morokuri :  Lol, don’t worry I really didn’t have a clear vision at all! I didn’t even have a colour scheme when we went to buy BM dresses, we just walked in and found a dress that everyone liked and I was like ‘ok then I guess lilac is one of my colours now’. Same thing with the stationary, I just looked online and found something pretty. Then my husband wanted grey suits so that was fine and we got bowties that matched the BMs, and then we had to pick a chair sash colour at the venue so we just chose gold figuring it would go with everything. In the end everything looked great together but there was no process lol. I actually booked the florist super late and met with her 3 weeks before the wedding, and I was completely useless in the consultation meeting. I just showed pictures of all the stuff I had and asked for something with as much colour as possible while still fitting in with everything else. She was just insanely good at coming up with the perfect thing. So the moral of that story is that if you’re finding flowers tricky you don’t have to start with them. It could be easier at the end. BM dresses are also a very good and common starting point for a colour scheme. You might find certain colours look good on everyone, or that there’s not much available in other colours.

I love the vibrancy of the first set of flowers you have there. I knew I wanted red roses so red roses it was. My sister had pink roses to go with her dress.
