- Wedding: April 2012
So I’m freaking a bit about my flowers. I want them all to have a cohesive look, but right now it’s like impossible.
The chapel has white roses, so I’ve been using roses.
My bouquet right now, but mine is pink cymbidium and pink roses on top (this is just the closest pic I could find):
The bouttanaires are white mini roses. I haven’t done anything else to them! (no pic…but picture a white rose with a stem, and you’ll see how far I’ve gotten hahaha). They’re a blank slate!!
My bridesmaid bouquets right now
Now as much as my bouquet is okay, I can’t get this idea out of my head:
I love the multicolor. I love the pink, orange, and green. It feels so fun and fresh. But there’s still no white? But my other fear with the multicolor is that it will compete with me and my eye will go right to it. When I tried on dresses, I hated when the dress was “wearing me” so my dress is really simple and diamond white.
So do I keep going with the pink and white look? Should I add white to my bouquet and the bmaid bouquets to match the ceremony site? Will the white flowers clash with my diamond white dress? I’m also sort of on pink overload right now.
Or do I go multicolor and change the other flowers to match? What if I feel overwhelmed?
Or is there some other inbetween I’m missing?
The ceremony site has tuscan colored walls with wrought iron sconces and white roses. The bmaids are wearing pink dresses and the groomsmen are wearing gray and white.
Our colors are unofficially pink and orange, but to be honest my fiance feels the need to keep adding more colors (blueberry? aqua? mint? purple?). I’m not kidding. He wants more colors. Originally, the only color I wanted was gray haha.
I’m a graphic designer, so I’m huge on color combos, but for some reason I can’t see it for my flowers at all. It’s making me bats. And we paid extra for the photos since that was what was most important to me, but that affects the flowers since “it has to look good in the photos”. My fiance has even said I have free reign on this because he knows that I will zero in on the one thing in the photos that doesn’t match or I feel doesn’t look right.
