“Hi, my name is Jamie and I am getting married on May 22, 2010. I am having a hard time trying to chose flowers for my table centerpieces. I really don’t have a theme for my wedding, but I do know that I want it to be elegant. My colors are plum & silver with touches of lilac and a light ivory. I am having dark purple table runners, so I am kinda skeptical about also using darker flowers. . .not sure if that will be too much purple. Your help would be greatly appreciated.
Jamie, I created your inspiration board with flowers in purple, lilac, and ivory. I think as long as you make your centerpieces with both light and dark flower colors, the deep purple won’t be too overwhelming. I think for the bouquets and centerpieces, a combination of vanilla cream roses, eggplant anemone, and lilac hydrangea would be beautiful. If you are still afraid it’s too dark, you could go with vanilla roses, lilac snapdragons, and purple hydrangea as an accent. Wrap the bouquet stems with a silver ribbon to complete the look. I hope this helps give you some ideas!
