Turquoise Weddings

If you are a soon-to-be bride, one of the questions you may be asking is "What are the popular wedding colors this year?

Believe it or not, the hot color for 2010 is turquoise! This color is eye-catching, bold and modern and is especially perfect for destination weddings at the beach! Now, there aren't any true "turquoise" colored flowers. But that doesn't mean you can't have that color for your wedding if your heart is set on it!

Turquoise is an intricate color that can lean in many different directions, from the true turquoise that we all know from southwest jewelry, to a more peacock blue-green, to aqua.

If you just must have a turquoise flower, there are excellent floral paints available to florists now, giving us many options for coloring blooms just the right shade. Done properly, they are subtle and beautiful.

Pulling the color in through accents such as ribbons
and wire is another option. Turquoise works well
with certain greens; is beautiful with pinks, both hot pink and soft pink: and adds zing to browns. I love how this bride bucked tradition and went with turquoise shoes! And look how a turquoise wrap makes these sunflowers pop!

At Bloomers, we have lots of ideas for your wedding. Call us anytime for a FREE consultation!
