Flower Power!!!


This past week, I came down with something. What it is, I do not know... allergies, sinuses, flu, cold, viral/bacterial infection... I am hoping its the run of the mill cold with a mix of allergies. And since i sound stuffy and can't really smell, i figure what better time than to brainstorm FLOWERS!!!!!!!!

As most of my close friends know, one of my fave colors that has become almost a signature color for me is Yellow.

Now it seems very likely that the color for my wedding will probably be a similar light yellow/butter yellow/soft yellow/champagne/metallic gold trims broad palette. (This isn't 100% yet) So what kind of flowers should I consider in sticking with this theme?

I have considered both yellows and whites. I love the thought of something romantic as filling a basket full of baby's breathes with some greens and using that as centerpieces. I want simple but dramatic. Laid back and beautiful.

Here are a few i found in both yellow and white... I'd love some feedback and the ones that you like and why?

The one thing I'd like to know too is - which flowers to stay away from? A lot of wedding sites discuss the visual but don't mention if the smell is good or bad. Usually most flowers smell nice, but i know that not all of them do. I know some flowers smell can be pretty strong or even offensive. Also, some flowers are just not meant for longevity once cut from its stem... Any suggestions for good pretty nice smelling flowers? Any flowers to steer clear of?

  1. Have you put any thought into Daisy's? They're really simple, cheap, and look really nice.

  2. You can get roses in a billion shades of yellow, and mixing all those shades of yellow would be beautiful, I think! You could do a bouquet of multiple shades of yellow roses, or yellow and white roses, or a mix of flower types. I also love yellow freesia -- it smells like Froot Loops!

  3. I am partial to the calla lilies... I had white ones in my bouquet and I loved them! So beautiful and fresh... and I remember the scent was beautiful!
