Color help

i am getting married in October on the 17th. My wedding colors are light sage green and dark brown, truffel. I am trying to stay away from the traditional fall wedding colors, orange, red, brown, yellow for my flowers and of course can't find any sage colored or brown flowers. Anyone have any ideas on what type of flowers would look best with my color combo and not look too fall, I don't want to use white or cream colored flowers. We are getting married outside on the water.

    White or light blues would go. Thats about all i can say. my FI's one request was colors.. so we are doing orange, yellow and white.. if i had it my way it would be like aqua blue and red.

    Oh and you can look on the knot photo galleries and narrow it down to only brown wedding and look at their flowers!

    To add a pop of color, I think purple would look fabulous. Something like this:[img]<a href="http://tinyurl.com/69f3z5" rel='nofollow'>http://tinyurl.com/69f3z5</a>[/img]Although it's not sage, green wouldn't be a bad color in my opinion either. Think green orchids, mums or hydrangea. Maybe something like this:[img]<a href="http://tinyurl.com/mx4z36" rel='nofollow'>http://tinyurl.com/mx4z36</a>[/img]

    Blue would work, or even pinks. Here are some swatches so you can see what you think looks best colorwise. [img]<a href="http://tinyurl.com/mrdps2" rel='nofollow'>http://tinyurl.com/mrdps2</a>[/img]

    Eggplant (deep purple) or almost a pale peach color would look great with those colors, too.

    This inspiration board uses a sort of gold color and champagne with some green flowers and it looks pretty good:http://www.stylemepretty.com/2007/10/09/fall-wedding-palette/A few of those pics are mostly cream/white flowers,  but they bring in the green accents in the flowers, too.I've also seen sage used with peacock feather accents, which can look really good, especially in the fall. I LOVE the purple/magenta above, too!  How are you planning to use the colors?  That can make a difference, too.

    I just looked at the color wheel and anything in the purple family will really make it pop. I'd also recommend that you just talk with a florist. When i met with our florist, I thought we'd just go with whites and greens to go along with the blue BM dresses. Met with him and he suggested we add coral to make the blue really pop. PS: we're date twins and I have the same attitude about staying away from fall colors.

    I still love the purple, but I thought of you today when I went to the stylemepretty site.  They're showcasing a BEAUTIFUL wedding today with these gorgeous truffle bm dresses, green flowers (with some white/ivory, but fresh and modern and heavy on the greens), brownish suits for the groomsmen with these amazing green ties.  Lots of great accents, too.  You could probably use some of these ideas with the purple, too.
