I tried on this dress at JCrew yesterday, and really loved it. I’ll probably buy it (or one other that I also loved).
Question: what kind of flowers would look good with this dress? (If you zoom in you’ll see there are lovely little chiffon flowers on the bodice.) In terms of colors, I thought I wanted bright colored flowers – hot pinks and oranges, for example – but I’m not (ahem) married to the idea. What do you think?

I think pink Peonies go with everything.

Oo.. I like what JenBabe stated. Very light pink peonies would be BEAUTIFUL. I think you could do almost anything though. Talk to a florist and she will give you lots of ideas.

Talk to your florist and see what will be in season when your wedding comes around. I used bright flowers (pink, purple and yellow) for our wedding and loved how it looked!

I chose something a little different and I actually thing it might really work with your dress because of the way it flows.

I agree – pink would look beautiful – very soft, graceful and elegant, like the dress! maybe pink and yellow.

Definitely talk with the florist about what will be in season. I wanted pink peonies so bad…but not realistic in October 🙁
I think any fluffy (for the lack of better words) would really go well with it. Also, and I don’t know if this is a my screen thing…but it seems like the dress is more in the ivory range as opposed to the white white range…so I would probably stay in the realm of softer colors. But like I love the way orange mini callas look with ivory for example, but I don’t think that the birds of paradise orange would look as good.
Just my opinion. I love the orchid pic above – super pretty!

I love peonies. They are yummy. You could go the “soft” colors route, pale pinks and white peonies, very simple and elegant. Or you could go for bold colors, really jewel toned pinks and purples with funky berries or whatnot thrown in – just depends on what time of year you’re getting married.

I second pink Peonies. The dress is beautiful ! I think soft pink will go best with this dress.

also look at garden roses (google image david austin roses to see the look) or sweet peas – both have that same ruffly super feminine look as rannunculas and peonies
peonies are really only readily available for a month or two in spring so they’re not an option for every wedding unfortunately!
i’d personally do a big bunch of pale peach garden roses with that dress but i think any pale / sherbet feminine, ruffly flowers would be beautiful. i think it would also look really pretty to mix in some berries or wispy branches or feathers
here are some pics of what i’d envision (your dress is beautiful btw)

I actually think that a less fluffy bouquet would set it off well– it’d give you some contrast. 🙂

I like to think about the feeling or theme or style of the wedding, in regards to wedding colors and wedding flowers. But with that said, for a July wedding -you could really do anything you like. Of course, you could go with the softer colors, with a floaty garden theme, but I also think that the dress you picked could be used as a destination island type wedding with bright tropical flowers-if you wanted to go in that direction. I say-you are the bride-do what you love!
