    My dress is ivory and my girls will have white calla lily bouquets so it is kinda opposite but I still think it will loog gorgeous. So, go for it!

    I’ve seen pics of the bride with a coloful bouquet while the BMs are just white, and I think it’s very pretty! I’m not sure you’d notice the difference between white and ivory flowers but I have never seen them side by side? And personally, I think just a purple and red bouquet would look amazing against the white bouquets

    @dynamic_duo: Personal thoughts only… my dress is also diamond white and I am planning to have white and light pink peonies. My maid of honor has a silver dress plus light pink peonies. I think for diamond white, it goes well with both white and creamy flowers.

    From what you said, I think too much colors are involved. If your mind is set on having purple and flowers with red accents, while your BMs will have lavender dresses, maybe just use white (like the white you have for your flowers) + purple ribbon to tie everything together.

    In this case you only have 3 colors : red, purple and white, which will be great, cohesive

    @dynamic_duo: Since we are using the same site. I am doing the candlelight because I think the snow white ones are going to be to white.  I just ordered 1 bouquet today to see if like or not.  And my dress is diamond white,  my bouquet I believe going with the navy blue/candlelight nosegray one on that site.  The bridesmaids are in navy blue dresses and plan on doing the candlelight 2 dozen roses.

    @dynamic_duo: How long did it take for you get your bouquet? I know the web site says should be here in 2 weeks.

    @dynamic_duo: Do you have a picture of your dress? Maybe we can have a look to see if it goes better with white or ivory.

    What is the proportion of the purple and white flowers?

    I think if you have just 1-2 purple, then I would say ivory. The white (from #4 post) is toooooooo white. It looks kinda horrible to me. BUT, if your are doing 50% of purple, then it can balance off the over-whiteness of the white flowers… in this case, white will be better because it makes a better contrast.
