mockup of a tulip centerpiece for my wedding and I'm glad I did.  They were droopy and I wasn't happy with them at all so I nixed them.

    I don't have pictures, but I've seen simple centerpieces with mixed tulips in square vases. It was great and very casual. Next time you buy flowers get tulips and play a little.

    My bouquet will be all fresh tulips (just shy of 2 dozen), as will my bridesmaids bouquets (about a dozen each). The bouts and corsages will be artifical tulips.

    My florist said that she has used tulips before and had no problems, except that sometimes they grow even after they've been cut and she's ended up with tulips towering over other flowers in bouquets. She said that this won't be such a problem with mine because the bouquets will be all tulips, so it will be easier to blend in/adjust a few taller ones if it happens. She also said that as long as we leave them in water when they aren't being used for pics or in the ceremony they'll be fine.

    I love tulips!  I would really like to have all tulips in my bouquet, but I'm getting married in September so I'm afraid they will be terribly expensive.  April will be a great time for tulips though.  I think they have such a simple, clean look.  Good luck!
