Question from Sherry:
Hi my name is Sherry and I am getting married October 16, 2010. The colors I would like are silver, white and royal blue, but I am not sure what color I should have my flowers. Can you help me?
Answer from Wedding Expert Angela:
Hi Sherry, and congratulations on your upcoming wedding. Silver, white and royal blue are a beautiful combination. Both white and silver are neutral, so that leaves you open to a lot of colour combinations. Check out this video on choosing your wedding colours, as it will give you many choices.
A big part of what colours to choose depends upon your particular style, and how formal or informal your wedding is. If you are going with a predominantly white decor, with splashes of colour, you could go with blue and pink flowers. Blue goes well with pink and a lime green. Blue goes with melon, purple, and other shades of blue.
A quiet sophisticated look would include shades of the same colour. A bolder look could use melon. Have you discussed your flowers with your florist? Your florist is your flower specialist, and knows not only what flowers are in season within your budget, but how to create the look you are trying to achieve.
So many colours go well with blue—yellow, orange/melon, pink, red, green—that it really depends upon the rest of your decor, and what style or theme you are trying to achieve. A simple bouquet with white and blue flowers can be quite stunning. It’s not so much the colours, but how they are put together that gives you your look. Consult with your florist for your options. Good luck.
