Melody’s Red, Green, and Brown Wedding Inspiration Board

Melody writes:
“My wedding will be in the fall next year and I don’t know what to do! I like the idea of doing chocolate brown but can’t decide if I should use peach, sage green, or red. The girls will be in dark brown cocktail dresses, and the boys in brown sweater vests/sweaters with striped shirts and dark brown pants. My fiance will wear an actual suit in light brown. I want to use herbs if I go peach or green, or wheat and poppies if I do red. I just don’t know what to do with the colors and the time of year. any ideas? Thanks.”

Melody, I created your inspiration board with both color palettes you are interested in. Unfortunately, we don’t have all the exact products in the colors you are looking for, so I substituted — this will at least help you to see the colors together. Personally, I love the red and brown color palette! Using red poppies and brown gerbera daisies or hydrangeas (or both) accenting with wheat and wrapping a brown chiffon ribbon around the bouquet stems. It will give the bouquets a fall feel and still be so romantic! I hope this helps give you some ideas.

  1. Here is some information on the meaning of the red rose.

    Red – Means

    Love, above all else, is the symbolic meaning of flowers ranging from crimson to scarlet and back. The deeper the red, the deeper the meaning. Dark reds show a charitable love while brighter reds reveal devoted passion. Whether this is love born of beauty, fire, or courage, red is the color to have.

    There are two names that have been given to red roses. The first is Red Berlin, this nickname illustrates the type of passion one has. Red Berlin is a tomato red rose, this shouldn’t be all that surprising considering all that comes to mind when you think of Red Berlin. The second name given to red roses is Black Magic This nickname has been given to a dark burgundy rose.
