3 floral bouquets to go with Pistachio color dresses

Large wedding party

We’re back and in full Spring mode here in Texas.  We have cold, hot, cold again temperatures and I don’t think we’re through!   This time one month from now we will be wishing for these cooler temps.  This weather is only difficult if any of you are planning outdoor weddings.  My one request….PLEASE have a back up plan. Sometimes the wind is worse than the rain!  Enough of the soap box…………

This month we are talking about PISTACHIO  bridesmaids dresses!  This is not new to this industry but has popped back in with a twist.  I have seen all shades from the palest mint green to what I have brides call “Pantone Turquoise”  which really doesn’t’ look like turquoise at all….more of a brighter Jade color.

Anyway, here we go:


All green bouquetYou just wouldn’t believe how many green flowers we have available to us now.  It doesn’t have to be boring and it doesn’t have to be all greenery either!

Try, roses, orchids, viburnum, button mums, calla lilies, lady’s mantle, amaranthus, hypericum (coffee berries) and more.

This combination is so refreshing and “clean”  and is what I consider softer in photos.  The idea is to go for lots of texture here.











bridesmaids with bouquets What a great combination of colors right next to each other on the color wheel!   Try pale yellow to light green to bright green.  Your dresses will POP  in photos.  Plus this is a great time of year to use bright yellow!

Sometimes yellow is a hard color to work with because it tends to take over.  But tone it down with some lighter greens and yellow greens and you are good to go.

Here is another analogous using the green blue combination (one of my favorites)  This is from my collection and was taken at the Marty Leonard Chapel here in Fort Worth.  Wow!   This bouquet was actually what the bride carried and the bridesmaids had all color with no white.

Peach and pink Since green and red are opposites on the color wheel  then it seems right that lighter yellow/green would be complimentary with lighter yellow/red (orange or peach!) Yes that’s right and they look fabulous together in the Spring.  Plus, there are probably more shades of peach, orange, and coral flowers than  any others colors.  If you love the peach and peachy/coral look use it now!

Try dahlias, tulips, orchids, lilies, roses ( of course!) peonies (every brides favorite) , calla lilies, gerbera daisies, coffee berries, ranunculus, protea and much much more. The combinations are endless here and will be the brightest  contrast against your dresses.


The bride can still choose to carry all white or white/ivory  but consider adding  some touches of soft champagne or pale peach to go with these bouquets. that way, your flowers sort of b l e n d  into each other and make the look more cohesive.

Here are some other shots I did not want to leave out this month. All deserve some attention here.
