What Flowers Are (Were) In Your Bouquet?

And what did you use for your bouquet handle? (i.e. bouquet jewels, etc.)

  Please share.  I am trying to gather ideas.  Thanks. :)

    In my flowers I'm having roses, cymbidium orchids, and ranunculus.  My inspiration pic is below.  I also plan to have a wide crystal band around the stem.

    Thanks for the replies so far ladies.

    A follow-up question:   Are (were) the flowers you are using (or used) the flowers that are(were)  in season for your wedding?  Thanks.

    I think that ranunculus aren't usually in season in the summer, I believe they're a spring flower, but it didn't make the price go up to have them.  Before choosing my florist, I got a quote from another one that wanted to charge about $75 more for the ranunculus.  The roses and cymbidium orchids should be in season.

    I LOVE peonies!  They are so gorgeous.  If I didn't find the ranunculus, I would have definitely gone for peonies.
