Burgundy and Navy have been on the hot trend train in bridal bouquets and wedding flowers for most of the last year and a half. I’ve done several silk wedding flowers incorporating these colors together, but never like together, together. It’s always been using navy as a slight accent or with the ribbon. So my challenge with these wedding flowers was to make sure that these bouquets in no way made anyone want to stand up and say the Pledge of Allegiance. There is a reason these colors look great together, but that’s not what we were going for.
Navy can be limiting in your wedding flowers, but not impossible! I found these dark blue roses and then a lighter dusty blue heather to include more blue tones. The burgundy Ranunculus added the perfect amount of moodiness for these fall wedding flowers without it being too much. The ivory roses, peonies and daisies provided great contrast for the darker colors to really pop against. I chose a darker greenery, Smilax, to keep the dark jewel tones and maintain the overall feel of these flowers.
The boutonnieres and corsages had ivory roses as their base because they are perfect for that. Then a little navy accent here, a dash of burgundy there and a sprinkle of rhinestones made for some really classy personal flowers.
