Selecting a color scheme:
A color scheme is always a good way to link the entire event and bring harmony to the scene. The wedding color chosen for the time of year is equally important. The choice of wedding colors must be the special preference of the bride and certainly can vary from deep purples and reds to periwinkle blue and butter cream. No matter what the setting — from ballroom to living room, from private garden to public park or beach, your flowers will serve to enhance the decor of your venue.

Take time to look at other wedding colors schemes in books or magazines, and note how the weather and the light will affect the coloring that have been used. Keep in mind that light weather, natural or artificial can change the true color of a flower.

Considering the color scheme of your venue:
The church colorings can have an influence on the scheme as well. If there is a very strong element, such as a deep blue carpet or bright red pew cushions, these might need to be considered. This may all seem of little importance, but the end result will fully justify the time taken to get it right.

Colors for your bridal bouquet:
With hundreds of choices comes the challenge of hundreds of possibilities. The correct choice depends of course, on the bride’s taste and preference. The goal is to convey personality through color and style.When the bride prefers to carry out a monochromatic color with the gown and flower color, wedding flowers should be bold with a range of color values, forms and textures.

Colors for your bridesmaid's bouquets:
The wedding color you selected for bridesmaids’ bouquets should carry through the color harmony and the ambiance of the ceremony decorations. Usually, flowers in rich colors that contrast with gown colors create the most impressive attendant’s bouquets. Using a contrasting wedding color makes the flowers stand out and become a visually important focal point of the wedding picture.

Weddings are dreams come true, and the magic of the moment would be incomplete without your wedding flowers and colors being perfect.
