I love fiddlehead ferns, I think they are so cool looking.   I saw a great arrangement one with antique hydrangeas, moss, and fiddleheads and looooved it.  Our colors and style just ddnt support them πŸ™

fiddlehead ferns? are those the ones the curl at the end? man, those things give me the heebie jeebies!

If you’re on a budget, I suggest looking into what local flowers will be in bloom during your wedding season. You might be surprised ~ AND if you know local flowers from the get go, your potential florists can’t rip you off as much. πŸ™‚

I love the idea of the peaches, and since you are incorporating fresh fruit, I do think it would be better for you to stick with earthy shades of brown and green like you suggested.

Personally I think bright colors would clash with the peaches, and neutral would blend nicely.

hahahahahah @ daydream!  they used to FREAK me out too!  Until I stared at them long enough to finally accept them hahahaa.  I do think you should stick with neutrals for flowers if youre going with peach centerpieces (love them by the way!)  The peach will look great as an accent, but if you start mixing those too much next to brown and champagne it COULD look a little Halloween-y.  These were our original colors actually, and we mrried 9/12.  Ended up going navy and cream with yellow accents instead, but I found over and over that the neutrals worked so much better than colors.

I agree that staying with neutral tones would make it look so elegant! I love vendela roses, which are warm and I think would go nicely with the peaches. I like the idea of staying with soft textures, very fresh. maybe some creamy tulips? Anyway. Just my thoughts. I love soft, light, neutral colors, so I’m biased. πŸ™‚ 

I’m thinking of looking into fiddlehead ferns myself. It could be nice. I also like the idea of adding some green into the mix to freshen it up and brighten?

πŸ™‚ This is fun, thanks for letting us in on the inspiration fun of flowers. mmm….

nah, definitely go for it at the ceremony!  We did opposite; primarily cream at the ceremony (few splashes of blue hydrangea) with color at the reception.  you can definitely pull off color with altar arrangements or with pew/chair decorations.  You could do with hanging mason jars with small sprigs of flowers, or with pomanders of orange or peach spray roses or peachy carnations (i know you dont like them but they look really cool when bunched together).  Maybe manzanita branches at the altar with some strung orange blooms?
