I have decided to go with sangria, ivory, and black for my wedding ceremony colors! The problem is, I can hardly find sangria colored flowers anywhere! I think I will have to go with silk flowers in order to really compliment the colors and that is why I am contacting you for your help. I basically want to use the same color scheme for my ceremony and reception if it’s possible. Please help me! My wedding is the 22nd of August 2010.
Khyaiisha, I created your inspiration board with flowers in ivory as well as violet — which is a purple red tone that looks great with the sangria colored dresses! I think your bouquets would look great made up of vanilla roses, cream peonies, and violet dahlia accents. You could even add more color by using both violet dahlia and the violet rose buds as well. All of these flowers are beautiful large, round flowers that will make the centerpiece arraning easy as well. To finish off the bouquets and bring in your other wedding colors, you could wrap a black satin ribbon around the bouquet stems and accent that with gold pins. I hope this helps give you some ideas!
