    The decisions never cease!! I need to choose my flowers now and I have no idea about colour... Or style of bouquet. All I know is that none of the choices my WC sent to me jump out at me.

    Anyway... My dress is a little knee length casual white sundress, my BMs are wearing chocolate brown linen with turquoise necklaces, the GMs are wearing chocolate brown linen pants with white shirts. Lots of brown and white. I feel like I really need a "punch" of colour, but what?

    I had thought that maybe I could go with more turquoise to match the necklaces, but I guess blue isn't really a natural colour for too many flowers!! I also love pink and coral, but I've been warned not to have too many colours.

    I guess I just want something natural and casual... Any ideas from any of you who are good with colours

    Thanks!

            OOh that is a touch one.I do like the thought of a really pale pink thrown in the mix!

              Orange would have been my suggestion! That would really pop... here is some inspiration!

              I originally was going to do orange.. with turquoise BM dresses - hence why I have the photos handy!

                I love the second bouquet, Amarillis! The pinks and oranges would look really great with the chocolate brown...and not too formal.

                  YEh... I think it would lend more of a tropical feel!

                    I like the pinks and oranges above.. but, if you like the idea of the blue and brown; which I think is a very elegant color combinatin as well - I found these pics:
