    Not sure if I'm posting in the right place. If I'm not, I'm sorry!

    I'm trying to find some cheap bouquets made with purple calla lillies and either ivory calla lillies or roses.

    Does anyone know where I could look. Seen some on ebay, but they are a bit expensive and me and H2B are trying to keep costs down.

    Thanks for any help!

    Are you after real or artificial flowers? (If looking on eBay I'm guessing artificial!)

    I've used a local person my Mom's friends have used. She's not a business but done flower arranging for 20+ years. I'm not good with flower names I'm afraid, but we have had 2 bridesmaids' bouquets, my bouquet (like Bridesmaids but bigger), 2 corsages for the 2 Mom's and another 12 rose button holes, all real flowers for a total of £116 I think. She is based in Tipton though, not sure where exactly your location is but of you can find someone independent who does it as a hobby that may help keep costs down xx

    I'm looking for artificial because I want to keep them after.

    That's a good deal! Will look forward to seeing the pictures when your weddings gone by. I'm about a 10 minute drive from Tipton. Don't know if you know Woodcross? I live round that area. Will have a look round anyway. Thanks!

    I don't know Woodcross, where's it by? Chris said it rings a bell! I might know it as something else! Hehe! xx

    I had artificial flowers. I got them from Bloom as individual stems and then made my own bouquet with them. You could also try Dunelm.

    Here they are after flying half way around the world and back at our reception. They are now looking fabulous in a vase in our house :)

    Initially I would never have considered artificial flowers, and definitely not roses in these colours, but once we had chosen to go abroad and chosen my dress they were a perfect match. Funny how things turn out!

    And here they are on our wedding day after being carried in my suitcase!
