I think cream would be lovely paired with the light pink and I adore pink and light grey.  You could also do a darker shade of pink to contrast with the bridesmaid dresses?  Love the color combo though.

@Mint2Bee:  how light it your pink dress? is it important for you for your flowers to pop or would you rather be subtle? i would add some greenery to the cream flowers to make sure they stand out from your dress, but then again i’m walking down the aisle with bright red flowers!

I would say cream flowers for both, add some dusty miller to your bouquet and maybe some pink blooms to the bridesmaids bouquets if you can find some that are close to the colour of your dress.

I think you should definitely do cream for yourself and possibly look into cream for your bridesmaids as well. If you do want to incorporate the pink into the bridesmaids’ bouquets, I would look at doing mostly cream with subtle pink accents in a light shade.

I completely agree with the PP…cream for both, with dusty miller in yours and some pink blooms for the BM bouquets…maybe some pink sweet pea?

@Mint2Bee:  I think white, cream, and pale blush would be stunning. August MIGHT be a little early for cafe au lait dahlias, but ask your florist what they think. Lamb’s ear or dusty miller would be beautiful greens to use in your bouquets. The second picture I attached has a dahlia (just picture the cafe au lait color) and it gives you an idea of how to incorporate pops of other colors without being overpowering.

Dahlias, garden roses, hydrangeas atop lamb's ear.

Centerpiece with dahlia, rose, dusty miller, lavender, & craspedia by The Little Branch floral. I want this exact arrangement :)

Hydrangeas, garden roses, & ranunculus.

This is my reception table insperation so far. Pink roses, cream/pink & salmon/yellow (you could substitute pale yellow if these are too bright) spray roses and light pink stock. I think  the flowers are soft and romantic.  I’m adding pops of color with the table runners so ignore the hot pink and orange but the chair covers will be light pink 🙂 I think you can play it up a little with color and still get the look you want instead of playing it too safe.
