@tails:  They are lovely. I would go for them. I don’t think there is a ‘too much’ with weddings.

You could upload the pictures and add a poll to see what other bees think.

Do any of these choices fit your scheme?




As far as silver/grey, they really didn’t have anything, but I wouldn’t use flowers for this. I might use silver jewelry (brooches, rhinestones, etc.) or non-flower items painted silver.  You could do glitter or shimmer on top to make them sparkle, or a coating of sugar crystals on top for sparkle?.

As for the white making your dress look yellow, yes, some flowers are not pure white and do tend to have either a creamy or or green tinge to them.  Some flowers, though, are REALLY white, particularly some ‘exotic’ or ‘tropical’ flowers.  Start here and notice the difference between them:


Lilies, orchids, tuberoses, carnations, bouvardia, pure white hydrangeas, Sweet William, Casablanca lilies, and Stephanotis in particular (off the top of my head) are VERY white blossoms that would likely be just fine with your Diamond White dress. The Stephanotis, for instance, has super-white blossoms with no green or cream in them (at least, the ones I’ve seen).
