Planning a wedding involves creativity and patience. There are many decisions to make and items to
coordinate. One area that can make a large impact on the look and feel of the wedding is, of course, the
flower choices. Choosing cream and red bridal flowers is an easy way to create a lovely, romantic and
festive atmosphere at your special affair.
When used as the flower color scheme for the wedding, cream and red bridal flowers make a strong statement.
Both colors are traditional, refined, and beautiful. While red is fiery and powerful, cream is subdued and
pure. Red flowers, by themselves, are often times overpowering for brides; cream alone can look washed out.
Together, however, this combination is just right, as the two colors offset each other and create the perfect
combination of drama and gentleness.
No matter what color scheme you select for the bridal party, red and cream blooms will add the perfect
touch. If your bridal party is wearing chocolate, tranquil blue (steel), celadon (green), or burgundy,
(to name a few) the red will add a touch of color and the cream will give balance to the whole picture. You
can create a consistent look throughout by choosing bridal party dresses in cream and red; this will create a
stunning combination with the flowers. Finish the design by adding a red sash or trim to your own bridal gown.
There are dozens of ways to use cream and red bridal flowers and to make them match with dresses of all
colors and styles.
When focusing on cream and red, there are an infinite number of options. Choose red roses and white mini
calla lilies for the table arrangements, the bouquets or for both. For a strikingly traditional arrangement
use only roses. Combine red and cream roses for a brilliant composition. Use cream tablecloths or mix and
match red and cream tablecloths and scatter rose petals on each table below the rose vases. Another stunning
option is to amass several red flowers (roses, carnations, or gerberas), and nestle a single cream bud into
the bouquet. Or conversely, a bed of cream calla lilies with a solitary red rose (in full bloom or closed)
makes a dramatic and poignant display. Combine red roses (closed) and cream lilies for an exotic twist to this
fashionable theme. Finally, for a truly unique option, position two or three red alstroemeria or Asiatic
lilies in a bed of cream carnations or mini callas. Guests will be mesmerized by this stunning arrangement.
You canít go wrong with cream and red bridal flowers. There are so many ways to combine these colors into
beautiful and dramatic wedding flower options. These ideas, and so many others like them, can help you to
create a stunning, regal wedding. You will relish in the look during the event, and will enjoy looking back
on your beautiful pictures for years to come.
