My colors are mint green and chocolate brown. I am having trouble finding flowers that I like for the bridemaids bouquets. The dresses are green so I want to combine greena and brown flowers but I don’t kwow what would look good together. Im a DIY type of girl. I found brown roses online and at Michaels. Any ideas what light green flower would look good with them? I thought about also using cream as a filler too.

some white flowers look greenish, like baby’s breath and lilly of the valley.

If you’re looking to DIY with real flowers, check out Fifty Flowers. They have an option where you can sort by color. Cymbidium orchids come in pretty pale green shades, too.
Also, you can create just about any color flower by using the floral sprays from Design Master. I’ve seen them sold at Michaels in the spray paint section. (It’s what my florist will be using to create just the right shade on the hydrangeas in my bouquet.) Be sure to use a VERY light hand!

Another options is to use herbs (smells nice too). And there’s "organic" plants such as cactui, etc.
Or you can do a "unique" option that I was thinking of doing, b/c I’m going to use a similar green/ dark brown color option too. I was thinking of using orange flowers, adds a little "spark" of color to the flowers, making them "pop"

Green roses are gorgeous… absolutely gorgeous.

My colors are olive and chocolate brown. I am using Cymbidium Orchids, green Hydrangea’s, Viburnum, and if I can find some greenish Ranunculus I might throw some of thoes in them…. I also like the idea of using hops in my arrangements. Dyed green sweet peas, Erica Green Ice, and Amaryllis Magic are also great choices as well. Hope this helps!
