Bouquet colour help please for Pearl dress

Tue May 10, 2011 4:45 pm

I am having a lollipop boquet but i am unsure what colour to have with my dress.

It is pearl which to me is like a rich cream colour so i dont know what to have.

When i spoke to a florist she said she would do a tea colour, cream and white rose together. Should i do something like that for my lollipops too even though our theme colour is dark teal?

IMO the dark teal green would be too much in a bouquet so i am stuck!

You could use her suggestions for the main body of the bouquet and then do a layer of teal around the bottom of the bouquet like brides with floral bouquets have leaves around the bottom. The pics give you an idea :D

Manda, could you have a mixture of the teal and cream lollypops?

Claud, i can have up to 3 colours together in the lollipop but they all have to be the same. Do you think the dark would be too much, too dark i mean?

Oh, now I get it, the three colours in the actual lolly, not three different coloured lollypops.

Hmmm, does she have any examples of the teal colour?

Would it be too expensive to get the teal and cream lollie pops as well as just some cream ones? That might break it up a bit and you get your colour without it over powering. Then you could have a teal ribbon or something around them as well. Sorry if thats no help, I don't really know how they work. :D

I can only have one kind of lollipops as they have to make them so to make two lots would be way too expensive. But in that one kind i can have up to 3 colours so maybe i could have cream, teal and something else....

Maybe cream, a latte sort of colour and teal? that way they're mainly creamish with just a pop of colour in the centre?

I am thinking this might be a good plan... I guess i dont have to use a colour as dark as my teal.

I am just unsure of bringing in another colour to the mix so i dont want to go pink or red...

I immediately thought strawberries and cream, but you don't want pink so that's not very helpful is it :roll:

Hahahaha well what do you think about bringing in another colour? Would it look weird? Keeping in mind that the same pops will be used as favours also.
