Seeing as how flowers are products of nature, there’s going to be variation in shades of “white” no matter what. Any “white” flower is, in reality, whitish at best, and I think that worrying about them clashing with an ivory dress is one worry you can definitely let go of. White flowers for a bride wearing a gown in any shade in the white range is fine.

how ivory is your dress?  I know when shopping some of the ivory dresses looked really white to me (since I wanted a creamier ivory).  If it is an ivory that looks white, then i dont think it would be a problem at all.  however if it is closer to champagne than white, it might look odd.  This was really difficult to articulate… haha

Actually, my flowers (white sweet peas) ended up being a little more off-white than my dress. I think it’s unusual for flowers to be BRIGHT WHITE like a white wedding dress would be.

My dress was ivory and my bouquet had white and green roses (among other flowers).

Okay, I finally got it a decent size. Although not my most flattering photo, this is the one that shows the contrast best. As PPs have said, no flowers are really “bright white” anyway, so mine went pretty well with my dress.
