Kalau’s Orange, Red, and Yellow Inspiration Board

“Aloha,
I was hoping that you could help me with the colors of my centerpieces and also those of the bouquets (bride and bridesmaids). I am getting married in Hawaii April 16, 2011. I was trying to come up with a color scheme that would not clash with the dresses of the bridesmaids. I was thinking something with red, orange, yellow, a little purple and maybe even a hint of lime green or a hint of purple and a little lime green. I am open to suggestions.
Mahalo-
Kalau”

Kalau, I create your board using the three main colors of the wedding that you wanted, I also added in the lime green and purple accents. I think that if you created your bouquet simply using the gerbera, and spider gerbera daisies it would look gorgeous. Since you have several colors it might be best to stick with the same flowers so the bouquets and center pieces are not too “busy”. Why not make the bouquet with red and orange traditional gerberas, and use the spider gerbera in yellow. You could also add in one or two of the lime green spider gerberas, and a couple of the purple traditional gerbera’s as the accent. You could also use curly ting in red and/or purple to add a bit of dimension to your bouquet. I hope this helps you to make a decision!

Chris’ Horizon Blue, Yellow, and Pink Wedding Inspiration Board

Chris writes:
“LeAnne,

I am getting married in the end of May in Anchorage, Alaska and am needing some ideas on flowers. My bridesmaids are wearing different tea length dresses from David’s Bridal in the horizon color. We are planning on doing an outdoor ceremony followed by a reception with lots of windows. I was hoping on using bright and cheery flowers to make for a colorful spring explosion. I was thinking maybe some yellow, purple, or pink flowers.

Can you help me please!
Thanks.
Chris”

Chris, I love the combination of the horizon blue along with bright yellow and pink — it’s so bright and beautiful. I created your inspiration board with a few different flower types in these colors. For the bouquets, why not create them using yellow roses, blue hydrangea, and the rubrum pink lilies. The bright pink lilies will really make the bouquets “pop.” If you’d like, you can even add a touch more blue to the bouquets by wrapping a blue ribbon around the stems. I hope this helps give you some ideas!

Pelma’s Navy Blue and Ivory Wedding Inspiration Board

Pelma writes:
“Hi there,
I am wondering what flower colors to use for my bouquet. My wedding colors are ivory and navy. I have an ivory dress and my fiance will be wearing a navy suit. Our wedding is going to be small but elegant.
I am having a terrible time trying to choose flowers. So far I like the ivory roses and blue hydrangeas.
Please help.
Pelma”

Pelma, I created your inspiration board with flowers in blues and ivory/creams. I included the ivory roses and blue hydrangea, but also added anemone, peonies, baby’s breath, and a blue rose. I think the bouquets would look great made up with the ivory and blue roses, cream/ivory peonies, and blue hydrangea accents. Wrap a navy ribbon around the bouquets stems and accent that with ivory pins to finish the look. I hope this helps!

“Good day,
I am having a wedding in August 28th 2010 and I wanted to know what suggestions are there for color combinations of black, ivory and gold. I don’t know if this would be a good combination but I like the colors.Thanks
Kaia”

Kaia, I created you board using a mix of flowers and accessories in black, gold, and ivory. Why not create your bouquet using the ivory hydrangeas, and roses. You could add the other colors in whith black and gold curly ting. There are also a few flowers that have a gold sparkle why not try one of those? I think it would look beautiful if you finished the bouquet with a black ribbon and gold pins. I hope you like your board!

Nalja’s Ivory, Dark Brown, and Celadon Inspiration Board

Nalja writes:
“Hi, I am planning to get married December 11, 2010 and I want to make floral arragements for the centerpieces to set atop of 11 inch apothecary jars. I would need enough flowers for 12 center pieces similar to the pictures show for “Debra’s Pink, Green, and White Wedding.” I also love the idea of kissing balls and rose petal garlands. Thanks so much, I can’t wait to see what you come up with.”

Nalja, I created your inspiration board with all the flowertypes from Debra’s Wedding Arrangements. I included the hydrangeas as well as the pink roses. If you would like to recreate this arrangement, we would suggest using 5-6 open roses (brown and vanilla/ivory), 3-4 rose buds, and at least 1 bloom of each the cream white and light green hydrangaes. You could also replace the cream roses and use cream or white peonies instead and still achieve the round arrangement lookor add in the celadon orchids. Accent your reception hall with the centerpieces, and perhaps cream rose garlands and kissing balls. Check out items AF-SLK-FR2336-CR and AF-SLK-FGR120-CR/GR. I hope this helps!
