    I think you are fine as well. I used pink, orange and blue as my colors, but brown could easily have been in there as well. So you can continue using brown and blue and use pink and orange flowers, with a blue ribbon or something.

      Thanks for all the links!

      I can't do coral...I just can't. I don't have anything specifically against coral, it's just really not "me." I don't even think I own any pastel colored clothing! For flowers I really want something with this kinda vibe:

      I found mummergirl's gallery link fairly inspiring b/c there were a lot of "crazy" but beautiful bouquets in there. I'm wondering now if I should do something like the bouquet above, but with blue? Maybe that's too much and I should just go with a chocolate ribbon :S

      Carly, I looked at your photos, and your wedding looking great, but you actually integrated all your colors really well. If I'm going to have lots of colors in my bouquets, should I try to incorporate those colors elsewhere as well?

        I think that pink that is in your picture you just posted would be great with chocolate and blue! I would do less green though if possible, just my personal opinion. And probably with a blue ribbon.

        I don't think you need to incorporate colors from your bouquet elsewhere, but if you want to you could. Originally, my colors were blue and orange, I only incorporated pink b/c finding JUST blue and orange things was challenging. So it's all a personal preference. You can use pink as your flowers and no where else and it would be completely fine.

          ok, so i just did a really quick and poor quality bouquet photoshops. I had to use a laptop trackpad, so just pretend they look real.

          Here's the same bouquet with brown and blue ribbon...does it look weird?

          In this image the "blue flowers" were actually yellow, and the dress was white, but I wanted to test the color combo (I would do less green). I'm not sure I can get blue flowers, but it's worth looking into I think.

            based on pictures of the bouquet, you may want to match the chroma (intensity) of the blue with the fuscia- aqua with a punch, and not soft, baby blue.

            You can use blue ribbon, but I would get rid of the brown ribbon. ALso, lose the blue flowers. They don't match the palette of the bouquet.

              The colors seem to be fine with me and seem to be contemporary.
