Silk flower bouquets, HELP!?

I am doing my own flower bouquet arrangements with silk flowers for my wedding. I have white and different color lilac silk flowers. Our colors are lilac and silver. I have an example I would like for the girls:

I would like mine to look more like this:


My question is should I have more lilac color in mine and the girls have more white in there bouquets? For us having lilac and silver should I also go with different color lilac, plum and purples in the bouquets or just use lilac?

Thanks in advance.

Reply:It doesnt matter who has more color.. just make sure yours is a little bit different than the rest. (Mine was just Bigger than the others, and had more detail!!)
Reply:I find that having an assortment of colors in a bouquet gives it character and is more natural. Flowers in nature aren't always uniform in color.

The bouquet I like best for the bride is the one with the most purple in it. I assume the bridesmaids are wearing lilac dresses, so the bouquet with the most white would look best for them. It's a nice contrast
Reply:My friend had her wedding with the same colors, they used silk flowers as well. They had white, the lilac purple and a darker purple for the flower colors, and the main color of the wedding was the lilac purple. I think if the girls are wearing purple you should have a little more white in their flowers, and more purple in yours since I am assuming you are wearing a white dress, this will help compliment the dresses rather than the flowers seeming like they are blending in to them too much. It's also always a nice touch to through a different shade of your main color in the flowers just to make the flowers "pop" a little more.
Reply:what i'm doing is im having a cascading bouquet with red and white roses...

the girls will be having a white bouquet with one red rose in the middle..

hope this helps! :) it all depends on how your comfortable doing it but this is just how I did mine.
