Coral Bouquet Inspiration

Well friends, it turns out I've chosen the Color of the Season as my wedding color!  Coral, Honeysuckle, Rose, whatever you want to call it, it's popular.  Given that so many other brides will be using similar elements in their weddings, I wanted to share my collection of inspiration photos.

I'll lessen the suspense - I won't be making my own bouquets.  My bridesmaids rallied against me and forbade it, insisting on me relaxing instead (gotta love 'em).

My bridesmaids dresses will be various shades, shapes, and textures, and I want that theme to come through the flowers as well, so I plan to go with a mix of blooms in shades of coral.  My wedding planner is making the, and she may use hydrangea, calla lily, gerbera daisy, ranunculus, mums, billy balls, roses, garden roses, peonies, carnations, lilies, hibiscus, dahlia, or hypericum!

I had originally thought adding pops of blue or yellow would be fun,  but I'm worried about them being too crazy, so I think I'll avoid them.  Same thing with lots of greenery (maybe).  They're pretty though, for an arrangement or against all-matching dresses!

Oh, and we can't forget the boys!  I thought the ones below made from fabric were just darling, and the live flowers are beautiful as well!

I can't wait to share the final results!!!
