    My god..this is one of my peeves! It kills me when I see a white-ish dress with white-ish flowers that aren’t the same shade!! This is the primary reason I am having a colorful bouquet. This kills me! I’m so OCD with things, and this is one of them. End rant. LOL

    @Mrs. Dragon:  I’m someone drawn to monochromatic color schemes.
    Which means I’ll probably have such a color scheme.

    So I say it looks fine. In the end its up to you, but if you like it what else matters?

    @WhatMaeBee:  Completely up to you but why not do a mix of both ivory and white….maybe something like this?

    I like the dimension it gives the bouquet and I think it would be a better option!

    This brides bouquet has both white and ivory and looks quite lovely

    I voted that it is completely up to you, because it is lol But I personally would not do it. Ivory is beautiful but when you put it beside white, it looks old and yellowy. So I think the flowers should match.

    Some of the pics PP’s posted look pretty nice though.

    @Mrs. Dragon:  I tend to like the ivory flowers on a white dress more when you mix white flowers in with them too. I think all ivory would leave your bouquet lacking definition. I am not opposed to ivory on white, I would just add a little something in with it. Maybe even babies breath if you don’t want something too overhwhelming.

    I kind of feel like everyone rwad over the part where the OP said “the only come in ivory or rainbow colors”… meaning they probably don’t come in white.

    Bottomline, it’s your wedding, and you’ll look lovely whatever you decide! That being said, I would recommend going w/ at least one small pop of color in your bouquet. I’m a girl who loveloveloves her whites/ivories and neutrals all around, but when my sister go married, she took my mom’s advice (over mine, hmph), and went with a poppy colored mix in her bouquet. I was totally against it, but it turned out soooo beautifully, especially in pictures.

    I like the way it looks! My dress is more toward ivory, and my flowers will be more towards white, so kind of the other way around. I am planning to incorporate a lot of greenery too, as I love the way that looks, and it breaks up the white/ivory thing too.

    @Mrs. Dragon:  I do not like it. In fact I am like the other bee above and a little OCD about it. However, it is your wedding so you can do what you want.

    I like the ivory and white mix, never thought of it before. It would help.
