I think I shot myself in the foot by settling on a b’maid dress I’m not in love with. The color is beautiful on it’s own, looks great and was super affordable but I’m having a really hard time trying to come up with florals. It’s a rustic, fall wedding some I’m trying to “downplay” the brightness of the dress.
We went to a florist last Saturday and I realized I’m COMPLETELY CLUELESS. I’d love to see some real bridesmaids in Guava (preferably chiffon) with their bouquets if anyone has that! Below is a pic of the dress on my Maid/Matron of Honor – what do you think? The color scheme was originally orange and brown (guys wearing brown tuxes) but I couldn’t find an orange I liked and just settled on this one which is starting to look more coral/pink than orange. HAAAAALP!!!!

I went with coral reef from David’s Bridal, but I used guava as an accent color and I thought the flowers I used were gorgeous! I used garden roses, ranuculus, and astromerias. There were tons of flowers in the colors I wanted. For some reason the new WB won’t let me upload a picture. I’m sorry!

Tomato22: I’m hating this new format 🙁

This will incorperate some of the colour you have but will tone it down a bit
A dress a similar shade to yours:
or maybe they could have white and you could have orange flowers, a bit like this:
or some alternatives?

Sparkidoodle: Super pretty, and it’s not too bright. Thanks! I think I just need to find something I like and take it to the florist instead of just “seeing what they have” b/c that’s limited. I guess they can do anything.

Ahh! I LOVE guava! Haha, well, clearly I am partial, since I chose it for my own wedding! My florist was amazing and did our flowers under budget! I actually loved the fact that the color is so bright, but I do feel like our flowers went well with the color. Hope this helps! (My wedding was September 2013 and we wanted a fun/rustic vibe also!)

I think blue flowers would look great with those dresses. Blue and orange look great together imo
