Oh wow, love the shoes, love the dress, love the colors!! 

I know what you mean about the colors of flowers….  I would look for ideas on different bride website.  If it was me, I might go with white-ish flowers (not to colorful) since there is a lot of color already.  But like you said, there are so many flowers out there that if you do prefer more color for your flowers, there is certainly something out there.

I would use fuschia orchids – orchids remind me of tropical/beachy locations so it will fit w/ your beach wedding.

Also, not to over do your navy and fushia, I would add a few neutrals as well like creams/light golds.

What’s the name of the venue? Sounds like my daughter’s on LBI. I have tons of pictures, but the colors we used were turquoise, ivory and silver.

You can use anything you like. Your shoes are fabulous but unless you have a short dress they won’t show and they won’t interfere with the flowers. The BM’s dresses are one sold color.

You can get stock in that color. They are a nice, full flower so you wouldn’t need that many either!

For centerpieces, find pics that show the colors you like then have a florist tell you what flowers will be in season in those colors.

Insane! When I found out we had the same wedding date, I asked, hm I wonder what her colors are. We have similar colors, but mine are eggplant and royal blue. Cheers to planning!

We have the same colors, and here is my mock centerpiece. We did our trial early, so the peonies and hydrangeas weren’t as saturated with color as they will be this weekend. The peonies will be dark pink and the hydrangeas will be cobalt blue.

My florist actually texted me pictures from the Flower Exchange this morning when she was picking up all our flowers 🙂 🙂 🙂

PS: LOVE those shoes and wish I found them before my big day!
