Flowers



















Lily of the Valley
, Peonies and really any white flower are at the top of my list right now, but there are so many options!

I do know I want to incorporate a lot of green leaves and foliage if possible, which coincidentally is a symbol of "wedded love." how sweet.

Dahlia's
are in-season during October and are the the "traditional autumn flower." But I think they're a tad to colorful.

According to the Wedding Gazette these types of flowers are easy to get all year long as well, so I will consider, (although not sure what some of these are) :

Baby's Breath, Bachelor's Buttons, Carnations, Gardenias, Gladiolus', Lily of the Valley, Orchids, Roses and Stephanotis.

And last but not least, call me crazy, but I like these paper flowers and think they would add a nice touch to certain areas in the Met Building....

I love the white flowers and contrast of the dark green leaves. It will look so beautiful. The tissue paper flowers are a great idea, although the other flowers are a totally different color shade - one is pastel, one is fall colors. But either way, extra color never hurts!!

I'd probably choose tissue paper that coincided with the wedding colors, but thanks for pointing out!
