Floral Friday - Brown & Red

Hello everyone and welcome to another (late) Floral Friday!
If you are having your wedding with a Brown and Red colour palette, you may find difficulty finding brown flowers, unless you are using silk flowers. There are other things that you can use with your bouquet for a touch of brown, like using fiddle leaf in the bouquet or wrapping them with brown ribbon for example. However, there is a plethora of red flowers in all shades and sizes for you to choose from. So, I would definitely recommend using red flowers as the base for your bouquets. If simply using red is too overwhelming for you, you can can always add some ivory or white accents or even some greenery. Lets take a look at some floral inspirations.

These all red bouquets include roses, tulips, and red anthurium. Plus, the bouquets are on right are tied with both red and brown ribbons!

The bouquet on the left uses roses in a light shades of red and another rose in a much darker shade that almost appears as brown. The bouquet on the right uses a multitude of red flowers, including roses, calla lilies, mums, and even berries.

Here we see a two variations on the use of red flowers, greenery, and berries. Plus, check out the bridesmaid dresses - brown and red!

On the left we see simple, yet classic, red roses. On the right the bouquet consists wholly of red gerbera daisies, which I think gives the bouquet a nice "fall feel" because they look very similar to mums.

Right now, I am totally falling for pomanders! This one also uses a combination or red roses and red berries, and just think about how gorgeous it would look on the end of brown silk ribbon!


A classic red rose is used for a more traditional feel on the left, whereas on the right there is a much greater feeling of fun and whimsy that is created by the red button mum and the curly springs.

The boutonniere on the left is a great accent for a fall themed wedding, since it uses little stalks of wheat as decoration.

You're invited to a Weekend Wedding later this afternoon and don't forget to cast your vote for this week's theme. And remember, comments are always welcomed and appreciated!
