New color added!

I've talked to Nick, Mom, and bridesmaids and we've decided to add another color to the palette, but only for the reception. So, without further ado (I love that word, I never really knew what it meant until I watched 'Much Ado About Nothing')
Ceremony: Red & white (just like before)
Reception: Red, white, and...orange!

That's right, orange. I was trying to find an Asiatic lily, or similar type, in true red, but was only finding burgundy and pink. I ran across this picture and really liked how the color popped.

I really love this picture, taken at Matangi Resort in Fiji. It has been the inspiration for the new color scheme:

Here is a collage that I made, hopefully it doesn't look like a bunch of totally random pictures, but makes sense regarding my scheme.

So now our flowers have slightly changed regarding the reception; the ceremony will be the same as before, colors and everything. So here I go again:

My bouquet-red & white long stemmed calla lilies wrapped w/ red & white ribbon & Nanna's pearls
MOH bouquet-red long stemmed calla lilies wrapped w/ white (or red) ribbon
BMs bouquets-white long stemmed calla lilies wrapped w/red ribbon
JBs bouquets-white short stemmed bouquets wrapped w/ red ribbon
Boutonnieres & corsages-white & red mini calla lilies, going to depend on what the guys wear as to which color of flower they wear

Cake-decorated with orange Asiatic lilies
Centerpieces-red & orange fruit & white (silk probably) mini calla lilies

Does any of that make sense? Be honest now, what do you think?
