My fiance and I are getting married on October 10, 2010 and I’m having a terrible time trying to match flowers with the bridesmaids dresses I picked out. I want a good variety of flowers in some sort of fall colors. I want something deep and rich in color, but also something that would compliment the watermelon colored dresses. We live in South Carolina and will be having the ceremony outside at a beautiful Charleston looking house, and we’re trying to keep the look a little less formal yet still sophisticated.
Thank you so much for your help!!
Jessica, I created your inspiration board with various flowers in oranges, greens, yellows, and a hint of peach pink. I think the bouquets would look great made up with yellow sunflowers, the deep orange gerbera daisies, green dahlia, and a hint of pink peach roses or peach aprioct dahlias (to bring in the watermelon color). The pink roses will lighten the bouquets up a little, where the dahlias will keep with the deeper tones. You could even incorporate brown flowers into the bouquets instead of one of the above colors for a more fall look. I hope this helps give you some ideas.
