Okay, I am having a it of a dilemma… I am attaching some pictures, so maybe some of you can help!
My gown (pictured) is ivory & champagne. My bridesmaids are wearing apple red (pictured, but not THIS dress… just needed to show you the color)… so, my wedding colors became red, champagne, and ivory.
My bouquet (in the picture, middle bouquet) is a ball of beautiful red freedom roses. My original intent was to have my bridesmaids carry all ivory bouquets, but now I want some color!!
So, here is my question – I want them to have bouquets of ALL ROSES… what color roses would go well with my wedding colors? Red is a hard color to match with!I’m not a fan of pink roses, unless maybe they are really light pink…
Oh – August wedding…

I would go with the yellow roses that have red edges. There’s kind of a blending effect so that the red (even if not an exact match to the dresses) with look good with the dresses and the yellow/orange will stand out.

i like rosychicklets suggestion.
Go with something in the warm family of orange, yellow. you’ll get a pop of color that wont look out of place.

Thanks! Yeah, I was thinking oranges and yellows.. just not ‘bright’ ones. What do you think about peach?

What about using the colors that are in the bridesmaids bouquets above, but all roses? Varying shades of red, orange, peach, yellow. The bouquets in that picture would actually look great with red dresses if you decide to go with something other than roses. They’re beautiful.

I would say either go with a red white mixed rose, and either do all those or mixed in with various champagne roses or go even darker red for the girls (also could have champange roses mixed in). My bouquet (our colors are red black and white) is going to have red roses, black magic roses, white roses, and white roses with red tips…. I couldn’t find the exact ones I have, but I doubt you want snow white roses with white tips anyways. I would go to your florist and ask for a book of what roses they can order, my florist had a huge book of varieties including like 60 varieties of red, champage, white and mixes of all three.

Sorry I found some more to Add:
Also I would think about maybe doing all champagne colored roses and then wrapping the stems in a matching red ribbon, and then maybe adding a few red jewels in the bouquet.
As you can see the white champagnes will pop against their dresses.
Some of the peach red roses
(I thought the pearls were cute!)
