I feel like I should warn you that I’m not even remotely a girls girl and have no knowledge of flowers. Fair warning that this post may make you smack your head against the desk if you know your blossoms.
So here’s the deal: I’m getting hitched at an amazing recently renovated 1920s era opera house/theatre. It’s beautiful. There are chandeliers and the seats are a greenish color and there’s red and blue in the space. The ceremony will be in the balcony and the reception on the stage.
I’m looking for something unique for our centerpieces and bouqets. We have a very small bridal party. The only real requirements for the centerpieces is they have to be low (FI hates tall because he says he feels like he’s “walking through a forest” lol!). The tablecloths are going to be gold with a very sheer peach overlay. You can’t even really see the peach unless you look from the side, but it adds a bit. The napkins will probably be off white, so it’s kind of a blank slate.
I’m open for ideas on bridesmaid dress colors too. Basically I’m hoping you can choose our colors for me because I’m incapable. I was thinking maybe plum purple or sage green for the dresses?
For centerpieces/bouquets I love mixing succulents and flowers.
Here are some samples of stuff I like, even though none of it actually goes with anything else:
I LOVE this one-
completely different without succulents:
As you can tell, my brain is scattered. Help me make sense of this!!

@viewfrmhere: Your wedding sounds like its going to be amazing! My reception is at a 1930s Art Deco-style theatre. I have just started thinking about centrepeices, but I think I am going to go simple – round glass bowl with white carnations and roses, maybe some tealights. Our venue itself is quite elaborate, so simple is the way to go.
You mention that your tablecloths will be gold – I think gold looks great with plum and sage green.
I think plum bridesmaid dresses would look amazing with succulent or calla lillly bouquets. It would be a beautiful contrast.

@LilacViolet: Thanks! Your venue sounds wonderful! I was considering going simple with our centerpieces too, but the stage is just all black so I don’t think they will take away from the room. I hope not, anyway.

@viewfrmhere: Yeah, if you have an all black stage it is a much easier backdrop to work with. I think all your colour ideas work together, and I love the idea of succulents and feathers mixed with roses. It is unusual and beautiful.

I think you have an amazing venue and if you chose soft colours for your centerpieces with the stunning gold tablecloths you will let the venue shine
Here is an exemple with hydrangeas, roses, anemones
