Black Flowers

This week I happened to run across two weddings done by Alexandria area florist Helen Olivia in which she used black flowers. The most common black flower you will see is the black calla lily. It's actually a dark dark purple but because it's so dark it looks black. What are your thoughts? Do you like black flowers? Would you use them in your wedding?

Love Helen Olivia, Maryanne is a favorite of mine. I also love these flowers alongside aubergine and purples. Very cool.

These are exactly what I'm looking for to compliment my dark purple, golds and ivories palette. Love them!

I'm doing a black/red/white wedding, and all the flowers are calla lilies...I adore the combination! Very dramatic but simple and romantic.

I think the black calla lilies are beautiful, especially because our colors are pink,purple,and black.I think they will go beautifully with our decor.We are having a pretty punk rock theme with skull and crossbones and polka dots. now im looking for flowers to go good with these calla lilies. any ideas u can e-mail me at yoshi_shotzy@yahoo.com. any ideas would be very appreciated...
