My original thought was to have my flowers aqua blue, chocolate brown and off-white, however I have been having difficulties finding blue and brown flowers in the color that I want. I am making the bouquets myself and have found quite a few brown daisy like flowers (silk) and I off white hydrangeas. I am wondering if it would be alright to have my BM’s flowers with pink/green/yellow hydrangeas and have multiple colors instead of just the blue?

I think the multi-color could work. I really like hydrangeas. I’d suggest doing a mock up and seeing how you like it with the bridesmaids dresses before buying the flowers for the big day.

Hyacinth is pretty and blue. There are some nice hydrangeas too. Go to a floral shop and see if they have any nice ones. I would go with multi color instead of blues. Add some purple. I saw some nice purple and blue bouquet that is really nice.

I like the idea of multiple colors. Especially if you are DIYing, the multicolor will allow you to be more flexible- in case a color is out of stock or something your whole floral design won’t be jeopardized.
I also agree that you need to to a few trial. I would suggest seeing how your flowers hold up out of water (if you aren’t using silks). A friend used hydrangeas for the GMs bouts and by the time the reception started they had wilted and looked totally dead.

I’m not sure if this is was your thinking but i highly reccommend design master floral sprays.
I used these for some flowers at my wedding (I found white calla lilies for a really low price, but fell in love with the hot pink which cost DOUBLE) I bought some of this spray and sprayed all my white flowers (roses, callas, spider mums, etc..) and they looked natural and amazing (IMHO)
Here is the link if you’d like to order a can and try it out.. it is a really nifty tool if you DIY
