So, I’ve decided on Mon Cheri’s Hillary for my wedding gown, and I have been really unsure of what colors of flowers will be in my bridal bouquet. A photo of the dress for reference:
And my bridesmaids will probably be in gray (or in ivory, if I decide to be whacky ;)).
Looking for some ideas from fellow brides that will be wearing blush, and photos from blush wearing brides who have already walked down the aisle!

I think a succulent bouquet would go great with that dress, but I don’t know the tone of your wedding. Whena dn where are you having it? What’s the dress code for guests? What type of meal is it? Is it overal casual, or formal?

@Asia: I agree, a succelent bouquet probably would look nice with my dress, but I don’t think I’d be into that much green.
We’re getting married at my Lutheran church and then our reception will be at a county park building (not a shelter; it’s a 2 story building with A/C, a deck, etc.) in the middle of a prairie. The reception hall has medium to dark wood along the walls (but it’s not wood paneling…haha).
Our plan at the moment is to have catered BBQ for dinner, but that’s just because we want food that will taste good, and it seems that traditional wedding food (AKA banquet food) seems to hit the table lukewarm at best much of the time.
We’re going for a sort of middle of the road when it comes to casual vs. formal, but with the reception hall and food it’s definitely leaning more toward the casual end of the spectrum. We won’t be specifying a dress code on the invite; around here, most women show up to weddings in nice (but not super fancy) dresses, and men in dress pants, a dress shirt and tie, and sometimes a sport coat. For table decor, I’m leaning toward square vases with blush roses, plus possibly some lace embellishments. Our colors so far are: blush, ivory, gray.

@DomesticDiva: …honestly? I just went with a bouquet I liked that semi-matches or orange/silver/touch of hot pink colors :-p I don’t think mine matches my dress at all!
I say find one you really love first for inspiration (in any color), then see if the florist can tailor elements of it to match your dress 🙂

@badabing88: Your bouquet sounds awesome!
Yeah, that’s probably what I’ll end up doing. Except I’m hoping to make my own bouquet, so I’ll just have to troll the internet for a while to see what looks good.
I pinned this bouquet a while ago, but I think the coloring might be too similar to my dress.

@DomesticDiva: Just get what YOU want 🙂 If you see it and think “oooooo, that’s so pretty!”, then go for it 🙂
See? The one I’m getting made doesnt match much at all…and it’s (gasp!) “fake” flowers 😉
These sites have some cool concepts you might check out for inspiration:

The top of my dress is ivory while the skirt is blush. I think I’m doing a mix of pink peonies, ivory and pink roses, white anemones, and some greenery. Similar to this:

@DomesticDiva: I carried a white and pink peony bouquet.

For me if I was wearing a blush gown, I would love to have a beautiful vibrant pink sweet pea bouquet. If I decide to go all out, I’ll throw in peonies, roses, and some other pink goodies. 🙂

I’ve always loved pink 🙂 My girls wore salmon/guava colored dresses. So my bouquet had pink gerberas and redish/salmon gerberas and white roses.
