    I was inspired by this centerpiece with red pincushion protea (found it somewhere on this forum, or maybe on theknot?_ as my colors are red an turqouise/aqua, and this is pretty close (tho a little orange for me):

    Of course I have no clue if it is available in the Riviera Maya area...

    Then, I wanted this for a bouquet with red calla lilies (sp?):

    And I want a chuppah with 4 flower arrangements on them - perhaps with red and orange calla lilies, red protea pincushions, red epidendrum (they look like:

    and some other tropical flowers in this flower range? Or something like this bouquet?:

    To put on the chuppah like this (maybe a little less flowy and only white, no blue:

    Is this too much going on - or can I tie the bouquet to the centerpieces with the flowers on the chuppah? I originally wanted red orchids but apparently they are impossible to get in Mexico. I don't know if the same is true of red pincushion protea.

            I think they look great. And if you're concerned, just use a bit of each flower everywhere.

              I don't thnk it's too much. As long as it looks cohesive and there is something tying it all together (such as the color), it will look great!

                Looks lovely. Great combo of colors. The blue and red looks very tropical without being too bright or in your face. I really like it. I don't think it is too much at all. Looks good!

                    Thanks all. Now I just hope my WC at Al Cielo can find the flowers!
