We're having a beachy wedding. The ceremony is at a park on the beach and the reception is at a surf club on the Gold Coast right on the beach. Our theme colours have been yellow and blue. I really, really, really want franigpani bouquets to suit the beach theme, and to tie in the yellow colour, with blue bridesmaids dresses. The table runners and chair sashes were going to be yellow, with blue noodlebox favours filled with lollies. We were going to have one of the following centrepieces, or something similar.
I've spoken with a bunch of florists who say we can't get frangipanis due to the season (9 October 2010 is the wedding day). They also say they bruise easily and are fairly hard to work with. I've looked into silk flowers but they'd end up costing $400+ anyway, and I'm not too fussed on keeping the bouquet as I'm not going to drag them out in a couple years to look at anyway.
Now I'm thinking I should scrap the frangipani idea and go with something else. I love gerberas and tulips, and I've been told gerberas are easier to get and easier to work with. We could even go to the markets and DIY. But how will that fit in with the theme? What about centrepieces? I'm confused. I'm so clueless when it comes to flowers.
