Cymbidium orchids would be nice because it’s very contemporary. You can also consider calla lillies which are quite green in the stem, and have a little white which is also really contemporary.

Don’t be scared to explore green carnations. I really had to do a double take when I went to a 5 star hotel recently and saw centerpieces at each table consisting of green carnations in a square vase. When closely bunched, it gives a really contemporary look.  I could e-mail you a picture of that if you would like. 🙂

Hi Brookem,

 Since your color scheme is brown and green, you could also do some type of white flowers- hydranga maybe (I also think they can look green if they aren’t in full bloom) since the stem and leaves will be green.

i did green and white arrangements for my FSIL’s wedding. i used bells of ireland, white hydrangea, white roses and green hypericum. they gave a clean look to the reception, even though the flowers are somewhat more traditional. pm me if you want pics! i have to scan them in still.

i would stay faaaaar away from green carnations. they don’t occur in nature and ensuring that they’re dyed properly would be really hard for you to do. i’m just afraid they’ll end up looking like a first grade science fair project.

My wedding was all white roses, hydrangeas, mums, tulips and parrot tulips, green hypericum. I just saw a wedding on a blog with all bells of Irelands and it was gorgeous, all green goddess callas look fabulous too. You can also try the "antique" hydrangeas that have a hintof pink and green and cream in them. My BMS dresses were brown and the green parrot tulips popped so good in all the pics. I can definetly recommend you try color in your bouquet if your dress is white and thiers are of any color. Good Luck!

Try Bells of Ireland, green mums or green hydrangea.  You can even find green orchids.  As for brown there are some great ones out there.  There are brown cosmos, chocolate dahlias and zinnias.  Oh, and there are green roses if you want something a little more traditional.
