I like the ideas you listed.  Groom in navy and white striped tie.  Dark red bouquet for you.  Your bms can can a smaller version of your bouquet.  Or maybe even a different type of flower and smaller.

I love it! For flowers, what about red calla lilies? are they too dark?

You could even get them wrapped in striped ribbon to match the ties!


Fall is also really fun for nontraditional floral elements like wheat or berries……

here are a couple ideas!

I am using a dark red for my wedding on October 1st along with purple and gold. I am thinking of using black magic roses in my bouquet along with some purple and white flowers. Maybe you can change up your bridesmaids bouquets and put some white flowers along with red flowers, then they would be a little different from yours. My sister is going to be my attendant and is going to wear a red dress, so her bouquet will be some white flowers along with a few red roses in there, so that they pop.

As for questioning your colors, a lot of brides do that. I think that is normal. I think your colors sound nice and I am sure you will come up with great ideas.

Date twin! You colors sound really pretty and I like the what you’ve chosen for your wedding party to wear. Navy striped tie will bring in the color from the Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses, and red flowers will add the pop of cranberry you want 🙂

My only caution is to choose a tie that is more “wedding” than “work” appropriate. Yay!


For your groom, how about going with all white/ivory to match you and your dress? And then he should have a flower to match your bouquet. This will set you off as a couple while the BMs/GMs would go together as well.
