Consider a combination of exotic flowers mixed with theclassics (roses, orchids, calla lillies) to add a modern feel to your wedding décor."Tight bunches of hot pink carnations in square containers, coupled with orchidsin another holder can look great, even with mini English roses in anothercontainer. Its all about balance," said Rafanelli.
