I had always been an orchid lover. I adore how exotic and delicate looking, yet hardy, the flower is.
But I've discovered so many flowers since wedding planning. My favorites have been the fluffy looking Peony, the Amenome and the Cockscomb. I'm hoping that whichever florist I decide to go with can make a go of these new loves in my life. It would be delightful to have fushia Cockscomb, mixed with white and light pink Peonies and maybe white Amemone.
I'm just fascinated with the texture of the squiggly flower.
Isn't this the most beautiful flower you've ever seen!
To me, this represents the "Black Tie" element of the wedding.
However if by some fluke I'm not able to have my beloved Peony, I've found that the Cabbage Rose, a Tulip/Rose hybrid (don't know the official name) and the Cabbage Rose, would be fantastic alternatives.
I had came across a site that offers the fluffy flower outside of the normal blooming time that has been quoted to me by many florist. Yea!!!
