Ashley’s Purple, White, and Black Wedding Inspiration Board

“Hello Leanne,
I am having so much trouble with flowers for my wedding. My original thought was for the bridesmaids to carry bright purple hydrangeas but I have been told that it might be too dark on the black dresses. Is there anyway I can incorporate a little white. My main three colors are black (bridesmaid dresses), white, and purple (accents).
Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!
Ashley”

Ashley, I created your inspiration board with flowers in purple and white. I don’t think the purple looks too dark against black, especially if you went with a bolder, brighter shade. I used orchids, roses, hydrangea, and lisianthus on your board in both colors. Any combination of these flowers will look great for your bouquets. I would suggest perhaps making the bouquet all one color (purple for example) and then using a hydrangea cluster in the opposite color for contrast and to make them stand out. Wrap a black ribbon around the bouquet stems to complete the look. I hope this helps!

Becky’s Black, White, and Green Wedding Inspiration Board

“Hi,

I’m getting married May 8, 2010 and my colors are black, white and green. I stumbled upon your site looking for green silk calla lillies and was glad to find this board. I was hoping you could create a board just for me using the above colors with a splash of orange, so I can see what the colors mght look like together with the orange. I have been wanting to add a splash of orange somehow without taking away from the black, white and green. I don’t have a photo of my shoes just yet but I’m going more fun rather than formal seeing as they are low heeled green pumps with a little black bow on the top of the shoe.

I appreciate having a look at your ideas for my board.
Becky”

Becky, I created your inspiration board with flowers in cream and shades of green. I also included and orange rose so you can take a long at the orange flower along with the other colors. I think the orange adds a nice “pop” of color, and if you used it in moderation, could be a very nice accent. I think the bouquets would look great mad up of cream anemones, green and cream dahlias, and green roses (bring in the orange for extra color). Wrap a black ribbon around the stems to finish the look. I hope you like your board!

“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!
