Ask Colin: Flowers & Décor


We’re having a summer wedding in Colorado. I would love to combine cobalt blue bridesmaids dresses with some pinks, greens, purples and light blues in flowers. The bridesmaids and I will be wearing cowboy boots with our dresses. It's a little country and lots of fun! Any suggestions?

Since you’ll be married during the summer and with country flair, look for flowers with texture and softness. Columbine is a soft and sweet combination of white and indigo that will look great against lisianthus and scabiosa. You could also use bluebells to accent a white bouquet. If you’re leaning more pink, cabbage roses are softer and more full than their traditional cousins. And you can’t go wrong with bouquets of fresh wildflowers that look like you’ve just come back from picking them yourselves!
