Flower recommendations for theme colours? HELP!

Recommended Posts

Hi Ladies

 

I sort of started the planning process backwards by buying BM dresses first (I saw them and fell in love with the!) They are brightly coloured Maxi dresses (I will post a picture when my camera cable decides to work!) and have loads and loads of colours mainly purples, teals and blues, but also green, white and yellow.

 

Thinking that I could just pic from the variety of colours in the dress as theme colours - I thought I would be fine!

 

So I want to do Teal, Plum, Lavender with Ivory as the colours - but I am stuck about flowers then! There are heaps of choices in Plum, Lavender and Ivory - but what am I going to do with Teal??

 

Does anyone know of Teal flowers? shitfan.gif

 

Any advice or opinions would be a massive help! :)

I don't know of any teal flowers but you could have the florist tie your bouquet with teal ribbon. You could also use teal on any of your non-flower decorations!

I'm still debating the fresh vs artifical flowers...

 

I'm getting married in Fiji, who have amazing frangipanis (not right for my colour scheme) and beautiful orchids (which I am more then happy to use) but apart from that they are a little mixed in quality... Which is why I am considering artifical flowers...

 

Ginaynl - I never even though ribbons! I'm such a wedding novice :) what a great suggestion! :)

The ribbon idea is definitely a good one especially if you want to incorporate teal into your color scheme! I think you should really look into using artificial -- I did this with our wedding and it was one of the best decisions we made. It allows you to have total creative control of your vision and you know exactly what you're gonna end up with so you can really coordinate the rest of your decor with your flowers/colors.

 

If you contact one of the artificial flower vendors, I'm sure they could provide you with lots of ideas according to your color preference. I personally used Roberta Wands of Plumerias Wedding Flower Boutique and spent about 1 month+ emailing her back and forth about my ideas -- she was so kind, patient and helpful throughout the creative process and really worked with my budget. If you're interested here's her website addy:

And before I forget, the flowers she uses are top quality and look and feel so real!!! Even my mom and aunt, who are flower snobs who at first hated the idea of me using artificial, LOVED my bouquet and all the other flowers I ordered from her (BM bouquets, corsages, and bouts). She also has the frangipanis and tons of orchids -- lots can be made using your colors rolleyes.gif

 

Otherwise there are lots of flower vendors suggested by other girls on the forum! Hope that helps wink.gif

I was told that your flowers don't have to match the colors. You can definately use a ribbon to do this. Think about it...so many girls have blue as their color, & there are very few blue flowers. If you choose flowers that are a nice contrasting color sometimes that makes your other clors pop more.
