My Kind of Colors

I just found this bouquet from Scarlet Petal, a Chicago based florist and I am just smitten.  The orange and pink are fun and bright and would be perfect with my cobalt blue bridesmaids dresses.





The clock is ticking on my planning- this past weekend marked 6 months till my big day.  I'm not so stressed yet, but I know the time is coming.

Glorious, timeless and fresh!
My palette was navy - cream and white - but that was 23 years ago. Maybe now I would add color like this...
I had gardenia's and white's and the tables had fruits- for fall -

You might cringe when I tell you this but we used latex flowers for our wedding. I know I know. BUT I was getting married back home & needed *everything* done ahead of time. You might want to check out the website of the girl who did our flowers. Even if its just for ideas...

I used the pink & white cymbidium orchids and the looked and felt AMAZINGLY real. Even my bridesmaids couldn't tell. Plus I only spent about $400 for 5 bouquets, 9 boutts, & 6 corsages and all the shipping.

Those were basically our wedding colors too! I like the idea of a darker cobalt blue though...we used more of a sky blue. Our flowers were dahlias in shades of oranges and pinks to look like the sun setting.
