While we're on the topic of hideous...




I was google searching flower pictures and came across this. Now, is it just me, or is this the worst color combination you have ever seen?

    And such an awful use of bear grass too.  My DD had bear grass on the WP bouquets, and it was beautifully done.  That's just horrible!

    I didn't mind the flowers so much until I saw the band of the bride's dress which is red.

    I agree, Trix. That grass is like a cage, covering the flowers. I find it really unnecessary.

    Why is she doing a red dress with purple and orange flowers???  Was there maybe a mistake in the colors of the flowers?  OUCH.  This is terrible.

    I think the orange and purple flowers would actually be acceptable if the dress didn't have RED on it...and she should have skipped the bear grass "cage" on the bouquet...

    Oh, GOD!

    Now I know most people are saying "Oh, the orange wouldn't be so bad if the dress didn't have red on it". Not me. 90% of the time, when I see orange flowers, I want to scream.

    Maybe it's just me having 'Nam flashbacks of my BSC friend's wedding, but large quantities of orange just should not be allowed ... maybe if there was no red, and the purple to orange ratio was switched, I could live ... but this just "makes me feel sorry for her DH", lol.

    CT, this is weird, for all of my hatred of orange and orange flowers, I actually love orange roses.

    I mean, as far as a wedding flower goes, it totally depends on the color scheme (And like, what color the dresses are)-which is my take on orange flowers in wedding to begin with ... but take "wedding" out of the equation, and I love orange roses.

    When DH and I first started dating, he used to give me different flowers because "any guy can buy any girl red roses". So he'd give me different types of flowers, or just  "unique" colored roses. One of my favorites was a dozen gorgeous orange roses ... I raved about them for weeks, lol.

    Oh, I love different colored roses...red is common (and lovely no doubt) but give me something unusual - orange or those gorgeous pinks that are all different shades - the ones that range from soft pink to bright, sort of fuscia colored all in one bouquet - gorgeous!

    I also hate the color orange but CT's avatar doesn't bother me.

    This. The grass is NMS, but the flower colors aren't bad. Paired with the red, though, it is not a good look.

    Yuck.  I would love the bouquet if it weren't for the beargrass.  The way it's done, it looks like headgear.

    Ick.  I'm not real big on orange flowers to begin with....certainly not paired with a red band on the bridesmaid's dress.  I wonder if there was an issue with the florist or flower availability.  Icky.
