:Phishfolk: I would really be interested in finding out some suggestions for wedding flowers that are full of scent! Would you mind giving me a helping hand? Also, I have to highlight that I've considered a wedding done in pale pink!

I eloped so excuse my ignorance about planning a wedding . . . but do you really want scent? It seems that pleasurable scent perception is relative, and risky.

(see HappieKamper's note about scent being totally subjective) :lol:

heavily scented flowers can be overwhelming when used in bulk in an enclosed space.

as for pale pink flowers...it depends on the season, but some good choices are peonies (if your budget will allow, or used in moderation with a mix of other flowers), garden roses, larkspur, hydrangea, tulips, dahlias, hypernicum, cymbidium orchids, dendrobium orchids, calla lillies (usually a deeper rose color, but they look great with other pink flowers and add dimension), gerbera daisies, sweet pea, freesia, phlox, wax flower.

some of those are better for filler, some are big showy blooms that mix well with other blooms and filler, some are better as stand-alone flowers.

IMO, flowers are a great way to add touches of pink to a wedding without it looking too pretty princess playroom-y. i like it best when it's balanced with more typically 'manly' shades, like cream and brown. unless your guy LOVES the color pink, he'd probably appreciate the balance, too :)

i would suggest that unless your wedding is outdoors, go with a handful of a scented bloom as an accent as opposed to your main flower(s). you wouldn't want any of your guests to have to make an early departure due to a reaction to your flowers.

They may not have much scent, but I think gerbera daisies are beautiful!

They come in all sorts of colours, too!

Have fun planning your wedding - Tyler and I both totally enjoyed the whole process from start to finish - it was such a lovely gathering of friends and family to share in a celebration of love... Enjoy!!!

Thanks for your suggestions and I know that if the wedding takes part in a space that is closed the effect will be unpleasant, but I am thinking of an outdoor wedding, when I ask for your suggestions! :jump:
