Mine will be red (daisies, Peruvian lillies & lillies w/ Christmas greens) and intertwined white and red ribbon & my sister’s will be white (daisies & Peruvian lillies w/ Christmas greens) with a red ribbon – she is wearing a red dress. 

 

I think orange flowers with a blue accent would be gorgeous!

YAY!  Orange and blue were my high school colors!  🙂  I just googled orange and blue bouquet and I think orange flowers with blue accents looks great!!  My bouquet had no white in it.  It was red and pink roses with purple statice.

My flowers were a mix of reds, pinks and purples.

My girls bouquets coordinated with mine but were smaller and had different flowers.

You can do whatever your little heart desires!  I chose to do whites, with pops of pink.

I am doing silk flowers which is why I have pics already. Mine were originally white:

But then I realised I wanted my flowers to be my touch if colour so I DIYed and added some beaded decorations and some pink flowers, and voila:

The pic doesn’t do it justice, trust me 🙂 but I am much happier with that touch of colour… 

TBH the last 4 weddings I have been to NONE of the brides had white flowers they were all larger versions of the BMs colourful bouquet, except for one who had a large red rose bouquet and her BMs had smaller white rose bouquets…

This really is a difficult decision. White is so traditional, elegant, and “bridal” and does not detract from the bride or her gown. On the other hand, a bouquet with color will provide wonderful contrast and will “pop” against your white gown. I struggled with this choice, also.  Eventually, I decided on a bouquet of all-white peonies, and I loved it.  My floral designer knew that I had an interest in pink peonies as well, and, bless her heart, on the day of the wedding, she brought me a second bouquet in pink at no additional cost! I had the opportunity to choose — and I chose the white one.  However, I did take one dramatic picture with the color bouquet, and that turned out very nicely.  So, you may just decide to have both and use them for different events (ceremony vs. reception) or in different photos.

Why not do a mix? Mine were a bit of both – mostly white with greenery & the occasional pop of antique rose thrown in there.
