Our colors will be mainly in the flowers since BMs will be in either gray/silver OR black dresses. These are the bouquets or something like it:
For the guest tables, I am doing a simple silver candelabra. Table cloths are ivory and table runner over that will be black with a mirror and candelabra over it. The candelabras hold 5 candles. There will also be 4 smaller votives around the base. I wanted to scatter something in color on the table and was thinking petals. What color would you do the petals in?

Thank you for any ideas!

I’d go for kind of a brighter dark purple, if that makes sense.
I think the orange will look to halloweeny with the ivory and black. I don’t think the green will really give you the fall vibe I’m getting from the flowers.
You want a purple that isn’t going to blend into the black if you have dimmer lights.
You can get free color samples from PetalGarden.com. I ordered petals from them and was VERY impressed. Having the samples helped me a ton in making a decision. I went with a slightly brighter color than my colors actually are because it will help them show up a little better from a distance.

i’d say burgundy petals, like the your flowers.
Orange petals would look too halloween-ish
or maybe green petals… but i’d prefer burgundy/magenta/whatever the color og the red-ish flower is

I’m thinking like the Concord color on this page. BUT – the colors really do look different in person. Order the free samples. They arrive very quickly.

Thank you everyone! I just ordered several samples of purple/sangria shades. 🙂
