Inspired by the beautiful Green cymbidium orchids, cranberry and chartreuse is an unexpected color combination. I picture cranberry bridesmaids gowns, lots of cymbidium orchids, and deep red roses. This isn’t quite an inspiration board, because most of the things I found were just floral arrangements. However, it’s definitely a great visual for inspiring this color scheme, first inspired by nature.

And for the crafty bride, here’s a great tutorial on making your own cymbidium orchid bouquet:
I’m always thinking of new ways to use green. I love that I get a raised eyebrow when I mention cranberry and chartreuse as wedding colors, but that people love it when they see it. So I love that it’s unexpected, but works so well together. I love these colors, but I probably wouldn’t use them for my own wedding. My boyfriend isn’t a fan of reds and pinks and there are so many other combos I’d rather use anyway! I still swoon when I see that bouquet I featured though!
