    @peabee:  I think light pink and white would look just lovely 🙂 since your dresses are green, I wouldn’t go for more than 2 colours. The pink and white look really nice.

    Those dresses are showing up as a pretty bold green on my monitor. If they’re really that bright and bold in person, I think you’re going to want to match the intensity of that with your flowers. So less the pastel route, and more flowers that are really bright and saturated with color. Like maybe instead of lavender roses, purple lisianthus? And maybe instead of a baby pink flower, something in a hot pink or a magenta? Or you could choose to work with the greens and have white flowers of lots of different textures (or all the same, like white roses), but with pops of green, like green hypericum berries.

    Hope this is helpful! Maybe it’s just my monitor being weird and the green is much softer. But generally speaking when I’m looking for contrasting colors, I like to stay in the same “brightness” palette, and I’m not sure the pinks and lavenders will do that for you.

    @peabee:  I think with the dresses being so bright you should either go white or brighter flower colours as I don’t think the pastel colours really go!

    You really can’t go wrong with pastel or bright and punchy. My opinion : Go with peach, cream, light pink, white, maybe some yellow, and purple & light green. There are gorgeous flowers that you could pick. I am DIYing my flowers from BloomsByTheBox.com 🙂 What kind of wedding are you going for, like a rustic, vintage, classic..?

    @peabee:  The photo with the pink flowers you posted looks nice. I would say (IMO) it’s because it’s got those little punches of the really bright pink in with the softer pink. The pinks are complimentary, but then the bright pink and the bright green are connecting too.

    I’m not a huge fan of orange and green together because it reminds me of Gatorade, but that is a beautiful bouquet. I really like the pink and purple one you posted!
