Soooo until I found THE dress last week, I just knew I wanted to carry a brooch bouquet. My dress had other plans she is just begging for flowers. I want to carry peonies, and have my BMs carry carnations...before you make a face check this out ( https://lovellabridal.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2012/08/5-ombre-purple-carnation-balls-for-a-wedding.jpg ) I'm seriously considering having each girl carry a different shade of purple. The fact that carnations are inexpensive is a plus, but the are absolutely lovely.
I would even use them for centerpieces.
So my question is this, do you think is a no-no to use carnations at a wedding, I'm going for formal feel. I want to say I don't care if people think I'm being cheap...but there's a part of me that cares a tiny bit. What do you guys think?
