    My sister did something very similar, we all had white bouquets and she carried a pink one. This was the only pic I could find of us holding the flowers (wedding wa slike 6 years ago so not many on facebook to grab). anyhow, hope it helps you visualize. I love the idea of having the BMs carring white and the bride carrying a color! (my BMs are carrying white and i’m doing a brooch bouquet)

    I vote red for you and the groom and white for the bridal party. I love the contrast!

    Substitute red for orange, and that’s what we did. Girls were in grey dresses, girls all had orange shoes (guys had orange/black/grey argyle socks)- I LOVE a colored bride’s bouquet!! DH had an orange bout, the guys had white.

    Out of all these options I like #1 the best. And just for reference, I am going to attach a picture of how my roses looked next to my dress. To be honest, you can clearly see a color difference, it’s just a matter of whether or not that is bothersome. My dress was ivory.

    ETA: Pic is down below. I didn’t like the one I originally attached.

     I have my picture, I had red and the groom did too then the wedding party with white. It isn’t super great of the flowers but shows it sort of.

    I think you’re on the right track with red for you and the groom, white for all attendants.  The photos submitted here all look great, and I love the way colored bouquets “pop” against a bridal gown.  You might also consider red shoes!

    I’m more traditional so I like the white for the bride and groom, but I think you can add some color to your bouqet definitely. If you like red, I would add a bit a red here and there, I am going to do the same thing with blue for me. 

    Oh my gosh and I just realized, are you getting married at the Manor in West Orange, NJ?? I am getting married there on June 28 coming up and I have the same color bridesmaid dresses! How crazy is that?

    I seriously need to get the flowers done this month, I finally picked the color for my bridesmaids (peacock) but now I have to pick flowers and centerpieces and everything else! I can’t believe it’s 2013 already.
