Dark purple would be pretty and throw in a little green to get peacock colors?


I would maybe do a simple hydrangia centerpiece ontop of a mirrior to mirrior (literally reflect them and also mirror the shape of) the lantern, like this maybe:Dark purple would be photo 48071-1


With something like this on other tables:


Dark purple would be photo 48071-2


Just a thought.


Or you could do somthing very linear and clean in that space..... like callas

How about green and white floral centerpieces, somewhat along the lines of the floral arrangements at aching's wedding?  That might go very well with the chic, natural feel of your venue.  Gorgeous dress, by the way!  It's just stunning!

I'm not sure their availability, but have you looked into Chocolate Cosmos? I just saw some on fiftyflowers.com.

Dirty I like turquoise but I need a color that flowers come in. :) I was thinking of using Ivory possibily as a third color but not sure


Oh and I forgot to add my FMIL is a wholesale florist, so I can get any kind of flowers I want.

the florist I am using wanted to use those little square vases, but I am just not feeling something that low. I think If I had some flowers to go off of it might be easier...

My color scheme is very similar and rather than try to pull my colors into my florals, I'll be incorporating them into other details (e.g. linens, stationary, favors, etc...) It's just too hard to match flowers to that color scheme. So, I'm alternating tall and short centerpieces and using all white (w/ some green) florals. For our smaller centerpieces, we're doing small rectangular vases packed with submerged roses. And for our tall centerpieces we're doing something like this (found on party concierge) but with all white flowers.


My color scheme is photo 48147-1


So, i guess you could say that white is our third color? I think a crisp white against the aqua and chocolate  is so sophisticated!

You could use ivory photo 48171-1

You could use ivory or white, which is always chic.  Here are blue flowers above.  You could also accent in a light yellow/ cream color...
