“My name is Christi and my wedding is Oct. 10th, 2010. I am using fall colors…purple and burnt orange. I am not looking at spend a ton of money and thought silk flowers would last and plus one of my bridesmaids are allergic. I have 3 bridesmaids, 3 groomsmen, and want flowers for centerpieces. The vases are tall that they are going in. The other vases I am putting fish or floating candles in, they are short and square vases. I don’t want the flowers to look fake like some do at stores. Please help.
Christi, I created your inspiration board with flowers in purple, blue, and orange. I think the bouquets would look stunning made up with blue and purple roses, orange lilies or calla lilies, and violet blue wisteria accent. Wrap a dark ribbon around the bouquet stems to complete the look! This flower combination can also be used in centerpiece arrangements — or you could use hydrangeas in your bouquets and alternate the large hydrangeas and wisteria bushes in the vases for your centerpieces. I hope this helps give you some ideas!
