When choosing your wedding flowers you must always keep in mind that, while many flowers come in a variety of colors, some colors are just not natural to certain types of flowers. Take roses for example, they have a wide variety of colors to choose from, such as red, yellow, white, pink, purple, orange, and many colors in-between. They even can come in green, but never blue; blue is just not a natural color for roses. Another good example would be delphinium, if you choose this flower, your only option for colors are blue and white.
An important thing to consider when choosing your wedding flowers is the color of your dress, as well as your bridesmaid's dresses. You can choose to coordinate or contrast the color of your flowers with your dress and your bridesmaid's dresses.
If your wedding dress is going to be white or ivory, you will not have any problems choosing any color for your bouquet. You can choose colors to match the color of your bridesmaids' dresses, or have your bouquet all white or ivory to match your own dress. There are some brides are uncertain about using white flowers in-front of a white dress, but a way to get around this is to add an array of dark green leaves and other foliage around the bridal bouquet, making your bouquet stand out beautifully against your dress.
If you are wearing a colored dress, then more thought should to go into choosing the color of your bouquet. White wedding flowers always look wonderful against a colored dress, but there are still many other options to choose from. You could choose a monochromatic color scheme and use flowers that are shades of the color of your wedding dress. For example, if your dress is pink, you could choose flowers that consist of hot pinks and paler pinks, even adding just a touch of red would look beautiful. Another option you have would be to use a complementary color; the direct opposite color on the color wheel. Therefor, if you have a purple dress, your bouquet could consist of flowers that are primarily yellow and paler yellows. The other complementary colors are red and green, and blue and orange. Using complementary colors will give your bouquet an appealing contrast with your dress, and will provide a natural color harmony to your overall look.
Many brides base their wedding color themes around the colors of the season in which their wedding is being held.
