I was going to suggest the hydrangeas too. But keep in mind you will want a color in the bouquets that isn’t the same as the dresses because they won’t show up in your photos

Maybe lamb’s ear?? that was my first thought when I saw your color.

I’m using ivory hydrangeas in my bouquets and arrangements. I also love garden roses.

I’m a sucker for an ivory rose.  I also like lisanthus and ranunculus (these are my flowers, which are typically budget friendly.)

For brown, I’ve seen lots of brides using the fiddle head fern.

Dusty miller and lamb’s ear would be beautiful accents.  Currently I’m obsessed with silver brunia which would also make a great accent to ivory flowers.  There is also a cool leaf called leucadendron that is in that same color range

one more of silver brunia (on right) it does look more “meadowy” in this picture but I think that might be a rarity.  I love it though- it’s like little suede buttons.

I was also thinking that a mix of whites and soft yellows would look really pretty too.  I don’t know if you’d like yellow, but it would definitely be a beautiful accent to the meadow color.

I also discovered another brown flower: chocolate cosmos: [attachment=634358,82638]

This arrangement with much more ivory and less green would be really pretty too.

Actually, the more I research, I’m realizing that the chocolate cosmos are kind of burgandy-ish, but maybe they come in a deeper, chocolate color as well?

The bouquet in my avatar is the inspiration for my own wedding. I LOVE blue, green and ivory together.

 

Or you could fo something like ivory roses with green berries:

or ivory roses, hydrangeas and green berries,

And this one is  a centerpiece, but a good inspiration:
