Here at the Great British Florist we know that lots of Brides have a very specific vision of how they want their wedding to look, and the flowers are no exception. However sometimes it's difficult to know which flowers compliment what other colours and you just need a little bit of inspiration about what colours to choose. Well, don't fret because we've put together a few posts with a handful of popular colour combinations, which have been used in recent weddings. A Lighter Shade of Blue Main Colours - Pale Blue, Whites, Creams and Greens Example Flowers - Thistle, Stocks, Seedheads, Blooms and even dried flowers.
