    Ohhhh, I likey the second picture.  But that is just me and my personal taste.  I think all red or variations of red with black and champane will look really nice.

    love the second pic too.  i think it would be great to get one or two other colours in your bouquet besides red.  a florist can give you lots of advice on what will work best with champagne

    The 2nd and 4th would be great color schemes for a fall wedding.

    couple of suggestions – try to see what the flowers look like as you are holding them when you are with your wedding party. All flowers look great close up but the ones that really hold their own are the ones that can be photographed from farther away.

    I would completely skip using anything black -weather feathers or ribbon as it’s going to look odd against your dress. Maybe use champagne ribbon around the bouquet.

    Certain flowers cost more than others – for example, the colored mini callas in the 2nd photo can really set you back as well as the button dahlias if they aren’t in season. In the last photo, I love the Saint John’s Wort (i think hypericum?) as it gives some texture to the bouquet.

    Most brides don’t think about texture or how things photograph so I thought I’d add my 2 cents. Have a great time planning your wedding, I’m sure it’s going to be beautiful! πŸ™‚

    I’m getting married the week after you and my colors are ivory and gold, these are the flowers I’m using.  I wanted the pop of color to come thru my flowers, and I so love the fall colors but didn’t want a fall theme.

    I like all the varied ones and the all red one that cherrycoke posted.  Mmm flower porn.

    All deep reds might go better with the black and champagne color theme if it’s more of a formal black and champagne.  I so love that look.  If it’s more of a celebrating-fall black and champagne, varied might work better.  Depends on the look you’re going for.

    I think if you’re going with black and champagne as your weddings colors the “only red shades” would work best with the theme.  I think it would be a nice pop of color.

    Your wedding date says october and the second bouquet just looks perfect for that season.  They are both gorgeous you cant go wrong with either one.

    @mrstobeeisme: that is so pretty- it would be perfect for either an Autumn or Christmas themed wedding.  I’m in love with the colors.
