So I’ve been playing around with the idea of using Red as the major color for the foral arrangements but I could use a little help!
I actually love roses but I’d like a few different types of flowers for texture and a little variety. I’m very tentativly getting married in summer but that might change to early fall, depending on a few things…but it will most probably be a night wedding!
I’d love for some opnions or ideas!

Dahlia’s are available late summer and come in stunning shades of red. They’re really beautiful flowers:
There is also a really unique looking flower called Celosia (pronounced sill-oh-sha) that arrives in late summer. It comes in two variations:
All of those flowers would look lovely mixed together with so many different textures!

The only color I did in my wedding was all red flowers and everything else was whites, grey’s and or silvers, black and aqua blue. I wanted to have a fun, textured all red bouquet in March that wasn’t roses…as we didn’t want the typical red winter wedding. I loved how mine turned out.
I had red roses, spray roses, carnations, ranunculus, tulips, red berries, dusty miller, eaucalyptus, and other filler. I told him NO pink…but my florist made the executive decision to add a pink rose here and there…MADE ALL THE DIFFERENCE. It still looked like a red bouquet but added another dimension. LOVED IT!

Advice: pick the flowers and then make sure u can get them at the time when u pick to get married. U cant get all flowers everyday of the year.

@asscherlover: Thanks….it is nice to know someon else likes it as well. My flowers were a disaster and HUGE stress for our wedding. All I didn’t want was a rose bouquet. I started with a list of 20 in season red flowers and as we got closer to the wedding…the florist kept telling me they weren’t available. He did a great job of making it look, fun, modern, and textured with the majority of flowers being roses and carnations. 🙂 Oh and the smelled FANTASTIC!

Be careful with tulips as they wilt easily. That was my plan, but I was talked out of it. And don’t forget gerbera daisies for something totally different in shape/texture:
