    In My Humble Opinion you shouldn’t pick your wedding dress color as a courtesy to your flower girls!  Pick what you like and then ask them to purchase an ivory dress (or brown dress) or you could offer to pay for their dresses (usually Flower Girl dresses are not too expensive).

    I went through the same predicament. I’ve always LOVED ivory wedding dresses, so that’s what I chose. I bought my dress early in the planning.

    Then I settled on a black and white damask theme….oops! My dress looked fine with the decor, but the black/white damask flowergirl dresses didn’t look right with my dress. After much heartbreak, I returned them and purchased ivory Flower Girl dresses. Having them match me in pictures looked better than matching the decor (thus clashing with my dress, which would’ve been MUCH more noticeable).

    You should definately not think about getting a white dress if you really want an ivory one.  My Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses are a chocolate brown and my dress that I just bought is ivory.  I was debating on the Flower Girl dress colors, between brown, orange or ivory.  But have narrowed it down to ivory or orange, because the tuxes are going to be Chocolate brown as well.  Right now is a perfect time to be looking for Flower Girl dresses in ivory with Easter now over and those dresses on sale.  I think you should go for the ivory and tell them that is what you are wanting.  It is YOUR wedding and they should go along with what YOU want them to wear!!!  Good Luck!

    My dress is a color called "natural" so it’s not really white and not really ivory.  So unless our Flower Girl buys a silk dress to match mine, it’s going to make one of the dresses look dingy.  One of our accent colors is pale pink, and little girls like pink!  Haha.  So we are going to have her wear pink.  Our Flower Girl is FI’s niece and Future Mother-In-Law can NOT wrap her head around a pink Flower Girl dress – she keeps talking about a white one.  I hope to God she doesn’t just buy one (she would do that, thinking she’s being helpful).
