I am going for Pewter colored Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses. I love accenting it with red (January Wedding). I want to carry a red bouquet and want the Bridesmaid or Best Man to also carry red, but my Mom thinks that mine should be different than the BMs. Any thoughts?

I always love yellow and gray together but that might not work if you want a red bouquet.

@amyste: This is my colour combo, so I totally think it is fab! I am planning on adding some oranges/yellows/other bright colours into my bouquet to make it a little different (but I am wearing red shoes and I am going to ensure my bouquet has red as the most prominent colour). I think you can totally get away with either all red, or mix it up a bit with some of your other favourite colours!

This is the inspiration board that I really like

Oh whoops I didn’t realize it was for a winter wedding. I really like that red/gray combo for a winter wedding. The gray/yellow is more spring/summery I think.

For my wedding, Bridesmaid or Best Man are wearing slate and will be carrying white flowers. I’ll be carrying white hydrangea and stephanotis with little diamonds in them middle. My bridesmaids will be carrying just white hydrangea. Is there something you want to put in your red bouquet to make it stand out?

I always thought gray and pink looked good together, or you can just do your bouquet larger than your BM’s. I think it will look great either way.

I am having a red wedding. I am doing brown, ivory, cranberry red, and gold accents. So to your issue, my florist has different shades of roses. Instead of having all red they could have roses that are white, to match the snow with red tips around the top. It would be a beatuifil accent to yours, and not match yours. Or they could just carry white roses. It would match your inspiration board.
with peuter and winter I think blue’s, flowers are harder to come by though. Tiffany Blue with gray and Pink, hot pink or pastel.

Welcome to the Hive
I think its totally up to you! Red flowers w/ pewter, grays, slates look amazing. My girls are wearing slate and we have different color flowers b/c mine (eggplant) would bee too dark and they wouldn’t pop if my bm’s had them.

What about doing opposites and having the girls with a white boquet and you with red?
Here is a link to a site I loved http://ashevilleeventco.com/eventblog/real-weddings-brianne-ryans-christmas-wedding-12-27-09/
What about just breaking up your red boquet like this

What about mixing white with your girls’ bouquetds, since you want yours all red.

I think the idea of mixing in white flowers (or having them have bouquets of a light red?) or maybe even white flowers.

I like the idea of mixing some white in with the red. I think that would be beautiful.

Is the dress from davids bridal? Cause my Bridesmaid or Best Man are wearing pewter from DB that looks grey but in the sun it has a purple tint. We were also thinking red bouquets but once we saw the purple hue we went with dark purple carnations… Best of luck!

Wow, I love your inspiration board… makes me want to have a winter wedding! I think you could just include some white flowers (or ivory, if your dress is ivory) in your bouquet. Or your BM’s bouquets if you prefer all red for yourself. We made our own bouquets with orange and red gerbera daisies, and mine was exactly the same except I added a few white daisies. I thought it worked really well.
