    I like the idea of them carrying the white flowers. Since they have different colored dresses, it might be too much color if you give them mixed color flowers. I think it will look really classy, clean, and chic if you do the white. Just use your others in your pretty birdcages.

    I like the idea of them carrying the roses and fill the birdcages with the pastel sweet peas.  The roses will add some continuity to the overall look since they have different colored dresses.  And the different colored sweet peas will look pretty and cheerful in the birdcages.  Not to mention, its less work for you since you have the rose bouquet’s done and wouldn’t need to dye them for the birdcages!

    i agree with the pp that the white in the bm’s bouquets will give them some continuity. also the sweet peas in the centerpieces will carry your colors throughout the decor better than having the roses in them

    @yellowlace: Yup, I have to agree with this.

    You don’t want toooo much color and you’ll want something to pull it together.  The white roses and your gown will help pull together the female-side of things.  I’m guessing that the guys will also have white somewhere to help pull it together (I’d suggest the bouts).

    Different is good, but even in a garden, despite the plethora of blooming flowers, you still have green and brown (leaves and dirt/ground) to pull it all together.  

    Also, the variety of color on the table will help brighten up and add color to an otherwise monochromatic color scheme.  🙂
