For the lime green, I like lime green orchids punctuated by green spider chrysanthemums.  Add some white and voila!

Your color combination sounds gorgeous!  Here’s a really cool bouquet idea I found on Brides.com.  The lime green tropical flowers are anthuriums, and the white flowers with black centers are anemones.

Keep in mind you don’t have to stick to white/green/black flowers!  I like the idea of mixing in at least one other color. I love this color combo with your colors:

If you do want to stick to just your colors, I like the combination of white gerber daisies with a black center and green spider mums … like this, but with a LOT more flowers in the bouquet:

Awesome colors!! You could also just do white and green florals (some great suggestions above! I would also suggest big poufy white and/or green hydrangeas), with some nice black glass vases. LOVE those.

@Mrs.RDV: in the photo you mentioned above, the green berries are hypericum or st. johns wort with a couple pieces of beargrass, 3 green spider mums and some white gerbera daisies w/black centers. Super easy and inexpensive to recreate 🙂

@Mrs.RDV: Yay! I used orange gerbera daisies, green spider mums, bells of Ireland (they’re also green) and white cremon flowers (like football mums) for my wedding. We DIY’d the flowers – here’s a pic of an accent arrangement we made (without bells of Ireland). Maybe you can picture the white daisies instead of orange (and skip the starfish :). And @sfchick is right – these are all inexpensive flowers!
