We are having our wedding beakfast in this room.. I am not sure about what colour flowers to use. As you can see in the picture with white linen and white flowers they get washed out by the bold colours of the room.. Does any one have any ideas?
I had initially thought to maybe use colours like this…
What do you think?

I like the colors in the centerpiece you posted, but I think there are too many different colors. Since the walls in your room are pretty bold already, perhaps something monochromatic in a pink/orange tone? Orange would look very modern/bold. something lighter would be more romantic.

The gold frames caught my eye as well and I was going to suggest an orange/yellow tone for the flowers too.
But I also dont think the washed out-ness is due to the white, but rather the green so if you could do a more solid flower, less filler arrangement I think that could look great. Just really depends on the feel you’re going for.

I agree less filler, and gold/yellow with a little white mixed in would be great. I also think the other flowers would be too much, the room is very nice and you don’t want to detract from that.

@mdinh815: Oh wow I love those gold flowers!

Thank you so much for the ideas! I was wondering what colour urn you think I should use? The example I have posted is silver, but given there is so much gold in the room, and that the crockery and cutlery will be gold, should I use maybe a darker colour with some gold candle sticks to tie it in.
What do you think? My worry is that the silver wont work with all the gold in the room..

I would do one colour with different shades maybe purples or pinks?

That’s a gorgeous room!!!!
Is the carpet blue and the walls mint?
If so, I was thinking just variegated hydrangas would look pretty—the blue and cream coloured ones with white, no greenery. Or, a colour palette with the cool pinks in her and a pop of that crimson, as that will look nice against green, gold 🙂

If you want a more monochromatic look, stick close to blue on the colour wheel and do purples and pinks. If you want more of a dramatic look (which I’d chose personally) go to the opposite side of the colour wheel with oranges and yellows!

The walls are duck egg blue (I would say). The pillars are green (very similar to the colour of ivy) and then the carpets are blue. (Alot going on I know, you should see the rest of the venue!!)
I love the your idea of pinks, its not visible in this picture but the celling of the room has deep pink edging on it.

I have to say, I’m not a huge fan of the bright pinks/oranges in the centerpiece originally posted, but I think that’s just me. When it doubt, ask the perfect palette?

I would suggest coral colored flowers

@mdinh815: I love the orange. I think it gives it a splash of color with elegance. The multicolor flowers may look tacky since the room is green.
