    Hi there,

    My bridesmaids will have blue (Pool) dresses. I will try and match this color throughout with the decorations. I will also have an accent color of chocolate (or esresso). What kind of flowers should I use for:

    1. bouquet
    2. men's boutoniere
    3. decorations

    Should I attempt a flower that has blue or do you think a cala lili would be the best option?

      I think any white or cream-colored flower would look great against blue and chocolate! Calla lillies are really pretty. Roses would be good too.

        Thanks for the advise. I do really like Calla lillies. My next question would be, does this look ok on the guys shirts? They will most likely wear white or cream colored shirts. What would they use for the boutoniere? Sorry, this is just not my area of expertise. I need all the help I can get!

          This was our color scheme as well. We went with tropical flowers and it turned out beautiful. You can see pics at Guy Kitchens under portfolios-destination wedding- dominican.

            my friend used your color scheme and she had white calla lillies, roses, and blue hydrangeas in the center pieces...it was gorgeous! with the blue dresses, calla lillies would be pretty...you can even have brown ribbon around the stems

              Turquoise blue is my color and I stressed about this for a long time. Ultimately I decided I'm going to go with cream calla lilies. I'm going to bring in the blue color in other ways. For my bouquet I plan to wrap a turquoise blue satin ribbon around the bouquet. I think it's going to look beautiful. I love cream calla lilies.

              It depends what theme you're going for. I'm a minimalist and like clean simple lines, modern, sleek looks. That's why I think calla's will work best for me. If you're going for tropical & fun then I've seen orange or pink look really stunning against the blue, not my personal style but I do think it looks great.

                I agree that cream or white calla lilies (or orchids) would look beautiful. Mini calla lillies would look great for the guys' boutonnieres. The best thing about large calla lillies is that the bridesmaids can carry one each if you want to keep costs down. Add blue or brown accents with ribbon. Centerpieces could incorporate brown through some stems/branches if you're going that direction, or blue hydrangeas if in season/available at your location.
