Need inspiration...

My original thought for my wedding flowers was to use orhids and/or lillies because they have been my favorite flowers for quite some time. I have always wanted to steer clear of roses because they just didn't appeal to me. HOWEVER, I was very lucky to have a friend of my family offer to give me an amazing price on any type or color of rose that I wanted. After checking out flower prices I can't pass this up but am a little stuck....
We have decided to have chocolate brown and light blue or maybe teal color for our colors. I immediately thought maybe white roses but I'm not very knowledgable in the flower department. A friend suggested I have the florist use dye to color the roses blue but for some reason that didn't seem... natural. lol I was just wondering if anyone has any suggestion on rose colors that might complement my color scheme or even some fun ideas for centerpieces or other decorations.
Thanks for your time girls. =)

    Well, "natural" colors of roses are red, white/cream and yellow for the most part.  If you want natural, you'll have to go with them....if not, they'll most likely have to be dyed.

    I'd go with all white roses, and ask if blue hydrangea can be inserted as well. I peeked at your bio and see that you are getting married next June, and that's when hydrangeas bloom around here. Plus, online wholesale sites sell blue hydrangeas year round. Check (floral link at top), also

    To answer your question, however, white always goes with everything. All white roses are lovely and could be coordinated with your other wedding colors with other flowers.

    Good luck.

    All white or ivory roses would be my first choice too, or maybe a soft blush color (very pale peachy-pink color).

    If you want to add some contrast and color, pink or peach, either soft pastels, or more vivid hot pink or coral shades.

    I don't care for matchy-matchy "artificial" colors or dyed flowers, they usually look so fake and gaudy.

    I would go with white/cream. If you want some added color why not include some lilies in your bouquet and use a lily for the groom's bout. That way you save money by using mostly roses but you still get your favorite flower.

     I see obviously dyed flowers and I think well that's not natural. I've just never been big on the "dyed" look.

    Yikes!  I'm definitely in the "do not used dyed flowers" camp.  White/ivory roses are absolutely gorgeous.  Go for it!!

    Best of luck!
