Great flowers that come in shades of honeydew, including cymbidium orchids, roses, and hydrangea work best for this cool combo. Don’t forget the men of the wedding party–they have many options as well when it comes to flowers. To help narrow down your options, select a matching flower from the bridesmaid bouquet that you have designed.

Décor This group of colors can work for various decor, including romantic, tropical, and country-chic. For a romantic focus, concentrate on simplicity and small pops of color. For tropical – be bold and use your colors wisely!
