I sympathize; my dress is going to have teal or turquoise accents and it’s just not a color that appears in nature! (Or at least not in flowers.) I suggest adding another “accent” color to your decor – maybe red?  If the girls are in teal dresses, you don’t want teal bouquets anyway because the flowers will just blend in with the dresses.

Are there teal astomerias maybe? or teal orchids? You can also dye carnations pretty easily. Or what about a dark blue – like irises. I also agree that you may want another accent color.

What about talking to the florist about colors that complement?  Maybe a very pale yellow rose?  Or maybe some blue hydrangea? Or maybe your bouquet is fresh flowers, while the bridesmaids have a button bouquet?

@kfricke89: In that case, I think brooch, button, or felt bouquets are your best options. Good luck!

my colors were “sea glass”- light aqua, seafoam, light sage.. so it is not really the same but this is what i did… i wanted lavender accents in the flowers for the girls..  but i asked for a lot of greenery/texture. My florist used a lot of leaves that were more of a dusty green or blue green to bring it all together (dusty miller i think is what that blue green leaf is). maybe if you did white roses with lots of greenery and some light pink accent?? mine had shells stuck in them and were wrapped with burlap… what if you did bright white bouquets (no greenery) with teal flower picks to give them teal accents. you can buy a pack of crystals and glue them on to bouquet wire for a cheap option and then have all the bouquets wrapped in teal fabric…

When I was in high school, I had a red, black and silver prom dress. My boyfriend went to florist in my hometown to order a corsage.

Well, the morning of prom, I went to the florist to get my corsage on the way to get my hair done. It had WHITE baby’s breath in it. Of course that was completely unacceptable and would cause the WHOLE PROM TO BE RUINED. I had wanted black flowers! Well, of course those don’t exist, but she said she’d figure something out (probably just to shut me up.)

When I came back, she had PAINTED the baby’s breath black! Not sure what she used, but it caused it to look glossy and sort of otherworldly. She tied the whole thing up with silver ribbon. Might be something to consider. And while you probably wouldn’t want to do this with full-sized flowers, I do know that white carnations can be dyed if you put certain food coloring colors into their water. You could maybe combine them with some black feathers or black crystals or something.
