Pink for wedding flowers.
Now it's time talk about yellow. In the past 2 months alone, we have done 6 weddings (including one that we are doing this coming weekend) with yellow as the predominant color theme. For our bride Jihan we mixed lavenders, creams and buttery yellows using a mixture of hydrangea, tulips and roses for an elegant spring mixture and an accent of lime green foliage softened the look.
Another dramatic combination has been yellow and steel grey. Our bride Jen used a mixture of forsythia branches, roses and orchids in shades of yellow to create her beach themed wedding. Accents of platinum along with soft yellows were an unexpected but gorgeous combination. Even her bouquet carried the theme using fragrant yellow freesia.
A very convenient aspect of using this color theme is that there are so many gorgeous flowers that come in various shades of yellow. Orchids, roses, freesia, tulips, dahlias, mum, carnations, alstroemeria, asters and lilies are all wonderful choices for wedding flower designs. Red looks wonderful with so many different colors such as rich reds, deep purples, creamy whites, peaches and shades of orange, deep and pale blues and lime green.
There's no question: choosing wedding colors is one of the earliest, trickiest tasks a bride has to cross off the list. Choose well and you'll probably love anything your florist designs for you and yellow is always a wonderful choice!
