    so, my colours are going to be orange and blue. the bridesmaids dresses are Dessy, sapphire blue (see below) and theyll have orange bouquets for catholic ceremony, and maybe orange parasols for the civil ceremony outside:

     

    then i saw this cake and kind of loved it! but its not ordered yet so thats flexible

     

    Thing is, i saw this centrepice and fell in love with it - it looks so warm and tropical to me. I kind of want it "as it is" as i think its perfect. but i guess the pink and yellow might make it a bit random. i wouldnt have a pink tablecloth, i guess id go for white.  but where else would i bring in the blue (other than BM dresses which are already bought)

     

     

    i just dont know how to pull it all together! does it matter if the only blue is for the dresses? im lost! thanks =)

      You could bring the blue in with napkins, napkin rings, your favors, menu cards, anything else that will sit on the table. Or...paper lanterns, or other form of lighting? Do the have flowers that are that color blue?

        blue flowers seem really limited to be honest and the ones that exist are a lot lighter. but i hadnt thought of napkins etc though so that could work, thanks!!

         

        or a blue table runner on a white table cloth? but maybe that'd be too much concentrated colour in the centre.

         

        i could maybe bring a touch of blue on the cake too...blue and orange ribbons with orange flowers. mmmmmm

         

        i feel a bit overwhelmed!

          hmm..this is a hard one! It would be hard to tie the blue in with the pink, orange, and yellow flowers, however the blue would look good with each of the colors separately. 

           

          What if you did the same centerpiece, with same flowers but different colors? Like keep the orange but do white instead of pink/yellow..

           

          I don't think you need to add too much blue into other decorations. My BM dresses are a mint green, but most of my decorations are neutral colors.

           

          Good luck!

            You could do fabricks in blue. Dress, table clothes, maybe chair covers. And the centerpiece that you love could be in your colors like different colors of orange... just an idea.
