Is this ok to do? My colors are plum and dark teal so my girls are going to have bouquets of blue orchids and purple heart calla lilies. I know the bride usually kinda matches the bridesmaids. However I have always pictured having a deep red rose bouquet for my wedding cause thats my fav flower. Nothing in my wedding is even close to that tho so Im worried it will totally clash. My other option if I dont go with that will be ivory roses with the purple heart callas which that will match fine. Just really keep going back to wanting the red.Is it ok for my bouquet to not match and anyone think that would totally clash? Any one else do something like this? Pictures would help a lot!
Bridesmaids Bouquets but Callas will have purple centers
Red bouquet for me
Or Ivory roses with Purple Callas

My colors are similar to yours. My florist suggested that we go with a lighter color scheme with our flowers. We are using a combination of pink and white roses, lavender, and green hydrangeas in our bouquets. It is a similar effect to the one you have listed on the bottom.

It seems like there is just a lot of color happening. What color are the BMs dresses? I think you can go with the red rose bouquet, but you would have to change the blue orchids in your BMs bouquets because I think they’d clash. You’ll want to go with something softer, like white or purple orchids. You could even add some purple calla lillies to your red rose bouquet just to tie in that purple color. I’d nix the blue orchids, but of course, that’s just me and my opinion.

I say, if you want to do red, go for it!! I used to work at a floral shop and the blue/purple orchids were often put with red roses and they just look GORGEOUS. If you want to tie in the colors, perhaps get the florist to wrap the stems in the same colored ribbon for everyone, or use the ribbon color of the bridesmaids bouquets as an accent on your bouquet.
That being said, make sure you get a look at the specific red rose color. There are a TON of variations on red roses, so get them to order a few colors for you so you can choose a darker red tone. The bright red doesn’t go as nicely with the blue. Black magic are quite dark usually and would look lovely with the blue of the orchids (just google black magic roses and select the image tab on google).

Hmm I posted but its not showing…
I say if you want red roses for your bouquet then DO IT!! I used to work in a flower shop and we often had the dark red roses with the blue orchids and they look lovely. Avoid going for the traditional red rose color and ask to see some Black Magic roses. They’re just gorgeous and there shouldn’t be any extra cost because they’re a typical color a shop can order. Just google “black magic roses” and you’ll see what I mean.
If you want to tie them in, maybe have them wrap the stems in the same color ribbon or take the ribbon color from the bridesmaids dresses and have that be an accent on your own bouquet. You have lots of options to pull it together but do what YOU want! It’s your day 🙂

jss77: Shifting your bridesmaids bouquets into plum and/or white/cream flowers will better blend with your vision for your bouquet and keep your color scheme.
I think you could easily do just callas for your girls, dahlias that burgandy/plum, or focus on dark purple blooms (maybe the black magic roses a PP suggested). Plum tones and your rich red roses will feel complimentary since they are in similar color families. If your bridesmaids bouquet are darker than yours, the roses will pop! Similarly, using white/cream flowers for your ladies will pop against your red roses. I like the bold blue tone in your pic but I think it fights your red roses for attention.
Best of luck!

Personally, I have my bridal bouquet matching my bridesmaid bouquets – they both have ivory in them – but I think you can totally do the red roses for your bridal bouquet. I don’t think the deep red will clash with your wedding colors, but you should probably change the color of the bridesmaid bouquets so they go better with yours. You want them too look good next to each other in pictures!

The reason w were going with the blue orchids is because our colors are dark purple and dark teal so the color of those flowers. Im probably having 4 girls so i was thinking of doing 2 in the purple and 2 in the teal (same dress tho)
My other issue is if i go with the red, nothing will match the guys bouts and moms corsages which are all ivory roses. so my plan B would be to just have teal colored dresses and have their bouquets be the ivory roses with purple callas. then i could do still the same or the red roses and wouldnt have to care about nothing matching the bouts/corsages.
