If you’re gonna get them to use the white backdrop for your wedding then I don’t think that using all white flowers would really stand out. Why not use both the pink and white flowers together with a hint of grey in order for it to really stand out against the white backdrop? The choice is entirely up to you, but since I haven’t seen your church and what you’ll be using its hard to say. But since you said white is more traditional and it sounds like that maybe what you want, then do mostly white flowers with hints of the pink if that sounds better. Hope this helps  By the way congrats on your engagement! Good luck with the planning!

I am also having a traditional church wedding. My bridesmaids dresses are eggplant. They will be having ivory rose bouquets just like mine but smaller. I am putting ivory roses in the church. At the alter and down the pews.

Good luck & it will be beautiful!!

Our colors are the same as yours, grey dresses with pink flowers.  I am actually having our florist make church decorations out of just greens, like herbs and branches.  Eucalyptus, magnolia, etc.  Also some "grey" leaves, like dusty miller.  The entire inside of the church is white, so I figured white flowers would get lost, even though I did want something more classic and traditional.  And I don’t really want to cover everything in pink (it’s a small church).  I think they’ll add those hypericum berries, they come in a nice pink color that’s not too overwhelming.  GL w/ your choice!

For our church wedding, we are having pink altar flowers to match the rest of our color scheme. Our florist might throw in a few white flowers, too, depending on what is available. Use whichever color you want! I’m sure it will look just fine.

I had similiar colors and I chose to mix a blush pink flower with white flowers. We also decorated the candleholders on the altar with some ivy and white and blush pink flowers. I think it added some color but was not too much either.

We are having a traditional church ceremony but we will be using bright pink, green, and orange flowers. It brings some color to an otherwise traditional setting 🙂

I would use pink or a mixture or white and pink. You really want the alter arrangement to POP and bring everyone’s attention to the front so you and your Fiance are the center of attention.

I think adding pink to the arrangement would look nice.
