When creating a flower arrangement first choose a color palate, I am using pink and white for the bridal brunch. I am using hydrangeas, tulips, gerber daisies and alstroemerias, they are in season.

The attendant at whole foods was amazing! I told her my color scheme was pink and white, she found these gorgeous gerber daisies in the back and they were only $6 for 10 flowers!

I bought the hydrangeas from the local florist, they were expensive $5 each and I bought 6, $30 total which is most of my budget but I like how full they make a bouquet look.
