BUT now that i posted my planning thread and decided to use my dark red/burgundy shoes and purse - i think i am making a mistake - it is the ONLY place i would have the fuschia/hot pink -weird, right?

 

i think i should go dark BUT will dark red /burgundy flowers look weird if it's not roses? do orchids even come that dark?

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:

Hawaii Orchids - Sharry Baby

 

It might get you started?

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.
