Do These Flowers Go with This Bridesmaid Dress?

They’re beautiful! If you really want to play up the red, what about using some very dark red varieties of rose so they’ll still contrast with your bridesmaids’ pretty red dresses? Try googling “black magic rose” to see what I mean. They’re SO dark and richly colored! Either way, the bouquet you’ve posted goes nicely with the dresses, so you can’t lose!

I love the dress and I love the flowers, but I feel like the bouquet might be too light for that dress?  That’s just my opinion though; I’m sure no one would even notice that the flowers contrasting with the dress, though.  And if that’s what you’d like, then go for it!! 🙂  Maybe talk to your florist, too, just to see what he/she says

What about yellow roses for the girls? (Like Belle’s dress.) Red blue and yellow are really the colors I think of for beauty & the beast.

Here are some red-on-red. I think they look lovely.

amberback:  +1 I prefer this red on red with dark green leaves and white roses included. I don’t think it would be too much red. The OP bouquet sample just seems to “light and airy” to go with deep red dresses.

For me personally, I don’t like the “blush” colors in there. I feel like some of those could look too orange against the red. That would bother me. I’d stick to white and creams only.

But I’m sure they would be lovely. Everyone’s taste is so different. There are plenty of bouquets in the world that I’m not a fan of that other people think are gorgeous.

I’m not a fan of the orange with the red.  Something like these could be pretty.

If you’re going to use that dress, I really like the red and white rose bouquet that a pp posted best of all. But honestly, I really dislike that dress. Just my opinion, though. To each their own.

bouquet of white roses would be very pretty and then red roses for you.

I agree with others, the peach roses seem to orange for me against those dresses. I would maybe stick with the red and white rose bouquets and maybe add in some yellow roses too.

egrossheim:  I’m not a fan of salmon/peach with the red at all. The colors don’t go together.

I think red on red can look gorgeous and if you don’t want that, then what about white or yellow? Yellow and Blue are the major colors for Beauty and the Beast anyway. 

Also, not to be mean, but wasn’t the rose pink?

I think the posy in your picture doesn’t compliment the dress at all.  How about white or ivory flowers?  Some of the examples other bees have posted are lovley.  Personally I think red and yellow says ” MacDonalds” more than “Disney”.

observer:  Maybe it’s because I don’t really go to McDonald’s or watch their commercials, but these don’t scream McDonalds to me.

I hate the dress and even more with that bouquet. Sorry OP. I do like the suggestion of a deep red dress with red/white bouquets though!
