Recently someone posted a picture from their wedding in one of these posts. Her BMs wore blue dresses (tea length? possibly) with champagne shoes. I remember her bouquets were mostly white with some splashes of pink.
If this sounds like your wedding (hopefully whoever posted that is reading this), what sort of centerpieces did you have? Did you stick with white/pink flowers? Or did you add some blue touches?
If you’re reading this and you didn’t post that picture or have blue Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses, what colors would you do in the centerpieces (I am definately having flowers).
(I’m only asking because I want my BMs to wear blue and have white/pink flowers, but everyone tells me I need to have blue in the bouquet and centerpieces.)

My BM’s are wearing blue as well and I am having yellow and white flowers. Probably no blue at all (naturally blue flowers are super hard to find, especially because hydrangeas would not go with our theme.) However, we are using blue vases for some of the centerpieces, so I think that ties in the color scheme. IMO, although I do have ‘colors’, I am not tying myself down to them just so everything will ‘go’. I think you could use whatever you want as long as it complements each other. It doesn’t have to all match.

Thanks peaches. My colors are very loose also. I want things to flow, but not necessarily be all the same 2 or 3 colors. I guess I just needed reassurance that it is ok to leave blue flowers out of the mix!

What color blue are you having? My colors are navy, gold/ivory/champagne and pink. Not sure if the girls are going to wear long navy dresses or short light pink ones. Either way, they are going to carry mostly white flowers with touches of light pink. Pink is more an accent color. FOr my centerpieces, I am going to have more pops of pink in them. But not using blue at all. But I am planning on having navy table linens. Sort of something like this but bigger and fuller. I really like the look of the lillies, although I don’t like the smell!

I don’t think you need to have blue flowers, either. If you want to carry the blue over onto the table you can do a runner thing like Jerseygirl23 did. That’s what I’m doing for our light blue, gold and white wedding. The centerpieces are a mix of gold and white, and they’ll be sitting on the blue runner, and the girls’ dresses are blue with a little bit of gold.
At our venue, the runners are only $2.50 to rent, so they’re surprisingly cheap compared to full colored tablecloths.

Thanks for sharing the pictures. I really am a visual person…
I like the blue table runner idea. Maybe I will do that…. Otherwise it will be light colored flowers on an ivory table….
@Mrs. Cooper: It’s a medium/dark blue.

I’ve post before, but I love my pics of my sister’s wedding 🙂
We wore Horizon blue from DB and the bouquets…well here we go with pics 🙂
Those are purple flowers in there, not blue if the color doesn’t look right **

My bridesmaids wore navy and we had bright pink flowers. It was very beautiful. The pink flowers really poped against the navy dressess and against the cream table linens.

Mrs. Buttons: I will now be studying all the pictures from your wedding and taking copious notes! No pressure or anything….

I had blue Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses and did orange and yellow flowers with lots of greenery. I am not a fan of blue flowers! I had to remind my florist multiple times…no blue!

I had blue sashes around the chairs…

my bridesmaid bouquets are baby’s breath with some varigated ivy. half of my centerpieces are branches spray painted silver and covered in glitter that will have crystals hanging from them. the other half are white spider mum heads floating in a lily bowl. both will have various tea candles surrounding them.
