Ok, So My Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses are black, and I have white and gray accents.
I REALLY REALLY need to pick what color for my flowers. For the last few months I have gone with the idea that I will do all red, mostly roses. Which I love; I do love simplicity. My florist also suggested doing all white. But at the same time I really love seeing floral arrangements that are all multi colored. My wedding is in just about a Month. I haven’t really purchased anything that “locks” me into the red. But I also can’t find any great multi colored floral bouquets and centerpieces for inspiration.
So I meet with the Florist to finalize plans June 2nd. Please help, Go with the red. Do all white or find some inspiration for Multi colored??
Pics would be great!

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!

What about a compromise where you have all red flowers but in varying shades of red? There could be lighter, more orange red, true blood red, and darker, wine-colored tones. It would be monochromatic but add a little more dimension.

@lionskitty: Haha, i try not to think about those things! White does sound nice and clean.
@anemonie: I really like this idea, and I really love the first pick you posted. Maybe that would work for me
Thanks so much for your replys girls!

Anemonie’s pictures are fantastic for multi-colored red… 🙂
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. 🙂
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 😉

@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 🙂

Ok, I love everything!! lol.
The wedding can go either avenue. The girls dresses are black with gray trim and they have black shoes, I got them jewlery off etsy that is pearls with a black accent flower. The guys will be in black and there ties are black/white/gray checkerd which has a little bit more of a “fun” feel than really fancy. They do have pocket sqaures the top is gray and one underneath that is a pop of color but the suits are in the middle of getting tailored so I can make the back pocket square whatever I want at this point.
We are getting married in a nice church. The reception is at a modern hotel, the ballroom isnt typical- it has lower celings then opens up to a huge sky light over the dance floor.
I want Modern but not to to Stuffy and Fancy. Kind or a modern- elegance.
*I really dont like pink unless its used with other colors.
Im so confused!! lol

@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

@reebee: Oh I like the white here! Im worried that if I do white flowers for the centerpeices I might have to then purchase overlays as they wont pop on the white linens… what did you do? Do you have a pic if you dont mind?

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):
Hotter colors; Red/Pink & Red/Orange mix:
Do you like any of those?
