Will a blush dress work with a wild flower wedding?
We decided that the blush garden rose-eucalyptus-gold theme was over done and just a little too formal for our outdoor lakeside wedding in April.
Fiance really like the wildflower look. But he doesn’t know my dress isn’t white and I’m really worried about it being a rainbow fest with my dress. Should I try to pick a color scheme and stick to wildflowers within those colors?
Also, I have purchased some silk , large and in charge blush garden roses that I was going to make our floral piece above the arch with. But now, I’m not sure I can incorporate the roses with the wildflower look. Any tips?
I really like the dusty blue, golds and blush colors, but I’m not sure how if that will work with wildflowers.

Could you show some photos of what wildflowers you have in mind? I googled it and it looks like they’re a ton of different colors and variations to wildflowers.

It sounds like you’re thinking of wildflowers as bright. There’s tons of wildflower boquets you could do that aren’t rainbow-y. What about the blush roses, eucalyptus, lavender and baby’s breath?

I had a blush dress with ivory lace on top. Honestly, it photographed looking white in many of the pictures, but it was definitely blush. My bouquet was shades of white and blush flowers with lots of greenery. My bridesmaids wore gold and the groomsmen wore black and gold. I know this might be the rose-and-greenery look that you’re not going for, but I have wildflowers like Queen Anne’s Lace in there too 🙂 When I say wild flowers, I mean that my sister and I picked them on the side of the road the day before my wedding, hahaha.

Also, I would look into the following wildflowers and see if you like bouquets with any of them:
– Astilbe (I had some of that in my centerpieces)
– Lily of the Valley
– Daisies or chamomile
– White poppies
– Seeded Eucalypus, Ferns, Lamb’s ears, Buplerum, Bells of Ireland
– Hydrangas (in white, blue or green–they’re great because they’re nice and full and inexpensive)
Look for “white wildflower bouquets” or “white and blue wildflower bouquets” on Pinterest for inspiration. My concern with my poufy blush dress and light blue was that I didn’t want to look like cotton candy, hahaha. Dusty blue or blueish purple would be gorgeous though.

I realy wanted a wildflower look for my bouquet. I had an ivory dress with a blush layer of lace. Flowers included Finesse roses, cafe au lait dahlias, feverfew, thistle and some other stuff I can’t remember. Hahaa. I really wanted to do Juliet roses but they were incredibly expensive so I decided not to.

And a couple more pictures because I was a little obsessed with it. I forgot to grab it when we went to take pictures so it’s not in the ones of me and my husband which I am so very sad about!
