I have spoken a little about my love of peach coloured flowers in a wedding,…I could see myself as peach/apricot bride, but at the flower shop, these brides seem to be the hardest to please! Peach is such a varied range of colours, it could be a bit more orange, it could be a bit more pink….

This past weekend at work we had a peach bride and she was not happy with her bouquets…. so here we were, 10mins before they walk down the aisle,  madly remaking bouquets!! Not something I would recommend for anyones stress levels!! She didnt think that the flowers were ‘peach’ coloured, so opted to exchange flowers for a white option.

Now, the consensus i am getting from my workplace is that there just isnt many options for peach flowers. I understand that it is a difficult to define colour but since I am madly in love this coloured flower, I want to to do some digging around to see what potential peach(ish) flowers exist for all you future peach brides!

Well, first up would have to be the rose, a elegant option year round.

There are many other flowers and varieties that can pass as peach but depending on mother nature, lighting, what they are paired with and personal opinion…anyone could disagree! Im sure you will agree that ‘peach’ can mean so many colours and I now understand why it is so hard to please a peach bride!

I am starting to believe that peach in a wedding should be selected with another colour…like peach and creams, or peach and yellows and peach whites….as this colour flower tends to have a tinge of something else in each shade. And I prefer a mix of different flowers for texture and best effect. Here is a little peach inspiration to finish off…

The next 3 images are from the sweetest occasion. Love this wedding

I think the moral of the story is that if you see yourself as a peach/ apricot bride…remember all these images and remember how peach can mean so many different things! But personally, I think if its what you want, its worth persevering!…I know I will! (Just arm yourself with an image of what you want, aim for the ‘look or feel’ and try to be forgiving on the day as mother nature doesn’t always conform to your colour chart!)

At the moment I am loving a soft romantic bouquets and arrangements that include corals, peaches, blush pinks, silvers and greys. This colour scheme is timeless, feminine and subtle. It says wedding without the harshness of a stark white colour palette.

Sigh! They make me so happy.

Here is a selection of bouquets that a think have such a gorgeous mix of these colours and a posie so relaxed and fuss-free they look as though brides have swooped them from the garden themselves…love!!!!!

Next up are some images from the amazingly talented lady Joy thigpen….her designs, selections and pairings are an inspiration to me

I love the soft complimentary ribbon on this bouquet, I think a bronze ribbon would be equally beautiful!

I think I am zeroing in on this colour scheme for my own wedding! It lends itself to a fancy wedding and also to more of my style- a more rustic barn wedding teamed with some beautiful natural wood tables and candlelight…sigh!!!
