"These bold, bushy flowers have a history as dramatic as their appearance. Conquistadors found the dahlia in the gardens of the Aztecs and caused a sensation when they brought the flower back to Europe. As the dahlia gained popularity, the pursuit of its potato like tubers was conducted with intrigue and deception -- dahlia tubers were reportedly stolen even from the garden of the Empress Josephine!"
Dahlias are a bit of an obsession for me right now. They are gorgeous and romantic yet still remain playful. Dahlias can make a special addition to any floral arrangement., especially a Bridal bouquet!

Dahlias are beautiful in Brides and Bridesmaids bouquets but can be a little LARGE for boutonnieres but can be perfect for corsages, talk to your florist about incorporating them onto a jeweled wristlet like the ones shown below.
If the dahlias are a little too large for your boutonnieres, a nice substitution is button mums.
They come in a variety of colors and are extremely hardy and long lasting.
