You should discuss the supply & availability of the above flowers you are considering for your wedding with a Real Local Florist......whether you order thru them or on-line. A Realy Florist will advise you on the types & colors of flowers available. (For instance, in Pennsylvania Lily of the Valley is generally available for about 2 weeks in May -- may 1 thru May 15. After that it MIGHT be available -- but will be costly and quality will be suspect. While on-line ordering may seem easy, do you really want to trust your once-in-a-life time wedding flwoer experience to a totally on-line site, where human contact is minimal? Just my 2 cents.
