Flower Colors

Hi everyone!
I need some help deciding colors for my bridal bouquet, my maitron of honor bouquet and flowergirl flowers. My dress is diamond white, my maitron of honors dress is dove gray and my three little flower girls (all toddlers) are in peach dresses. I know that I want the flower colors to be white and peach and I'm thinking a combination of dahlias, old-fashioned roses and maybe calla lillies.

What color do you think my bouquet, my maitron of honor's (I don't have any other bridesmaids) and flower girl flowers should be?

Also, what about the groom and best man's bouttenires?

Thanks!!

What about a deeper peach to stand off of the dove grey and white

I opted for white/ivory flowers for my BMs and MOH (their dresses are in deep red, PIB). My bouquet will be deep red. IMO, the beauty of the bouquets get lost since it blend it with the dresses color so I interchange the color. So I agree with the pp go with a darker peach so it will stand out.

For the MOH/BM & Flowergirls, I would use a combo of dark peach and burnt orange. As for your - a mixed bouquet of white/ivory, peach, and dark peach.

For my MOH/BMs bouquet I went with vendella roses, mauve orchids, and green coffee berries. And for myself, white/ivory roses, mauve orchids, and green coffee berries.

I like the idea of different shades of peach with white. There are also some greens that are almost silvery colored that your florist can add in with the flowers to complement the gray matron of honor dresses. Where are you getting married? Congrats! Meg

Well, I hope I don't get kicked off for saying this but I'm actually Canadian getting married in Comox (on Vancouver Island BC). I couldn't find a good equivalent website for my area, hope nobody minds!
I'm having an outdoor garden wedding in a beautiful park right on the water. It's going to be a small affair but I have 3 *adorable* flower girls who will be 2 1/2, 2 and 18mo at the wedding!! I think I willjust have the oldest, Ruth (my neice) formally walk down the aisle with petals since I'm a little worried that the others will cry, or something! They all have peach colored dresses and I thought I could have all 3 in the portraits ect... What do you guys think, is it worth risking a temper tantum in order to have 3 little flowergirls?

Its okay! I'm a person with no land, but there really is no equivalent site, pw.com is great! They're a little young but maybe your MOH can walk them down the aisle, hold their hand, carry the little one, etc?

Hmmm... That could work!
We have a best man that we though might walk with MOH down the aisle. Maybe MOH could carry littlest one, plus hold the hand of another FG and then best man could hold the hand of the last FG...

Now we're getting somewhere, thanks!
