Sooo…we weren’t thinking of things like flowers when we decided on our colours. We are doing grey, navy and coral and would like the flowers to be coral. Most florists are saying we can’t really get coral in anything except roses which we aren’t big fans of. Any suggestions? Has anyone else done this before? I’m not opposed to non traditional ideas as well as we don’t want to go too crazy on floral costs if we can avoid it.

@futuremrsdingwell: I was thinking of coral flowers… You can get dyed hydrangeas in coral.
I looked a lot at fiftyflowers.com just for ideas because you can sort flowers by color.

There is also some floral paint that you can have your floriest spray on the flowers [or on the tips?]

For my wedding we ordered coral silk flowers online. I sent a swatch of the bridesmaid dress colour and they died the flowers to match. I can’t find a pic of the BM bouquet’s but here’s some of the flowers from the head table.

Peonies and Dahlias come in coral.

I was just going to say peonies and dahlias. I’ve also seen snap dragons, hibiscus, ranunculus, poppies, amaryllis, gerbera, tulips, gladiolus and carnations in coral.

Coral peonies are to die for. I adore them. I second the dahlia suggestion – they’re also very pretty and go well with peonies.

In my maid of honor bouquet last year they had coral roses. Coral and apple green (orchids) were the pops of color, in all the bridal party bouquets.

@Lyndzo: What was the website you ordered from?
Thanks so much ladies, I might try going to some different florists, the one we went to see wasn’t the nicest!

@futuremrsdingwell: Dahlias come plain and fancy and in all kinds of fabulous sizes and colors. You might give them a try.

Thank you ladies so much! We met with another florist today and she had more than a few suggestions, just goes to show it’s good to shop around! We aren’t sure what we’ll go with yet, she will do up a sample and send it to us to check out. Mini freak out for almost no reason haha.
