Jennifer’s Purple, Red, and Yellow Inspiration Board

“Hi LeAnne!

I was hoping you would have some suggestions or advice for my Oct 2nd wedding. My bridesmaids are wearing Lapis dresses from David’s bridal in various dress fabrics and silhouettes, but all of the dresses are knee length. I was thinking of using red roses and purple filler flowers or accent flowers for my bouquet, and red roses and yellow gerberas or mini sunflowers with purple filler for the bridesmaid bouquets. Is this too much? I also love the warm orange colors of fall, so I’m tempted to incorporate that color as well, but I was told by others that the orange would “muddy” the red-yellow combo. I’m thinking of having red apples with yellow sunflowers or gerberas as the centerpieces, but I’m open to suggestions for that as well.

Thank you for your help!
Jennifer”

Jennifer, I love all of the flower and centerpieces ideas you have come up with so far!!! I created your inspiration board with red roses, yellow sunflower and gerbera, as well as purple accent flowers. I also included an orange rose — personally, if you went with a more golden yellow, I don’t think the orange would “muddy” the red and yellow, but take a look at all the colors together and see what you think! I think the bouquets would look amazing with red and orange roses, yellow sunflowers, and purple accents (snapdragon), in the various designs you mentioned above. For the centerpieces, I think the red apples with yellow sunflowers would be beautiful! Maybe add in some natural willow or raffia for more of a fall look. I hope this helps give you some ideas!
