I always love yellow with purple, especially since they are already there in irises.  But I’m sure you can make it work with different shades of blues/purples, too.  I would check out Snippet & Ink and StyleMePretty to see if either of those blogs have mood boards with colors/ideas that would work for you. 

As for the style, I think that there are lots of things you can do to keep it a little informal.  You can do the flowers a little rustic, so they look like wild flowers.  Or you can do it kind of modern and pop-like, though I’m not sure how well that will work with your setting.  But etiher way, I think it helps to bring in a lot of color to make it more laid-back.  I really don’t think your dress will be an issue.  Again, I’d check out those blogs and you will probably get tons of ideas.  Good luck!

This is a really hard one!  I love the look of irises and think they’d be beautiful in an outdoor setting.  I’m not sure I like them together with the turquoise color, though.  I think if it’s not done right, it might clash.

If your heart is set on the deep purple of the irises, and you’re looking for a second accent color, how about green?  That would keep it very outdoorsy and springlike.

If you go on theknot.com, you can pick a flower type or color to see examples.  Maybe you can get some inspiration?

Those purple irises are beautiful! You could use them and baby’s breath for your bouquet and white irises for your bridesmaids’ bouquets, which will stand out nicely against those blue dresses. Another color scheme that would be gorgeous is white, a light olive green, and purple. The green would tie into the setting as well. Good luck!

How about deep orange and brown.  It would have that rustic outdoor feel and would look great with the natural outdoor shades of green and brown as well as your ivory dress.
