My dress is “antique white” .. which is softer than stark and not as dark as ivory. My sisters (MOH) dress is a blue, which is similar to the blue in this picture I attached. The other people in the wedding are – his best man: tuxedo + white shirt that matches my dress, flower girl: tulle and silk bodice in same shade white as my dress and a sash that matched the blue in Maid/Matron of Honor dress, and ring boy who has knickers and shirt in same color as my dress and a blazer that is the same blue as the moh dress and sash.
Ok … now. Our aisle runner has a dark blue band on both sides … its soft white and has an emblem that has gold, silver, red and blue in it. Our ceremony flowers are all white. The reception has all white flowers too.
Sooooo for my bouquet and moh bouquet … what would you do? Fiance does not want a bout … so we’re not doing them. I’m not in love with red … it just looks really good in the emblem … my favorite color is PINK but obviously I lost that battle. =)
What would you do? Thank you. [attachment=316749,38921]

Could you do whites/ivories accented with yellow? That would pop nicely against the blue!

I agree, yellow would look nice or a bright orange! Orange is so in right now, too.

i think yellow would be a fantastic pop! how do you feel about irises? that would be a nice way to tie together the blue and yellow?

I love yellow and blue together. For your bouquet it could be more white, with some yellow, and for your Maid/Matron of Honor it could be all yellow.

How about a combination of all the different colours and shades used in your wedding? Or doing an ivory/white bouquet with blue ribbons or other details added to co-ordinate?

I agree! Yellow and white would be fabulous!

I really love bridal bouquets that are simple cream and green. Hydrangeas, garden roses, with lots of leaves. You can incorporate the dark blue of your Bridesmaid or Best Man dress (and your “something blue” by using blue rubbon to tie your stems.

What about something in this color family, with reddish accents? I think these might be Circus roses. You could play Britney Spears “Circus” as your processional.

If your favorite color is pink, why not work that into your wedding by way of your bouquet? Pale pinks are beautiful against dark blue, and it’ll look lovely with your ivory dress, too.
I do think yellow or orange would be beautiful, too!

lime green looks great with dark blue… what about a mixture of whites, creams and lime green?

I like Jennarationnext’s idea of using some pink in your bouquets. It’s not like you FH is going to hold the bouquets, you are lol.
I’m voting for pink and/or yellow. I think the red will seem a little patriotic..
