      I know I've seen the really dark red orchids...but I have no idea if they'd be available, fresh, for your wedding...I'm googling...but haven't found much as far as origin yet.

      I have also seen some really gorgeous dark red, almost black, callas...what about those?

      Here is a website that I found...for Hawaiian orchids...

      Orchids and Orchid Plants, Tropical Flowers from Hawaii's Premiere Orchid Growers, Orchid Care and Growing Orchid Tips, Orchids Wholesale and Tropical Flowers Wholesale
      There are quite a few red/cherry color variations under the Cattleya section...

      These are really unique looking also:

      It might get you started?

        i love callas but not for my bouquet - i want something a little 'messier' KWIM?

          I think you should go with the dark flowers but I dont' know much about what flowers come in the dark color.

            What about black magic or baccarra roses? Those are almost a maroon/burgundy color.

              I'm pretty sure you can get orchids that dark. I know you can get the black magic roses that are super dark.

              I would call the florist ASAP. Sometimes it takes 2 weeks or more to special order flowers, and you are getting close missy!

              She/he might also be able to offer some suggestions.

              I think you would still be ok with red. I don't know about the pinks with the burgundy.

              If BDW has taught you nothing else, it is that you go for what you want!

                I don't know much about flowers but I don't think it would look weird if it's not roses. I think the darker would look better than the fuschia/pink ones, but it's a nice bouquet.
