Cissie’s Lapis Purple and Marine Blue Wedding Inspiration Board

“Hi Ma’am.
I’m getting married 4SEP10 and still hazy on floral arrangements. Our colors are lapis and marine. I know that I want lilies in the arrangement as tigerlilies are my favorite flower. It is a outdoor wedding in the morning in front of a small waterfall. Thanks for any help.”

Cissie, I created your inspiration board mostly with flowers in purple and blue. Since we unfortunately don’t have any lilies available in those colors, I added a cream lily as well as a green one. Both colors will work well with purple and blue, and this way you can see the 2 options. For the bouquets, why not make them using purple roses and iris, blue anemone, and accent with the lilies. The cream lily will really stand out and look gorgeous against the darker colors. I hope this helps give you some ideas!

“Hello,

I need some help! Can you create a design board for me using these ideas?:

Flowers: Calla Lilies

Colors: Cream White, Navy Blue, maybe a touch of light yellow

I just need some help with design ideas! Thanks!
Maria”

Maria, I created your inspiration board with mostly calla lilies in cream, however I also including some roses, and sweetpea as well as blue and yellow colors. I think the bouquets would look beautiful made up of cream open calla lilies and calla buds, with blue and yellow roses. Or you could leave the blue out of the flowers all together and make the bouquets with the calla lilies and soft yellow roses or sweetpea and the wrap a navy blue ribbon around the bouquets stems. I hope this helps!

Yvonne’s Ivory, Chocolate Brown, and Eggplant Purple Inspiration Board

“I would like some suggestions with what to order for my wedding on May 22, 2010. My dress is sandy in color and my attendants are wearing chocolate halter dresses. I would love to have gerbera daisies in eggplant; also really like either cream coloured calla lillies or orchids but don’t know where to go from there. Not sure if you would be able to incorporate the chocolate in with that but if you can’t that is alright.”

Yvonne, I created your inspiration board with flowers in brown, ivory, and eggplant purple — being sure to include the eggplant gerbera daisy. I think the bouquets would look great made up with roses, gerbera daisies, calla lilies, and orchid accents. You can make them using flowers in ivory and eggplant, or even all 3 — ivory, eggplant, and browmn (which I think looks very beautiful). Perhaps make them using beige roses, brown calla lilies, eggplant gerbera daisies, and eggplant orchid accents. I hope this helps!

“Hi, please please help me put together some flowers, my colors are David’s Bridal sangria purple, ivory and gold.

My wedding is in a month april 3rd!! I’m still looking, please help!
Thanks
Jennifer”

Jennifer, I created your inspiration board with flowers in ivory and violet (the violet matches the sangria dresses nicely)! I think the bouquets would look great made up with vanilla cream roses, violet dahlia, and violet gerbera daisies. Wrap a gold ribbon around the bouquet stems and/or accent with gold pins to bring the gold color into you arrangements. I hope this helps give you some ideas!

Ashlee’s Bright Summer Wedding Flower Inspiration Board

Ashlee writes:
“Hello,
I want to start off by saying I love your flowers on the site. They are so beautiful!! I am have a summer beach wedding in south Florida. I will be in white and my bridesmaids will be in short black dresses. I want to use colorful gerbera daisies. Since it is going to be a beach wedding I want something bright and summery. I am having trouble deciding which flowers to go best with the daisies. What kind of flowers would you recomend??
Thanks so much for your help!!
Ashlee”

Ashlee, I created your inspiration board using gerbera daisies in all your bright and bold wedding colors. I also added a few different flower types that would look great with the daisies — roses, ranunculus, and dahlia. For the bouquets, why not create them with the pink spider dahlia, orange roses, and then use the gerbera daisies for the other colors (orange and green). Finish off the bouquet by wrapping the stems with a brightly colored ribbon — or alternating ribbon colors — and adding bright pin accents. I hope you like your board!
