We are actually going all white. Totally original, I know…

I have been debating this flower issue for months. I was originally going to do vibrant fall flower too. Yet I’m getting married in Vermont during peak Foliage and I don’t want the flowers to compete with the leaves. So I am going with simple green and ivory flowers. Lots of green hydrangeas, green hypericum berries, ivory roses, green roses, green spider mums and green button poms. Love it!

Oh and my girls are wearing chocolate brown and I’m in Ivory, so I think the green will compliment the foliage nicely.

My dress was also ivory and the BMs were in brown.  We went with reds and yellows (circus roses):

We have brown dresses and we are going with peach and apricot flowers.

Here’s my inspiration.

We’re going to be getting married near the end of August, or early to mid September (in Alberta, so the leaves won’t have changed that much yet), and our colour scheme is ivory-emerald-topaz-sapphire. First I was planning on having a bouquet with all the colours mixed in together, but now I’m thinking of having my fiance and I each carry a single blue rose (with a ribbon on the stem), rather than have a full bouquet and bout. Saves money, and this way we’ll already have the flowers we need for the rose ceremony.

I’ve got the same idea as Burke Bride: mostly greens. Green spider mums, button mums, hypericum berries, etc. We’re also doing zinnias (since they’re locally grown) in orange-peach.

Erindesmar, I’d check with the florist to see what flowers are local and what colors they come in (if you’re not tied to a certain look). They’ll be cheaper & might blend better with the scenery. Since you’re doing orange & brown, I’d also suggest hypericum berries, since they come in brown/reddish. If you’re looking for a color to go with orange, I think green or yellow flowers would go well.

I’m planning on going with wildflower type things in dark reds/dark oranges. I’m hoping to use things like black-eyed susan and sunflowers along with things like asters and zinnia. I’m planning on talking to step-grandmother about this soon to see what she recommends for October, as in what is the most available and affordable (she used to be a florist) I’m also planning on incorporating some wheat to give it texture. My main inspiration photo was from Mrs. Cherry Pie’s wedding…

This really depends on what your budget is and what is available in your area during that time.  We are opting for some bright red and orange blooms, preferably some that can be purchased at the local farmers market.  You have plenty of options (peonies, ranunculas, roses, calla lilies).  My BMs are carrying bouquets of white flowers.

If you want to keep things cheap, I would suggest spider mums. They look amazing up against wine colored dresses (which is what my BMs are doing).
