hi there! im not really a flower person, i dont like them at all really lol…not a typical girl. i dont know what to do with my boquets. im getting married oct 4 and am having camoflauge vests for the men. havent really come to a color for bm dresses either. so i dont know what colors to do. and i only have one request, hopefully it will work.
my grandma died a couple of years ago:( she loved spider mums, and that is what she had on her casket, so to honor her, and have her a "part" of my wedding, i want at least one spider mum in my boquet along with my two sisters. will this look funny at all or can i make it work? any ideas on colors at all? Im so clueless!
here is my dress:

The camouflage vests are a little unusual and I think you need to have your colors somehow work with them. Maybe one color from the camo brown or green and one warmer color maroon, gold, orange. I think after reading those the gold and brown might look good together and fit with a fall wedding. Plus then you could use leaves or something as a secondary motif to the camo and it would make sense.
I’ve seen some pretty Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses in brown/ tan. You need to take a swatch of camo to either a dress store or a Home depot and look at swatches of fabric or paint to see what would look reasonable together. (I like Home Depot cuz you can take the swatches home for free and no one will bother you)
I have no idea what spider mums look like – so I can’t be much help there. Pick our colors and then worry about the bouquets.
Your dress is really pretty.

maybe something like this but more fall hues rather then the purple flowers? this is quite as full as i’ve seen in bouquets, but i’m sure that could be easily fixed if you wanted something fuller…..
this might help too…..i actually like the clean look of the only mum bouquet…..
Modern, Minimalist… Spider Mums!
there are lots of color options for spider mums, which gives you lots of options- good luck!

Green Spider Mums might be fantastic!!! Have the bouquet include some hypericum berries and tie it with a brown ribbon!

i’ve read the advice to concentrate on your colors and not so much the flower. simply decide on your main pallette go to the florist and she/he can pull flowers that fit that color scheme.
it would not look crazy at all to go with one spider mum…how about a bouquet featuring just that?
i think going with caramel or tan would be your best bet with bridemaid dresses. David Bridals Mocha and Latte seem like good options. though i am not sure whether you are going with the brighter colored cammo or the more muted colors.
your dress is beautiful! i actually have that one marked as one of my favorites. i definitely will be trying that one on when i go dress shopping.

i think spider mums are SOO Pretty! I am going to have them as centerpieces at my reception – if you can’t do the bouquet thing with them you can definitely have your grandmother "join" you at the reception. Or you can integrate them into your wedding invitations or some other way. If you are dead set on having them in the bouquet I am sure good florist can help you pick a bouquet that will make them stand out. Just a thought… good luck!
