What about red and yellow tulips? You can also pair them with solid red and solid yellow tulips. I’m not positive of when they’re in season, but I know tulips are generally a spring flower.

You can also try ranunculus, which might be in season in May. As you can see there are a lot of options color-wise and even a few two tone ones.

Finally, I would look at peonies which come in lots of colors and several shades of red and yello.

@dragonlover:  We had tons of peonies  at the wedding and they didn’t fall apart at all. In fact I dried my flowers on my own and they still stayed together. They can be a bit pricier depending on the time of year you are planning on having them.

@dragonlover:  I know for a fact they come in red (my mom used to grow them in our back yard). They are expensive. I’m not sure how well they hold up in a bouquet, but I know they are really popular flowers so they must do ok. I love the way ranunculus look. I’m not sure about when they are in season so I would ask your florist about them. If they didn’t mention them then it might be because they are out of season when you’re getting married, because they don’t grow well in your region or a number of other reasons. It could also be that your florist didn’t think of them (there are a lot of flowers out there).

Have you spoken to other florists? It might be worthwhile to see what they would pair with them. I got quotes from a few florists and I learned about more flowers I could use that way. (I just wanted an all red bouquet with different flowers so I asked them to make suggestions and then give me a quote.)

You could also do an all rose bouquet with just the two colored roses.

How about plain old beautiful babies breath? simple, goes with everything and cheap. Or daisys, also simple?
