To first tell you a little bit about my wedding …. I am having a black tie very formal wedding in a cathedral this coming June. All of the flowers in my wedding are ivorys and creams.
When people ask the color of my wedding I usually just want to say candlelight 🙂
However my bridesmaid dresses are very similar color and style to the girls in this photo. Yet I do not know what color bouquet I should choose! So I did some rough photoshoping to give a visual.
Because I am not having a single purple flower or really anything else purple in the wedding I am wondering if having purple bouquets would look out of place.
Do the ivory roses look nicer? I think that is what I am leaning towards.
I really appreciate your opinions! 🙂

Personally I like the ivory.

@MissHobbit: Me too, I think they ‘pop’ more

Ivory. It’s a lovely contrast to the dresses and makes the photos pop!

I would like your bouquet to pop off your dress and theirs to pop off of theirs, so I’d put you in a purple bouquet and them in cream. I think it’s completely find for the bride to have purple even if no other flower is purple because you are supposed to stand out.

I like the ivory, the purple may or may not match/clash with the dresses, but ivory will definately give a lovely contrast and be in keeping with the rest of your flowers

I think the ivory will be lovely. I had all white flowers as well though, so I’m obviously biased

I like ivory for your maids and purple for you. It would really pop and play well of each other.

The ivory is nice, but I like the purple. But I can see if you’re not having any other purples in the wedding that you don’t want that to become colors.
If you like ivory, go for it! Both choices are great. I’m totally biased. I’m doing eggplant bm dresses with dark purple flowers for me and mixed light purple/ivory/blueish hydrangea for the bms. BUT – my color is eggplant/plum.
Make sure their flowers are really ivory and not white. Your purple is a little brighter than mine, but a photographer gave me the great tip of being careful with light flowers against dark dresses – they can blow out in photos and be hard to photograph well.
Here’s my look:

the purple is beautiful, but the ivory flowers pop more with the dresses.
