‘Hi! My wedding is November 6, 2010 and my colors are Lapis and Pewter from David’s Bridal. The theme of the wedding that I am going for is an Old Hollywood glamour look. I am considering doing crystal trees on some of the tables but would like floral arrangements on the other tables. I am stuck as to what colors to do for my bouquet, my bridesmaids’ bouquets, and floral decorations for the reception. Any help you could provide would be great.

Shanna, I created your inspiration board with flowers in purple and grey. I always suggest flowers such as peonies, roses, magnolias, orchids, and anemone for the old hollywood glam themes — these flower just have that look to them! I think your bouquets would look great made up with simply roses, rose buds, and peonies, and perhaps accented with ostrich feathers or jewels. I did include a black feather on your board, but you could use ivory, grey/silver, or purple ones instead. Creating your bouquets with these flowers will create a nice round arrangement, which will be easy to duplicate for your centerpieces as well. I hope this helps give you some ideas!

  2. Perhaps alternate centerpeices with tall clear tower vases and black ostich feathers on some tables and some smaller round arrangements in black or silver containers with the same purple flowers that are in the bouquets.
