I like the idea of contrasting flowers. Navy is such a pretty color for a bridesmaids dress.

Navy looks excellent with almost any color flower -- I suggest using a multicolor bouquet in bright colors.

I got married in June (15 years ago!) and had bridesmaids in navy carrying bouquets with red roses, fuschia (spelled right? I mean bright dark pink), yellow and orange lillies, and purple/blue iris. They were gorgeous, and the navy set them off perfectly!

My sister is getting married this October, and also has us in navy, and is doing multicolor bouquets -- just with more seasonal Fall colors, rather than my more Summer-y ones.

If you wanted the teal somehow tied in, you could have them tied with a teal ribbon...

Currently maintaining within 5 lbs. (+ or -) of goal. I weigh daily, but also use a tape measure and the fit of my clothes to guage how well I'm doing.

Dont worry your florist is a master at these things and will be able to come up with something beautiful. Take swatches of all your dresses linens and such.

To go with the blues I am a big fan of different shades of orange, but not necessarily the pink and yellow.

My wedding is November 10 of this year. Tomorrow I have an appointment w/ a florist to talk about the flowers for bouquets and centerpieces.

I am having navy blue bridesmaid gowns, white linens, blue and teal napkins, and a blue and teal candy buffet.

Would bright orange, yellow and pink flowers look right? What other colors or types of flowers might work? I'm very bad at visualizing these things in my mind. Help!

Take care of your body with steadfast fidelity. The soul must see through these eyes alone, and if they are dim, the whole world is clouded.
