    For me the red flowers with black dresses has been ruined by the bachelorette. I like the white because I’m lil miss monochrome but I think the multi-coloured would be great too!

    Anemonie’s pictures are fantastic for multi-colored red… πŸ™‚


    Also you may want to check out pinterest… another thing I did was check out florist websites. City Flowers PDX has some great arrangements to use as inspiration. πŸ™‚ 

    Here’s one I just found online, googling “bright floral centerpieces.” It’s going in my inspiration folder too!

    I think black, grey and white goes very well with different shades of Pink!

    I like the multi reds idea. Or, PINK!

    however, i think if you do pink it should be BRIGHT pink

    all red seems too stuffy and formal, but we don’t have any other info on your wedding look/theme/feel/venue etc

    if you have a more modern feel, i would go with white flowers. maybe you could wrap the stems in red ribbon? and/or, if the girls don’t already have shoes, red shoes for them and you? with red pocket squares for the guys? – actually, I think i like this avenue a lot. this is my final answer πŸ˜‰

    @anemonie:  Agree, I think that would be the perfect compromise between elegant and fun. It allows a monochromatic floral arrangement without seeming “boring.” In the end, however, it’s all about what you want OP πŸ™‚

     @Jenbee:  My BMs wore black dresses with grey trim too!  We had mostly white, with accents of green and grey.  My bouquet had succulents, theirs were all white.  The centerpieces had some grey brunia, and green orchids

    Monochromatic screams “Modern” to me.  I’m in love with flowers that are the same color, but different vibrancies.  @julies1949‘s suggestion of the different red hues would be gorgeous, and is what I was thinking when I originally read your post.  Here are some more pictures to give you some more ideas (forewarning, these are all google images and some are HUGE):

    Mix of different flowers in deep reds:

    All roses (imagine it without the dragonflies):

    Softer reds:

    Hotter colors; Red/Pink & Red/Orange mix:

    Do you like any of those?
