    ok, so i have no idea about what kind of flowers i want. The girls are wearing cornflower blue, so i was thinking a blue and purple/lilac theme. Do you think any other colors should be in there? Also what kind of flowers. My coordinator keeps asking me what kind of flowers and all i know are the colors! help please! any pics would be great too! thanks so much!

        Try using theknot.com or just google the colors you have and look at different pictures. I'm sure you will find different colors that go well with the blue and lilac. Save pictures of the ones you like then you can show your florist and they can let you know what flowers they are. This is what I had to do as I know nothing about flowers except that they are pretty...lol
        Hope this helps :)

          What about adding some green in there too? I think that green orchids would look amazing against the blue. What about white callas too?

              What about blue hydrangeas? Not sure if they would be available in your location or not, but they are generally blue/lilac together.

                Hi Beth,

                I was having the biggest headache with my flowers as well. My colors are blue and green so you can imagine i was limited. if you would like me to send you my flower ideas with pictures that I am using for my wedding so you can get some ideas just PM me.

                Cheers,
                Nicole

                  My colors are blue and green also and I think I'm going to stick with a mix of white flowers and try to get some blue hydrangeas or something similar if they're available. I've seen some great bouquets on the knot so hopefully they can match something similar.

                    I'm going with blue and purple for my colors as well, but more darker shades than you. Hydranges and Lisianthus are good purples, as well as just some light purple roses. It sounds like you're wanting more lighter shades of color.

                    Here are the darker shades of blue and purple you can get, this is my bouquet filled with roses, delphiniums, hydrangeas, and lisianthus

                    Here are a couple shades of blue delphinims I found. And I know you can get delphiniums in Mexico b/c I'm having them in my bouquet

                    These are hydranges, however I do know that hydrangeas don't stand up against the heat well at all and aren't usually recommended in Mexico.

                    I would just google some of these flower names and you will get all sorts of images and color shades. Also you can go to another wedding website and search photos of bouquets by color to give some great ideas.
