    Okay.. clarify to me what you LOVE the most of these. Then, I can try to help you keep what you love and we can change what you are willing to let go of! πŸ™‚

    Not exactly sure what you’re asking.

    What are your colors? What shade are your Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses?

    I don’t really think light pink, bright pink, white, and orange go together. The bouts don’t necessarily have to match the BM’s or bride, but if everything is white and light pink I think adding bright pink and/or orange would look weird.

    I would add the pink cymbidium to the bouquet you love so you can have everything! The bridesmaids, add a little more color to them. Maybe a flower the color of the walls of the chapel. For the men, I would add an orange rose (just like the orange in the third pic)to the white rose and voila!

    I like the first bouquet you posted with the green in it! That’s really lovely.

    If it were me I would, keep the bridal bouquet as is. Add some of the light green to the bouts with the right roses. Remove the feathers from the Bridesmaid or Best Man bouquets and add some green and bright pink or some white (but not both).

    The white roses will definitely not clash with anything! Don’t worry about it. But two shades of pink, white, green, and orange would be too much. There are so many lovely green flower options out there and they look gorgeous with pink! I’d run with that.

    Do you have any venue pictures? I really want to see the walls just to make sure the oranges aren’t going to totally clash! Also, what kind of wedding look are you going for? Vintage, modern? More pics more pics, I love helping with planning!!

    Here’s my initial thoughts though!! πŸ™‚

    Keep the white bouts.. simple, clean, and not too much extra stress on you! You can add color accents though to get the color you want.

    For an in between of the bright colors you love and the white, maybe mute it a little with white will help incorporate more of what you want? Here’s one with white and baby pink roses that are somewhat similar.

    Oh my gosh! I love it!!! Yes, totally stick to the photos above, I think they would look really good with your theme.

    For the bridesmaid bouquets, I would deconstruct them a little.. I saw you ordered them already! πŸ™‚ And I would add a few white flowers in there, and mayyybe try dying one or two orange. You can try some greenery just to see how it looks.. but I wouldn’t do the leafy kind. And, I would leave only yours with the darkest pinks/peaches, since their dresses are hot pink.

    It works well with white silk flowers, maybe pink would work too, but you can dip them in colored kool-aid. It sounds crazy.. but it totally works, and it shades them slowly, so you can control how dark you want them. Plus, it’s cheap! πŸ™‚

    I like this cake too, it gave me the glam vibe.

    Tea stained would be gorgeous! And they would smell good too!!! You got a really good deal on the bm bouquets!! The birds sound adorable! Who did you order them from?

    I ordered my clay cake flower from  http://www.etsy.com/shop/dkdesignshawaii

    She does custom orders, and can make pretty much anything you could ever imagine. Her blog has a million more, but I can’t find the link!
