Do you have a color scheme picked out? Or a theme? I think any color would look nice in that room, though a combination of pinks, light and medium colored, would be beautiful.

As for flower types…Peonies? Dahlias? It really depends on the look you’re going for. For a soft romantic look, I’d stick with “softer” looking flowers. Roses, carnations, peonies, garden roses, stock, etc.

The room looks neutral enough to cope with any colour scheme except for purple which might clash with the carpet.

dojx:  I think the key things that will brighten the room are candles and mirrors. Are you allowed to have real candles?

This room is more neutral colored as opposed to the last room you showed which had the blue drapes and chairs, so you can really use any color at all that you love.

What colors do you  and your FI love? We can all suggest random colors and flowers but it might not reflect the two of you at all.

There are websites that can help with color choices.

http://www.theperfectpalette.com  click on a color that you love and you will see the palettes they have developed using that color



click on palette search, you can then browse palettes they have developed, or play around with their “search by color value” tool till you get a color you like

You said you are having a spring wedding. If you choose flowers that are in season where you live, they will be less expensive.

What kind of feel do you want for the reception? Calm and elegant? Light and carefree? Romantic  Vintage?

dojx:  You can still have candles then, you just have to have them in containers. You can certainly use teapots, vases, lanterns etc for your centerpieces. I think of it as “Grandma’s attic” or “family treasures”  which is definitely vintage and romantic.

You could use a framed mirror rather than the typical centerpiece mirror as a base for your centerpieces to increase the light and sparkle.

You can find old mirrors at the thrift shop and spray paint them all the same color.
