I’m getting overwhelmed. It’s my fault because I was like, “la-di-da I don’t need to pick a palette! it will all come together!”. . . but now that I’m trying to book a florist I don’t know what to do. So I seek the wisdom of the hive. My taste is vintage/romantic. It’s an urban, end of winter wedding in a church and then a full Chinese banquet. We’re not allowed to have white as a main color (except for my wedding dress) because it’s against tradition. I generally dislike green bouquets.
My flower girl dress is dusty rose and silver and my bridesmaids are wearing a pattern with gold and green in it (not the one below, but the same shade of green).
But both my venues are full of gold and crimson colors. Should I ignore that and go with a sweet dusty rose/mauve floral palette? or I thought of doing a deeper burgundy/plum palette to match the red everywhere, but I don’t want my little flower girl to clash.
these two bouquets I lifted from theknot.com. Pretty please help me!

I think your actually doing ok. I like it. I personally would be leaning towards paler colors for bouquet if its vintage but then again dark red can be vintage..
Confusing! maybe your florist has some suggestions?

If it helps, I don’t think your flower girl bouquet has to be the same as the BM bouquets. I would stay in the mauve family. I think the crimson and the green might look a little Christmas-y. I also think the dusty rose is more vintage feeling. Love the FG dresses!!!!!!!

thanks everyone on their input so far and the compliements on the flower girl dress. For those who are interested, it’s made by monsoon.co.uk but I bought it on eBay.co.uk. I sent my flower girl three pictures and she picked that one out herself. I’m still waiting on its arrival from across the Atlantic.
but back to bouquets– I found this one on floraverde.com/blog and I think it might incorporate the burgundy and the mauve.
Do you think it’s too garden-y for my wedding? It’s a church wedding with a cocktail hour and sit down dinner in March. I’d do the bridesmaids like this; small, with more greenery and my own bridal bouquet more saturated and bold.
