    Hi! What about using callas and/or dendrobium or cymbidium orchids.
    Your florist should also be able to make suggestions for you but here is a recent wedding that she used tiffany blue and purple and ivory. Just an idea and I hope it helps!
    Happy planning!

    White callas, and teal/blue orchids




    Fun cake with colors!


    Bouquet with ivory and accents of color



    Simple for cocktail tables

    In my opinion there is not one reason that you should have to be picking out flowers and doing a final meeting with your florist this far out from your wedding. In my shop I would not want to see you until mid march or april. AND your florist should be guiding you and giving you ideas of flowers that are available. You should NOT have to be making the choices,they should give you options.You should not feel so stressed about this ......that's my opinion

    I was thinking the same thing.  I've met with the florist and she's clear on the vibe we want for my bouquet, the gentlemen's bouts and the canopy.  We're not sitting down again until the spring.  Eeek!  I cannot imagine making final floral decisions now for a July wedding.
