I gave up long ago trying to decide which one is my favorite flower; I was voluntarily surrounded by hydrangeas at my wedding, there are always some sort of tulips or roses at home, I tattooed anemones (or poppies) on my arm, bougainvilleas are my source of happiness reminding me of endless summer days, I always buy orchids as special gifts and even though I can never find them anywhere I constantly find myself mesmerized by peonies – so yeah, there’s no choosing one. So what do you do when you can’t choose one? Get the perfect arrangement that has ALL of the most beautiful flowers around and not just on your wedding day but all day everyday.
For me, the perfect bouquet should contain some (or better yet, all) of these: Anemones, Peonies, Garden Roses, Dahlias, Ranunculus (which literally means ‘the wedding flower’ in Turkish) and Cymbidium Orchids or Lilacs as colorful flowers, Succulents as green flowers, Silver Brunias, Tallow Berries, Scabiosa Pods, Dusty Millers and/or Hederas for garnishing and finally Seeded Eucalyptus or if you are going for a super rustic bouquet Wheats as finishing touches.
