I’ve long ago decided on the colors for our wedding — bright blue and lime green. So excited! 🙂 And the BM’s already have their dresses in the blue. My inspiration board is below…
I’m also having an outdoor ceremony and am really set on doing aisle petals (probably creating an aisle rather than just down the sides). But I’ve been talking with the florist and she was saying I should go with a brighter/warmer color for aisle petals so that it will pop against the green grass and give more color to the space. I agree, but worry that it may look funny to add a random color (other than my blue and green) to the aisle. My florist says it would look ok (she’s been doing this for years, so she should know!) What do you think? And what color should I go with for aisle petals? Thanks bees!!!

I would do white–it seems like you’re using white a lot already, and it would definitely pop against the green grass.

I know!!! White is the obvious solution!!! But I mentioned that to the florist and she said it would pop but wouldn’t give the color the space needed. So she said I shouldn’t do just white, maybe white and another color, but not just white. Ahhh!!!! Thanks though! 🙂

I wouldn’t use a color that is not present anywhere elsein the wedding. I like the white idea.

my 2 cents -the florist does this for a living – trust her.
If everywhere you look you just see your 2 colors – it could look corporate.
And in the end, if your guests judge you because you are matchy/match or you’re not matchy/match – who cares. Have fun.

how about like a creamcicle orange?? like a very pastely orange? i think it would look nice with the blue and green.

I think a deep pink or a very light pink would look gorgeous.

I was going to say white but then I see that was already discussed. If not white, can you do a lighter shade of blue to stay within the colors you have?

I think a green white. If that makes sence.

I would just use white and blue – the white gives the contrasting “pop” and the blue will still bring a little color and tie into your theme!
I really dont think I would use a random color, but maybe play around with different shades of blue with white.
While the florist is a professional, she is offering her opinion…if it doesn’t match your opinion or doesn’t suit your taste, don’t feel like you have to listen to the “pro” opinion.

First color that came to mind was YELLOW! I dont know why! Just so bright and vivid! But I think White would be great and still stands out against the green grass! 🙂

I still think white would look the best with your colors. Are you having a flower girl? You could have your flower girl drop some of the other colors down so it gives you a little pop of color. If you must do a color, I would vote for yellow, but I stand by my original idea of white.
IMHO I think maybe you need to rethink your idea since you’ve posted this a few times and keep getting the same, or at least similar answers and none of them seem to be what you want to hear. Could you put some yellow or something into the bouquets so that they match the rose petals? I think you need it more than one place in order for it to work.

I will go with yellow. It will pop.

I think yellow would be nice. It still goes really well with your colours, and it will pop against the grass without standing out too much. Even if you had a yellow and white mix of petals I think it would look great.
ps. I totally love your colour scheme!
