    I see what you mean about the all white/ivory. But I don’t think a color bouquet will take away from the elegance at all. I think it will look pretty, not dated.

    The trick with neutral or monochromatic bouquets is to use the structure of both the flowers themselves and the arrangement of them to create depth and visual interest. A full bouquet of cream roses and a bouquet of cream calla lillies both look classic and elegant, but the calla lillies (IMO) have more visual interest because their shape and structure allows for more play of light and shadow.

    Basically, if you want to go monochromatic, then you need to make the most of the shapes and proportons in the bouquet. I’d find out what will be in season in your colours in September and see what options you have.

    What about a compromise between the two? Have a mostly cream coloured bouquet with purple dispured through it?
