Why you need to add mauve to your color scheme

Why you need to add mauve to your color scheme

Ahhh.. mauve! The perfect in-between color for pink and purple. In the wedding world now, its not about a cut-and-dry color scheme you go with like navy and coral. Its all about picking two colors, then following with the shades in between. In the example above, I chose the Lilacs and the Peony, then blended the pinks and purples together from there. This gives depth and dimension to your floral designs, and prevents color-clashing. I cannot tell you how many weddings I have had to get the color “mint” or “coral” clarified because there are lots of shades of each color, it makes picking out ribbon a nightmare!

So the question is, what flowers come in mauve?
