    Are you planning on using live flowers?  If so, I would definitely recommend going to a floral shop to see if there are any lime flowers that you really like.  I found this really romantic antique rose color that I adored (it was an artificial flower), but after getting my heart set on it and going to 6 floral shops, it become apparent that there was no live flower that was the color I was looking for.

    I think I would opt for a cobalt, yellow and white look. I think that will look very fresh, and it will be easy to find things for that combo.

    I love the cobalt and lime idea, but flowers could be an issue. If you can find some lime flowers (that actually grow that way in nature, since I hate dyed flowers), I’d go with that. If you can’t, I’d go with cobalt and yellow.

    How about cobalt with yellow and then adding lime accents?

    I think you can get gerbera daisies in lime green. How about a yellow and green gerbera bouquet?

    something similar to these…. but your colors…

    if you are set on cobalt & lime, there are flowers that come in lime. hydrangeas come in lime too, I thnk. not sure how expensive they are. here are some samples. you can mix in a bit of ivory or white with it as well for your bouquet. I found these by googling “lime green flower”. good luck!

    I love the look of the last bouquet in your origonal post with the mixture of yellow, orange, and green flowers.  There are lots of green flowers to choose from that grow green!  I’m going to try to insert some pics (never done it before…wish me luck):

    Spider mums:

    Jade roses:

    Green dendrobium orchids:

    and tiny little kermit mums:

    There are other flowers that grow green as well, just ask your florist to see some first hand.  They should be able to whip something up for you to see in any colors you want!  Best of luck.  🙂

    I like the cobalt and yellow but I really liked the lime and pictures some of the bees posted. I guess I am biased because I LOVE green lol

    To me orange and blue look like the Florida Gators football team. It would be fine though with just a little orange and more yellow though. But I like the blue, yellow and lime idea better.
