Honestly, I think that you can do whatever colors you want, and that it would actually look best with a mix of brightly colored flowers.

I think you should have a pop of bright colors for their bouquets because too much of brown is drab and boring.

I dont’ agree with the lady at the bridal boutique. I think that the pop of colors will look good with your color scheme. I’m not sure why she thinks otherwise….

Another thing you have to remember is that just because you think she is a professional, doesn’t mean that what she says should be law because her opinions are based on what she thinks looks good or what she has seen for the time she has been working in the industry. I believe your best bet, would be to ask a florist. I had to do that because I was stuck in a major way with what color flowers went with my color scheme (aruba and espresso) and I didn’t want just ivory or white flowers. I found a florist (who was willing to help even though I didn’t use their company) and it was SO much easier after that. Good Luck!

I love the pink and orange in the picture you attached.  The bright flowers would look really great with the brown dresses.

You could totally do the bright colors with the brown dresses.  Chartreuse looks GREAT with dark brown.  Hot Pink and Orange look fantastic together and with brown.  You don’t have to do ivory if you don’t want to!

My BMs will also be wearing brown (sans ivory sashes). I am using pink gerbera daisies, Kermit mums (button) and cream roses in their bouquets. I may have both light pink and fuschia gerbs in the mix, depending on how the trial goes. You can see pics of the flowers I am using in my blog http://www.mint2betogether.blogstpot.com if you want to. Good luck!

I think orange and hot pick look fabulous with the brown.

My gals wore brown and all of their bouquets were white/green parrot tulips and ivory roses and let me tell you in all the pictures they popped so nicely against the dark colors and the pictures looked great. I have seen many BRIGHT colors with the brown and you really can’t go wrong. Good Luck!

I think if you want it more fun and vivid then you should definetly go with the BRIGHT colors. I have seen somewhere Bridesmaids with green/white bouquets wearing espresso colored dresses. It looked very elegant. I think it really depends on what kind of style you want.

My girls are also wearing brown, and while I’m not doing ‘brights’ how you are, this is the look I’m going for:

 I totally think you could do something similar with brights & it will look fine!

I like the idea of bright colors. But I think I would go with a solid bright color. Maybe shades or pink or orange.

I think it may look a little "busy" if you have the dress with a different color sash and then a whole bunch of different colors in the bouquets.

Another option is you can have either pink or orange mixed in with cream coloured flowers to tie in the color of the sash.

I have very similar dresses in black (cocktail length) with an ivory sash. I am doing ivory flowers with a few little tiny royal blue ones tucked in (wedding colours are black, royal blue and silver).
