icytrout :  Fuchsia flowers would work really well with the dark green dresses:

Every color flower works with green. All of them come with green stems and leaves.

Greenery works great for your colour. But you call it an accent colour – what else do you have? I like a lighter colour that will pop against the green, so a white/ivory/very light blush would be my choice.

I have picked the same colour for my bridesmaids. I have decided to go with emerald navy colour scheme with Australian natives. I will be using more greenery with larger flowers. This has cut down the costs.  – https://www.pinterest.com.au/pin/194288171408170119/

icytrout :  Literally any color will work. For a spring wedding, I’d probably go with a pink. Could be any shade, from pale blush through vibrant fucsia. Yellow would also work if you prefer it but I like the contrast of pink.

Dark green and burgundy, jewel tones! Though may not be super spring-like. You could do white/cream flowers and a few burgundy accents like a small bloom or berry.

My bridesmaids wore green, albeit a lighter shade than what you’re considering. I ended up going with primarily white flowers, with pops of pink and lots of silver accents. However, as others have noted, green matches with almost anything. If you view it as an earthy extention of the greenery in your floral arrangments it almost functions as a neutral where wedding palettes are concerned.

I would do light colours, ivory/blush to contrast the bright colour.

Dark green was one of our colors. Flowers were mostly shades of purple. (Lavender was another of our colors.)

Reds, pinks and purples will all make green pop. Look at a color wheel and see what’s across from your exact color if you want maximum pop. We did peachy/coral and ivory with greenery accents and I loved them.

My bridesmaids are wearing that same exact color. Our bouquets will be mostly white, with some silver brunia and wrapped with silver ribbon. Our colors are dark green, silver, and ice blue. January wedding
