I have no idea what color I’d like the bouquet to be. I know that the bouquet should contrast with the colors and not match, as it will be blah. Our colors are truffle/chocolate and champagne with a tiffany blue accent color. Any feedback is welcome. Thanks!

I’ve never heard of the bouquet having to contrast with the colors. I suggest you look at lots of wedding pictures online and see what you like. Here are pictures of my wedding: http://singhiphotos.shutterfly.com/wedding/458
This is a very personal decision — look around at what others have done and then come up with your own thing! Good luck.

My bouquet didn’t have contrasting colors to my wedding colors. It incorporated all of my wedding colors and then I added some white to complement all the color. My wedding colors were pink and a dark silver with green as a smaller accent color. So my flowers were various shades of pink with whites and greens mixed in and then my bouquet was wrapped in silver ribbon. There’s no rule that says your bouquet colors have to contrast your wedding colors. Pick what you think looks best. Try switching your palette and use the tiffany blue as your focal color and use your truffe and champagne colors as more of your accent colors?

You could do a deep purple like an eggplant, or you could to a pop of white.

I think you can really do anything you like. I agree with looking at lots of photos.
Have you checked out the Gallery? (http://gallery.weddingbee.com/) it has loads of awesome photos for inspiration.
I agree that with a dark color dress is looks great when the bouquets stands out by having a bright color. But with a neutral like brown, you can go with almost anything- red, pinks, greens, yellow, orange, blue.
My Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses were chocolate brown as well- we went with oranges and reds for our fall wedding and I did my bouquet to match.
