growing flowers for a wedding!

Santa Cruz, CA(Zone 9b)


Has anyone ever grown flowers for a wedding around here? Have any tips? Im going to grow some flowers for for my sisters wedding on June 29th. She loves lime greens with saturated oranges, yellows, red, pinks. I think we should put a little dark blue too. I've never gardened with a deadline before! Here are some things i'm considering.

Delphinium - wild form
papaver 'falling in love'
Bells of Ireland?
german catch fly 'red'
coreopsis tinctoria
cheirianthus x allionii
cosmos 'orange'
red sweet peas
anchusa azurea?
baby tomatillos
