This doesn’t work on all flowers (so I’ve heard) I’ve done it with carnations when I was little but it doesn’t dye the whole flower. On rich groom poor groom one florist used a special floral spray paint, I think I’ve seen some bees used it here too. I would research and test what flowers take the dye best,  on some it doesn’t dye the whole petal but sometimes that’s a nice accent. I’m thinking of doing white flowers for the tables and just a teal/turquoise ribbon on the vase to save some headache.

Um, my family owned a florist for years and I can tell you that it won’t work. You can order floral spray paint, which is pretty easy to do. However, it can sometimes be messy and run as well. Also, from what I know, it accelerates wilting. With already having an August wedding, you’ll probably notice wilting anyway. 

I’d honestly maybe just pick white/another color to go with your accent colors.
