These are my bridesmaid dresses:
My dress is the Mori Lee 4969 (http://ww.w.morilee.com/images/Picture/4969/bg_ML_4969-018.jpg)
Right now I’m trying to figure out colors for the bridal party flowers.
Here are some ideas I had:
Light pink, lavender, and white
Pink and white:
What do you guys think will look best?

@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!

@village_skeptic: The dresses are a pretty bold green. I had definitely thought about doing white and green bouquets, I’ve just been changing my mind a lot lately. I do like the idea of bolder colors for the flowers.
This is the photo that made me think light pink for the flowers:
Do you guys think something like these would works? Pink and orange or pink and purple:

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..?

@jessicaandjames5914: I plan to DIY my flowers too! I was thinking either using BloomsByTheBox.com or freshroses.com. I’m going for a more classic/traditional style wedding.

@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!

@peabee: That sounds really nice! I am using BloomsByTheBox because my cousin used them for her wedding and the flowers came out gorgeous!!

One more thing, the centerpieces are being provided by my venue:
They’re all white flowers with green foliage. They’re also being incorporated in ceremony decor (probably not the ones down the aisle, just the three up by where we’re getting married):
Knowing this, would colored flowers look out of place?
