I am trying to think of some pretty, relatively inexpensive flowers for my Bridesmaid or Best Man bouquets. What colors and types of flowers do you think go with their dress? The link can be followed here:
The color is clover.
The wedding colors are chocolate brown, clover green, and ivory. The gent’s tuxes are going to be black, and my dress is ivory, if that helps!
Thanks in advance! We are making our own bouquets, so we won’t be consulting with a florist about making them.

Do you want the bouquets to match your colors, or do you want them to pop?
Match/Complement: light pink, white/ivory, light yellow, pale green flowers. Soft Springtime colors. Stay away from Peonies as they tend to be expensive, even in season, but that type of soft, puffy flower might look good.
Pop: bright colors, fuschia, white, bright yellow.
I have always loved Daisies, and Cala Lillies come is all sorts of colors and are great, especially if you have your BMs carrying just one or a small bouquet of all the same flower.
The flowers were my favorite part of planning!

Thanks for the reply! I was thinking I would have some colors that “pop” in my bridal bouquet, but keep the Bridesmaid or Best Man bouquets relatively simple. Thanks for the tip about peonies – I love these flowers, but I heard they were expensive, even though they are in season at that time.
Actually, pale/light yellow might be a nice touch! I never considerd that before. Originally I wanted chocolate brown Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses, but I got these ones for too good of a deal to pass up. Light pink might look cute too!
Thank you for your suggestions.

I think with that color and style of dress, you can pretty much have anything you want. The green is such a natural color with the flowers, that the possibilities are endless.
