The deal is there's a bride that wants this exact bouquet. This is actually a teleflora ad, but of course, they don't actually sell this bouquet they've so conveniently pictured in their ad. And once a bride sees something like this, you know she is determined to have it.
I'm looking for a filler flower to replace what's shown here. They're manipulated a lilac but we all know lilacs don't grow exactly like this, at least none that I've seen.
Can you think of any other filler flower that would be this purple color and still give an open and airy look to the bouquet. I don't think wax flower is going to work exactly as she wants.
It was actually for a friend of mine who's doing the bouquet. Someone sent me a link to a type of hydrangea that looks to be identical to the flowers in the photos. http://www.joycreek.com/294-004D4.htm She was going to phone the wholesaler and see if she could get this.
