Hi bees, I’m a bit stuck as to what colours to use for my bouquet.
Actually, I don’t have a wedding colour, I’m going for “garden colours” as I can’t decide which colour to stick with! So originally I was thinking of a bouquet that has all the colours the flower comes in.
I’ve had my heart set on Alstroemeria, and here’s my test run: (I’m making my own)
Then I suddenly realised that it doesn’t match my gown!
My gown looks like this:
It’s not exactly a “simple” dress.
Here are the colours available to me:
Can you please please help me as to which colours I should have in my bouquet?
Thank you all so much!!

@cabnolen: ok, I’ll play: why doesn’t it “match” your gown?

Oooooooooh. I would say B3, C3, and C4.
Quite honestly though, I think the the one you made looks just gorgeous…the petals on the flowers are light enough to match very well the flowy layers on your dress.

@cabnolen: Also, and this is funny/ironic, you’ve chosen the one flower I cna’t stand from florists. But that said, Alstroemera is a sturdy little flower that comes in lots of colors, always readily available form florists. So it’s not a BAD choice, ti’s just not one I’d make.
I like your idea of all colors of the rainbow, that’s nice.

@cabnolen: Go with all the darker toned flowers 🙂

I understand what you mean about not matching your gown. How about mixing it with different flowers?

@FauxPas2012: each to our own ay! Haha~
Personally I really want to avoid roses as it’s too over-used.
Well I thought it didn’t match my gown as my gown is not a simple one, and to match a more complicated looking gown calls for a more simple bouquet. So I thought maybe too many colours would just be over-kill? That’s my thought anyway~
@autumnmountainbride: Can you please explain which ones are ABCD and which ones are 1234? 😀
