My wedding is in early spring and I desperately want to have dark purple bridesmaid dresses. Initally I wanted to use flowers that had deep, rich jewel tones but I think I have been convinced by the world that I should do lighter colors to avoid looking like autumn flowers. I was thinking peaches/pinks/dark red or purple. Has anyone used these or has ideas/pictures that would help so much!

@hokie bee: Don’t let the world convince you to sway from your gut on the flowers. They should be exactly what you want them to be. The only way they are going to look like autumn flowers is if you have a lot of orange/reds/yellows in them. My girls are wearing eggplant dresses… and these are the flowers I’ve been drawn to. I’ll def be doing something similiar because I love the way the pinks will look against their dresses!

Go with what you love!
I think all of the bouquets above are soooo beautiful and would look gorgeous with eggplant dresses. Don’t worry about the season!
And I LOVE this one:

Thanks for all the pictures! The more pictures I look at, the more times I change my mind on what colors I like.

I don’t have pics but my friend got married in early april and had eggplant color Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses. They carried long stem white calla lillies and she had a bouquet with white roses/calla lillies and a few dark dark purple roses. It looked great!! My rule of thumb is do what you want! I always said I would have pink flowers no matter what month I was getting married in. Something to think about… when you or anybody looks at your pics down the road- nobody will care that your colors matched/or didn’t match the “season.”
