i love the idea of doing all shades of green! i’ve seen lots of pictures of that lately but can’t seem to find one now to post. 

i think it’s so beautiful and fresh for summer. and very elegant with touches of ivory.

good luck!

navy ivory and lilac very unusual and very in keeping with the grey yet some colour too

Since your men are in a neutral, you could put your girls in a rich neutral like chocolate brown or a silver grey, I know light pink colors wash me out horribly and I am pale with pink undertones, the right shade of green would be beautiful though, and then have hints of coral in with the other colors, I think a grey, green, ivory and coral palette could work very well if you do it right.

I second @BlueSatinBows with the different shades of green.  A moss or sage green would be perfect with those flowers and would be fresh enough for the summer months.  I am getting married in July as well (July 1!) and we’re using green… although a slightly brighter green.  We’re using DB’s clover.

 

PS… That bouquet is BEAUTIFUL!

I’ve seen green bridesmaids dresses that were really flattering. I think paired with the grey tuxes, they would look really nice.

My first thought was blush bridemaids dresses would look awesome.

If you really wanted to do coral I think it would look great.  My dress is also ivory and my bm dresses are coral.

I also think a muted green would look nice if you go that route.

@SarahM786: i love that color and the dress. J Crew has the most adorable (and generally affordable) bm dresses. i think that color with the hints of green would be fabulous!
