What kind/color of flowers are these?

I few weeks ago, The Knot had this bouquet on their homepage.  I LOVE the coral/orange-ish flowers in this bouquet. I can't figure out what color to call them (tangerine? coral? orange?) and what type of flower they are.  I'm hoping to find a similar silk version I can buy.

    I am definitely not an expert at all, but my best guess is coral garden roses or some other rose variation!

    They almost look like roses but it is hard to tell with that picture.

    I agree that they look like roses, but I think you could also use carnations and get a similar look for less.

    I'm actually using a similar color--my florist refers to them as coral or salmon pink. We are using peonies, but the ones in the pic are a type of rose (don't remember the name, but they're expensive!). SInce you're using silk flowers though, that shouldn't be a problem. :) Spray roses also come in coral, but they are small.

    It looks like and english gareden rose, Abraham Derby, David Austin rose to be more specific.  I would call that a coral orange color.  You may luck into someone growing them in your area if that is what they are. They are a popular garden choice and really hardy. I have hot pink ones all the way up here in my garden in the summer. 

    Edit: I meant Darby rose not Derby!
