I had 3 colors (plum, burgundy and gold). The BMs wore plum dresses. I ordered white roses from Sams club (they were actually more ivory–beautiful!) and did my own flowers. Point being you can use ivory flowers if you want, you could do a different style bouquet/bout for each person, or you could choose 2-3 of your colors and have those color flowers. They don’t have to be all one color, but they also don’t have to be super multi-colored. Look onine or talk to a florist about what flowers are in season (therefore cheaper) and decide which style of flower and color you like. There’s no wrong answer unless you hate it 🙂

I will say that I loved our bouquets/bouts. Plain and simple. I added some Caspia (purple filler) to my bouquet to give it a touch of color.

I love the look of an all white bouquet for the bride. Your BMs can have peach flowers with some fresh greenery or succulents to bring the color scheme together.

Something like this:

@MrsBrown13:  I ordered 200 White Roses and had them delivered Thursday for our Sunday wedding. They were gorgeous, but it’s a lot of work. They come in bundled up tight. You’ve got to let them sit for a couple of hours, then dethorn and cut the stems, then let them sit, etc. When first unwrapped they are so dehydrated and tight it’s scary. But over time they take in the water, open up and are beautiful. The bundles were sets of 25 (I believe). I had 6 bundles of 1 type of white rose, and 2 bundles of a different variety. The 2 different ones were a little off in color (a little more yellow than cream) but it wasn’t very noticeable. Probably only I knew.

They took longer to open up than I expected, and I would have ordered them for Wed delivery had I know. they still looked amazing a week later when I returned from my honeymoon. As far as ordering for a destination wedding, I’m not sure about that. I had a full set up of multiple 5 gallon buckets, a work table with scissors, gloves, trash can, etc. If you can put the time and effort into them then I highly recommend ordering them. I mean 200 roses for $150? You can’t beat that!! But if you don’t have the time or resources, I’d go with a florist who can assure you everythign will be handled and ready for you. It was a little stressful but worth the savings for me. 🙂

I would see what kind of flowers are available in season around your date – I’ve heard stories about girls getting their hearts set on a particular flower only to find out they’re impossible to get on their wedding date! Luckily there are lots of varieties available in ivory and white. Good luck! Smile

OP love the idea pp mentioned!

Or you could do mostly ivory bouquets with small amounts of peach, pink color to give it a little pop like these BMs have below

Why not mix it? White pink and peach with little bit of green in it.
