For any of you that have had weddings or planning a wedding with this color scheme
… what did you do when it came to flowers? I dont know if i will be able to find turquoise flowers? Did you do mostly red flowers?

There are no such thing as turquios, teal or any variation of the color in flowers… much to my dismay concidering MY colors are teal and black. I am gaving to add in purple just so I can have pretty and cohesive bouquet. So, Yes! Do red! It will be gorgeous and fits perfectly in with your color sceme. And you can always add turquois ribbons to the stem. Its what I plan on doing!

This is a cheat, but I’ve seen it work with Queen’s Anne Lace as well as carnations.
Mix up with food dye the color you want (you can either mix it up using the food dye from your local store or you might be able to find turquiose online) and add it to water. Take white carnations (or, if the time of year is right, Queen Anne’s Lace) and put them into the water and let them soak up the colored water. The carnations/Queen Anne’s Lace will change color.
Your other options are tissue paper flowers, fabric flowers or ribbon roses/flowers using turquoise paper/fabric/ribbon.
Otherwise, your only other choice is red and variations of red.

Definitely flowers can be sprayed. I’m sure if you Google you will fnd how it’s done. i have seen flowers sprayed all kinds of colors before.

Some variations of Forget me nots are a more teal color. They’re pretty small though.
Dying flowers isn’t too difficult though – PP described it the way I’ve done it before.

These are my colors as well. I went the ribbon/antique button route. It’s not finished yet because I’m still adding stems and such but you can still get the idea with their temporary “bucket” placement!

Yes, flowers can be dyed turquoise. i had planned on going that direction since they were our wedding colors. Then I picked up a few pompoms that had been died to play with centerpiece ideas. The dye got on everything so I nixed turquoise flowers right away. We did shades of blue and turquoise for our colors so we ended up going with an accent color orange. But in your case, I think the red would be beautiful (I wish we had done red flowers).
