    I vote for white shawls if you really want the green bouquets to pop. I don’t agree that only the bride should have any white on her — my bridesmaids will have white flowers and shoes. But just make sure that the shawls are the same color as your dress — if your dress is ivory, their shawls will make your dress look dingy!

    Personally, I think a lime green shawl would be too much. I was thinking white as well, but maybe you could do a black, brown or grey? Do you have a tertiary colour you are using?

    I think white would look great and wouldn’t detract from you at all.

    I agree that lime green shawls might be a little too much and detract from the bouquets. Do you have any subtler accent colours? Otherwise, I think the white shawls could work!!

    I vote white as well. No one is going to get confused if someone other than you wears white. All the focus will still be on you!

    I agree with the ‘too much lime green’ I think white will look fantastic with that dress and those bouquets.

    I would recommend silver shawls with those colors. I think they would look beautiful!

    ETA:  You know, just looking at the layout that you posted on this thread, I think you could even consider a light periwinkle, which actually would be a tint of the lapis.

    I think the whole “brides should only wear white to a wedding” is not a worry ESPECIALLY if its the Bride who picks the bridesmaids shawl to be white. I vote with white, and cant wait to see the end pictures!
