So I had the perfect color scheme picked out. Y’all even voted on it!
And it was going to be great. Linens come in those colors, votives, ribbon, bridesmaids dresses…
But you know what doesn’t come in those colors?
Flowers. Aside from calla lillies (which, no offense to anyone here, I kind of hate…), I couldn’t find any flowers in that particular shade of purple. And blue? Brown? Latte? Forget about it!
Now I don’t know what to do…. Guess I will need to start from scratch, unless someone can recommend a good fix for this conundrum! A wedding without flowers just won’t do.

Well, you could compromise on the flower colors just a bit- you do want them to look natural right? What about some deep purple flowers with maybe ivory/light pink spray roses and some gold flowers, tied up with a bow? I really do think you can make it work- you should talk to a florist and email your colors to them.

Dont Hydrangeas come in a Brownish color?! Or Cyrsthymums? I love your colors! I hope you keep them!

talk to a florist. My colors are teal and black… there are NO natural teal flowers. I was able to talk to a floristthat came up with the most amazing combination of flowers that I had never even thought about or knew existed! Seriously, the right florist can do wonders for an unnatural color pallet.

In all honestly, unless you plan on having towering floral arrangements, I think tablecloths make much more of a visual impact than flowers. I don’t think you’re backed into a corner. You can do a lot with tablecloths, napkins, candles, menu cards, place cards…a lot can go into the table design besides flowers to contribute to the color scheme.

Orchids come in browns/ambers/yellows
Cosmos come in chocolate brown
Tons of flowers come in great shades of ivory and cream
Iris’ come in dark purples
As do carnations
Maybe something like this with more gold and replacing the red with deep purples. I think it could still work, especially given your date.

I’ve seen flowers in all the colors mentioned above, just do a google search for flowers in that color, you’d be suprised

I had the same kind of colour scheme and pulled in the colours other ways. (brown around the girls boquet etc.) But it would be easy enough to add some “grass” tones to pull in the latte etc.)
