Wedding Flowers by Color: Find Your Perfect Blooms, and DIY Them if You Dare

Posted by Azure on September 27th, 2012

Wedding flowers, wedding flowers, how I love you! And floral geniuses like Kelly Oshiro of Santa Barbara Chic make DIYing gorgeous bridal bouquets and centerpieces look like a cake walk. But remember, Kelly didn't learn all her tricks overnight! So when you embark on your first wedding flower DIY (five fabulous options below!), approach it with a can-do attitude, a good sense of humor, and lots of patience and love!

Pink - Delicious and wild, this cascading bridal bouquet is a DIY dream! It requires just three main ingredients- vines of beautiful, bright clematis flowers, mint, and the ribbon of your choice (to wrap the handle). See Kelly Oshiro's how-to here!

Red - Rustic elegance with a touch of vintage inspiration, you can't go wrong with red and burgundy blooms plus brass, gold, and vintage glass vases. Kelly used dahlias, cosmos, scabiosa, and mondara for the flowers, and you can find out how to DIY here.

Jewel Tones - Pink and red didn't always get along, but these days, they go together like peanut butter and jelly! Focusing on jewel toned wedding blooms, Kelly used fuchsia peonies, red astilbe, umbrella fern, purple anemones and more, to create one uber romantic wedding centerpiece perfect for the ceremony or reception. Learn how to DIY it right here!

Cream + Peach - What's more romantic than a creamy, dreamy bridal bouquet of garden roses, tulips, Queen Anne's lace, and eucalyptus? Not much! And the lace ribbon tie makes it over the top beautiful! See how you can make this gorgeous bouquet at home here.

Blue + Gray - I adore dusty miller for the luxe texture it adds to wedding flower arrangements. And when paired with blue thistle and eryngium purple magic, the end result is rich, modern, and perfect for your Something Blue! Head to Santa Barbara Chic for the full DIY!
