I think lots of colors go nicely with yellow. What about blue flowers? Or, if you’re worried about color overload, white flowers might be a nice match. I think daisies are always a nice option- they come in a good variety of colors!

I love the Daisy idea.  You could always put the daisy in nice blue vases.  Nice glass ones.  I think that would be beautiful.  But there are a lot of colors that look great with yellow.  You could use reds and oranges-like big sunflowers.  I love the look of the red sunflowers.  I dunno.  Could you go to a paint store and get a swatch of color, then go to a flower shop?  Maybe that would help..

On the bright side (yay morning puns), yellow is a cheerful color. Will you be having the space fully lit or will you be having more ambiance lighting? I think you could use pretty much any color for flowers and it would perk up the space, because they’re, well, flowers. Will you be having colored tablecloths? That could change the feel of the space more than flowers, I think.

You could go for purple flowers like irises and lilacs, which are a cool color and on the opposite end of the color spectrum from yellow. That would have a balancing effect. Purple isn’t hard to find in flowers. 🙂

Honestly, from the pictures I think the yellow will fade into the background as long as you do a color.  A black and white wedding might not work in that space, but I think any color other than that would work fine.  If you want to have a large variety of flowers to choose from, reds, oranges, and pinks would all work well.  Think colors of the sunrise- and the yellow will blend right in.  Or if you wanted to do something like greens and purples, they would probably pop well against the yellow.

So yeah, I would just go with what you love and not worry too much about basing your decisions around the color of the walls.

@mmuncha- I do that too.  When I’m stressed out about something else, I find some little wedding detail to fixate on, lol. (lately it’s been my dress…)  Good luck with everything, and I’m sure whatever you choose will be beautiful.
