Bright Tropical Flowers

Hi girls! I have been searching for pictures/ideas for my flowers but haven't really found anything that I love yet. My BM dresses are bright purple, and I was hoping to do bright flowers (orange maybe) to contrast. I like the idea of doing tropical hawaiin flowers, but haven't seen it done well. Do they just not look right in bouquets? Any suggestions will be much appreciated!

    Are talking like hibiscus? They are one of my favorite flowers but they would probably look funny in a bouquet. I had an orange bouquet with lilies, roses and orchids. PIB I think. I wanted it a little darker orange but all those flowers come in brighter orange. I am not a huge fan of daisies for weddings but they come in a super bright orange too.

    Hibiscus are beautiful but they close up in two seconds if they don't have a source of water. My mother wore one in her hair once and it looked dead within an hour, lol.

    This bouquet has some ginger flowers in it, those could work really nicely and they're fairly hardy. They come in a nice variety of bright pinks. http://t3.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:v_YXHDpO30tM7M:http://i254.photobucket.com/albums/hh99/magusfloral/GingerBouquet.jpg&t=1

    There's also this one which also makes good use of tropical leaves and bright colours. http://t1.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcSTTf-xkd5fJ47y1PLtPPEwtQjzd_BxURFwWZBdkiq66AOMKzU&t=1&usg=__ipNq_YCLK1LMDwpqbx8u3IUFOnI=

    I like the bright colors. Hibiscus, Orchids, bright orange lilies, bird of paradise, bromeliad, pincushion protea, mandovila, anthurium, Star of Bethlehem, and alstromeria will all make good tropical wedding flowers. I think the color and your idea sounds really pretty!

    Using tropical flowers will add quite a bit to your floral costs.  You can use mostly simple flowers in bright colors (roses, carnations, daisies, etc...), then add just a few tropical blooms to each bouquet. 

    A few lilies, orchids, freesias, etc... added to a simple but brightly colored bouquet will give you an exotic look without breaking the bank.
