Personally I love green and white, with just about every color.. I don’t think they clash at all.  But I do love your pink and purple bouquet too!  I think either one would be beauitful with the purple, or grey for that matter!

My bridesmaid dress search was agony too.  I wanted to find a dress that each girl liked, but I also wanted to find a dress that they would wear again.. keep in mind that of my three bridesmaids, NONE of them regularly wear dresses!  So there was a lot of back and forth.  I have one bridesmaid who is a little bigger than the other two, so I wanted to make sure she was comfortable in what she was wearing, well she didn’t like the one my sister had her heart set on.. it ended up in hurt feelings and all kinds of [email protected].  I’m glad it’s over!!!

They all have their dresses and are getting them altered!  Yay!

My dresses are black matte satin & my girls will have green hydrangea bouquets.  I’m doing a black and white and green wedding, so I love white and green!  But I love all colors, so I’m not really biased toward anything in particular πŸ™‚

I like the second flower pic you posted (with purple flowers in with the green and white).  I’m doing something very similar – my bridesmaids are also wearing purple.

I actually really like the purple dresses (even more than the gray). They are beautiful and I like all of the flowers with them. I think the purple ones look great and give it some depth with the different shades and varities of purple. The green and white also looks awesome. I attended a purple and green wedding a few years ago and it was beautiful. It is one of my favorite color combinations.

I love the purple dress, but I am biased because my FAV color is purple!  My Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses are purple and their bouquets will be purple and green.  Dont worry about the color combination it looks great.

The most important thing is that it is your wedding.  Making your bridesmaids happy is very sweet of you but they will wear a dress you pick for one day if you ask them too.  Remember that when they get married they may ask you to do the same thing.

I think green and white would be great! My bridesmaids had purple dresses, and they had bright green bouquets. My bouquet was green and purple, and all of them had peacock feathers. It worked nicely!

Well @hilsy85, my SIL had pewter grey dresses and they looked stunning. Her colors were metallics(gold, silver, yellow) with some purple. Just thought i’d tell ya! I’m partial to purple just because that was my color. πŸ™‚

We did purple dresses, with purple flowers, our colors were purple, grey and white.  The groomsmen wore grey tuxes with purple ties.

I PM’d you our wedding photo album website.  Here is a picture of my brother and SIL entering the hall – my husband and I are right behind them.
