I'm excited we can check something else off the list!

The last time I met with the florist, she told me she thought ranunculus were only available in the spring. She was going to check to make sure, so I'm hoping she's wrong. If not, I think I found another option for my bouquet, minus the overpowering amount of ribbon:
I know dahlias are fall flowers, and I'm almost considering using these even if she can get ranunculus. Dahlias remind me of the garden that Adam proposed to me in, because they were all over the place!
Which do you prefer, dahlias or ranunculus? Or is it ranunculi if it's plural?
Bouquet from here.
But I think they'll look great at our reception! I guess we could use the candlesticks for the unity candle lighting too... but our church doesn't allow unity candles. Oh well.
I think we'll use the vase to hold the white branches for our guestbook/wish tree, although I think the opening at the top might be too small. I guess I'll have to try it out and see. I'm hoping our tree will look similar to this with a little less crystal and smaller tags. A few crystals hanging on branches are fine, but this is a little over the top for me.
How do you feel about the guestbook tree idea? I just want to get away from the regular guestbook, because really what do you do with a book of names after the wedding?
Top photo is my own. Wish tree photo (and a how-to) from here.
This is going to be one of them. And the best part, I heard it on one of my favorite shows, Dirty Sexy Money!
The song is called "Somebody Loved" by The Weepies.
Video found here.
And they are on sale! Do you think I should buy them?
Shoes by Ras at Neiman Marcus.
What do you think?
Headbands! In the same exact colors as the dresses! Meant to be? I thought so!
All photos are my own.
By the way, I'm liking this inspiration board idea. Maybe I should make one for my own wedding sometime soon! Especially since I'll be meeting with decorators when I go home for Thanksgiving! I'll work on that.
And maybe I can throw in a little color, like this.
I'm hoping with all the details above, people won't notice the free throw line on the gym floor below! I think the tables will help disguise that as well.
Lantern photos from WeddingFanatic. I cannot remember where the chandelier picture is from...but if you know I'd be happy to post the source.
Anemones, dahlias, delphinium, orchids, hydrangeas, and ranunculus. Of course, I would want them all in varying shades of a plum/purple color, if possible. Here are a couple examples of the flowers in the right colors.
Orchids, ranunculus, hydrangeas (please ignore the stephanotis in the middle) and dahlias. I hope the bouquet would look something like this pink one as far as size, shape, and it's also where the idea of mixing flowers came from. I realize none of the flowers are the same.
Although I also love the idea of having a bouquet of just ranunculus, they are by far my favorite flower! Something like this bouquet in shades of purple, minus the peonies, and smaller (you'll have to use your imagination!).
Most pictures from The Knot. I can't remember where I found the pink bouquet, sorry!
