Floral Forum I

So Sak and I got an email from his aunt last night asking us about our flower ideas. Well, truthfully, we didn't have any flower ideas! But after sitting down and talking/researching, etc. We can now say we have some ideas:

What we'll need:
-1 bouquet for penga
-1 bouquet for all-in-one bridesmaid-sister Danni
-6 corsages for Saka-mom, Penga-mom, and our four grandmothers (and possibly more for other helpers!)
-Centerpieces/Ceremony decorations

Here's some inspiration boards slides we put together for bouquets:

My favorites are the hibiscus bouquets and the top right bouquet of red and white orchids. Saka's favorites are the hibiscus and the roses/ferns on the bottom right. The problem with the hibiscus though, is that it is fake. Real hibiscus apparently don't make for good bouquets. Tragic!

From this exercise, I think I want something both red and white, and with somewhat of a tropical feel to it. Ferns are a nice touch, I think.

Did anyone else encounter a flower they loved, but for one reason or another, couldn't use (in real form, at least)?
