Hi Livvy, this is what I'm looking at having for my BM, they're Calla Lillies. You can get them in all different colours.

Also, I was a BM for my mum and she had Tulips which were really pretty as well and got lots of comments.

Try doing a Google image search with your colours and flowers - that's what I did while trying to figure out what to have.

Go to google images and search "Pink lisianthus" - they are soft and romantic IMHO

Also have a look at this site - there are a lot of roses but some gorgeous alternatives too.

Hope that helps a little smile.gif

I've been hunting for you - roses aren't your only option!

Peonies are lovely (I know there are a few roses in here - but IMO they're not the feature)

Or orchids...

I know you said no roses - but these, with some dodda vine and some lovely soft foliage could be sweet...

This could be striking against the burgundy dress (I personally would have the flowers contrasting to the BM dresses, so they don't get 'lost')

eep sorry about the size of the last one...

Contradicting everything I just said...

Sigh... I wish I could plan my wedding all over again!

You can find some really lovely cymbidium orchids in burgundy, pink and white colours. They come in the most amazing array of colours, and are very romantic! Some are even fragrant, and they look lovely with one flower in a bridesmaid's hair.

Do a Google image search for "cymbidium bouquet" and see what you come up with! You'll find heaps. smile.gif

Good luck!

This is what I had for my BM's. My bouquet had the same phal orchids plus some anthuriums, greenery and vines.
