Flowers

Here's a challenge for you

So, my wedding colors are lavender, silver and white. My flowers are all roses.

My fiance looooves red roses. I want to find a way to incorporate it in the wedding somehow, but I can't think of a way. He has said himself that it wouldn't work with anything else and left it at that, but I want to surprise him. Any ideas? Thanks!

    You could carry a red rose bouquet--and have your girls carry white.

    He could have a red rose bout--he doesn't have to match the others.

    You could wear a red rose fascinator in your hair--even if it's just for the reception.

    That's all I can think of.  You could always do something at the RD too.

    ETA:  Red rose petals to line your aisle.

    I love a little lavender in with red roses.  Like red roses and purple limonium. 

    Weddings don't have to be a certain color, and not everything has to match.  The reception flowers don't have to match your "wedding colors" or the BM dresses.

    I think the idea of you carrying a red bouquet is cute if he wants red roses. That way not only will he get to see you walking down the aisle, but he'll get to see the roses for the first time too. Or you could just put a few red ones sprinkled in to other flower arrangements.

    I couldn't find the picture I was looking for, but this has purple, white, and red roses, and it looks lovely.

    Ditto the red rose bouquet for you and a red rose bout for him.  Then all the WP flowers can be in your wedding colors and the two of you will stick out with his fav : )
