Im having another dilemma now, booo. Now I know why people hire wedding planners lol. Ok so my colors are coral/pink, and ivory. But every freaking florist I go to cannot seem to get the colors right!!
Can you help me by posting pictures of flowers that match those colors.
Thank you soooo much! My wedding is a month away!
These are my BM dresses.
those are my colours too! and funny that you should ask this question now, since I just finished putting together my floral inspiration board last night :) The right coral flowers are actually pretty hard to find, but here's one of my favourite coral bouquets :)
Pretty dresses - do you want the flowers to match or are you looking for a bit of contrast which would be pretty? Yellow flowers would pop if you wanted contrast, blue hydrangeas would soften the look, soft purple lisianthus would look pretty against it - I am afraid if you match the flowers to the dress they will get lost :)
Just a heads up - there are at least 16 colors of pink in California roses alone. If you get some wedding magazines, you can tear out pages and show your florist. You can also use the Martha Stewart website for inspiration. Then, try google - type in "wedding bouquet pink roses" and then hit the button for images and see what comes up. Florists aren't mind readers but if you give them visuals, they'll speak your same language. Sonia roses are a standard coral color in the florist world and bouvardia is coral as well - a bit pricier than a rose but very elegant. The most popular ivory rose is called bridal white - it's got a warm color to it and is very sturdy. Godetia comes in coral too.
We arranged our own flowers through fiftyflowers.com and we had 100 peach roses. They look similar to the color you are looking for.
Hope this helps.
@miss.skinner: love the hobnail glass! :) BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Oh wow! Thanks for all the suggestions ladies! I would def go for DIY centerpieces but I am afraid that the flowers will die on me lol.
Yours suggestions and pics are awesome.
BTW: I would like some contrast, dont like being to matchy matchy :)
Just found this inspiration board with coral bridesmaid dresses - very similar colour scheme to the flowers that @miss.skinner posted. I particularly like the bride's bouquet!
I found a few inspiration pics through google images... I don't know if I am to late to help you, but I thought that I would try. I think the textures and contrast in the bouquets are pretty, and fitting for your color story. Oh, and there was a pretty centerpiece I included too. Hope this helps out!
Take a look at Esperanza roses. They have an antique feel and large blooms with creamy pink hues at the top and hints of green at the base.
You lucky duck, those are the easiest colors to match! Do a mixture of pink and white (almost every flower come in both of those colors!)
What about something like these?
