Originally had thought of having gerbera's for my wedding flowers but I remember seeing in a wedding magazine this beautiful bunch of pink and white oriental lilies. Once I saw those I thought they would like perfect against my dress and also the rest of the bridal party. The entire bridal party had quite similar bouquets.

My bouquet was round and had a holder at the back.

Around the pink oriental lilies there were small bits of green fern and spread throughout the bouquet was white feathers and sparkling diamontes. The Bridesmaids had a smaller round bouquet but they had the stems covered with a silver ribbon and they just had some green fern around the outside
The junior bridesmaids had a smaller version of what the bridesmaids had except they had black ribbon instead of silver.

With any flower make sure that they do not stain the dresses. Try and avoid rubbing them against your dress. After the wedding my junior bridesmaid had a few small stains on the front of their dress. Always remember to hold your flowers down at your belly button especially when your walking down the aisle as no-one can see your face!

Choose flowers that will be in season at the time of your wedding and avoid having specialty flowers that need to be imported in from another country. I had decided to have everyone quite similar but in this day and age your whole party can have different flowers or colours. It really is a personal choice.
