Any ideas for flowers for an orange n brown wedding bouquet. I know gerbera daisies come in orange, not sure if they are available this time of year. Anything else and what about the brown.
Any help appreciated.

Orange Asiatic Lilies , Bird of Paradise, orange roses, orange carnations (dyed)

Brown Hypericum, cattails,dyed carnations. You can also use orange flowers and incorporate the brown with ribbons.

Oh yeah, brown ribbon, I thought of cinnamon sticks and so the ribbon would be a great addition.
Bird of Paradise, brilliant! thanks.

Interesting color choice for weddings these days. My Nieces wedding was orange with blue accents. As a wedding favor she had me make up a cd of their favorite love songs which included one written and sung by her brother. The label was a picture of an orange slice. Every guest was given a CD as a keepsake.

Hey Candee, I recommend orange parrot tulips for color and texture. And they should be available this time of year. Chartreuse would be a nice accent color when combined with a pretty chocolate silk ribbon. I like the hypericum idea too. Please post pics when you're done.

Oh I'm not doing it, a friend at work asked for a relative of his and his wife is doing the flowers, but really had not idea where to begin. I said I would get some ideas for him. Thanks everyone and the Orange parrot tulips are a great idea for this time of year.

Hi Candee - do you remember the photo of the Hawaii wedding I posted last month? I loved the orange-brown calla lilies that were part of the bridal bouquet. Her colors were orange, brown and green. My niece's wedding two summers ago was brown and green. Brown is becoming the "in" color. I am more of a maroon person myself. LoL

Oh yes I do recall Dianne, how could one forget that gorgeous setting. I am just surprised that brown and orange are in colors for this time of year I guess, my old fashioned think inside the box head just screams Fall!
