    I've been doing a google search for different types of flowers I can look at in regards to my bouquet. Strangely enough, I've not been coming up with a site that has a large range....just a few photos here and there of already-arranged bouquets that aren't really up my alley.

    I'm liking lillies (calla, stargazer etc) and frangipanis et al. Wanted to see what else was out there though. Keeping deep-red roses in the back of my mind also.

    Anyone know of sites that have like an A-Z list of flowers with photos?

    Are you designing your own bouquet? If you're using a a florist I bet they would have some sites/suggestions for you. I'm horrible with flowers, my Mom did my wedding bouquet and it was all flowers from her garden. I have to say that I LOVE how a simple clutch of calla lillies looks! Here's a link to some gorgeous boquets and they name all the flowers that where used.

    Thanks Alison and EB :hug: !

    Did you sign up to The Knot when you were planning yours and Aubs wedding? It's a handy site! I had a look through the Knots gallery a few days ago and there werent any bouquets that made me go "Yep!"

    Think I'm gonna go simple, either lillies or deep red roses. I just have to let the wedding planner know what flowers I like and go back and forth with her and the florist. Might leave the 'wedding' out of my google search for flowers.

    I didn't use them, but a lot of the brides I work with have and really liked the resources. Our planning consisted of making a reservation for dinner and clearing use of the town park for the ceremony :lol:

    Sorry I don't know of any sites for you. I will say that a lot of florists sites are kind of deceptive and they end up sending what they have, maybe not what you want. I would try and chose flowers that are easy to get and even better, in season. I would try a couple of local florists and see what their connections are (some do certain flowers well). I agree with keeping it simple. A few really nice flowers can look just as elegant as some of the other more exotic ones. My parents, among other things, owned a florist. They were the type that would go out of their way to make wedding flowers special. That is the kind of person you need.
