    I'm sure some of you has had orchids for their bouquet or centerpieces. Did you get a choice in color? How did they look?

    I can't decide on my wedding colors... I wanted hot pink, but my fiance said no. I'm now down to turquoise or green. If turquoise... I would like my wedding party to have white|pink orchids, same with my bouquet. If green, I would like the wedding party to have white|pink orchids and my bouquet to be green and white orchids, same with the centerpieces.

    What are your thoughts or what have you used?

      Hi im off to see the florist at a wedding fair in the morning.She called last night and she has found three different orchids for me to choose from.I asked her to find white ones with hot pink centers.The girls are having artificial orchids,well one placed in a hot pink wire thing that looks like a flower stem she is making the petal bit into the shape of a starfish.Im going to see if i can go with the silk i would love real orchids though.She is making my mum and pauls wrist corsarges in the white with hot pink as well and Paul is having a hot pink wire thingy made as his button hole.Oh and finally im having stems placed around three small fishbowls with some green leaf and acrylic and a blue lite that goes in water.I hope that helps.
      I do think that if you get good orchids they do look real and likewise it hard to tell if the real ones are real!!! ill update tomorrow xx

        Why is your h2b saying no to the hot pink.Im doing hot pink and the turquoise.
        The men/boys are wearing pale blue linen.Amy is in turquoise(pauls 12 yr old daughter) Chloe is wearing a white empire tutu dress still to be bought with a very small amount of turquoise.I have hot pink platforms and my table centres are mainly hot pink.You could do smaller elements of hot pink.Kinda slip it in there wink wink

          I'm working on it!!!
          For some reason, he doesn't like it too too much. I want my bridesmaid to wear hot pink dresses. I think they guys will wear grey suits and would have a white|pink orchid boutonniere...
          I guess the reception area would have a little bit of pink in the decorations, but not that much still! I'd like to incorporate a bit of turquoise... but have it mostly pink and white...
          If I loose this battle... it'll be turquoise. Which I'm okay with too!

          I've looked at the thread with the bouquets... and lots of them had orchids, so I'm assuming it wouldn't be hard to get them in Mexico.
