As a silk wedding flower designer and a wedding planner of almost 10 years I would suggest the following; Chocolate Cosmos, mixed with either pink and/or cream roses, peonies, or ranunculus. You could also mix in pink or cream calla lilies, or tulips. Depending on when your wedding is and the level of formality I would be happy to give you more detailed suggestions.
Pink roses or carnations. I'm sure your florist could even recommend some cream colored ones. As far as the chocolate, it wouldn't surprise me if florists would have some floral spray in that color. If you want to do silk ones, some of the larger hobby/craft stores might have chocolate colored silks.
My daughter's wedding will be March of 2013. She has chosen precious metals as her color scheme: bronze, gold, and pewter and wants cream calla lilies. We would like candles and flowers at the reception tables. What type and color flowers would you recommend?
I think sunflowers would match also lillies work too lol
What color and type of flowers should I choose to go with wedding colors of turquoise, raspberry and ivory?

I'm having a fall outdoor wedding. Ivory and wine are the main colors. (My dress is ivory, bridesmaids: wine). We will be having two accent colors, both mothers of bride and groom will be in navy and purple. Should I go darker shade flowers to match or lighter shade? We will be using artificial flowers. Should I stick to colors that match exactly or can I mix it up with like mauve, etc.? if so, what colors?

I should mention that my bridesmaids wore navy blue. One of them asked if I would have to change my flowers since orange and blue "clash". I have an art background so I know they "complement". I muted the warm colors and added small blue flowers, too. It was beautiful.
I would stay away from pastels in the fall, they are more suited to spring and summer. Good luck and remember to keep it fun. It isn't the wedding so much as the marriage. (06/28/2007)
