    Honestly, I think this comes down to how picky you are about things like that.  Also, there are so many different shades of white and ivory so depending on the shade of your dress it might not look that different from your flowers.  My dress is an off-white color, and I bought a white flower to add to a sash on my dress, and I don’t want to use it because it makes my dress look dingy compared to the bright white of the flower.  Is there anyway you can hold up the white flowers to your dress and see if you are okay with it or not?

    My florist told me that no white flower is true white. She said the are all mostly off-white and tend to look really good against ivory dresses. Hope that helps!

    I would have to agree that it just depends on how picky you are. My husband always wanted a white tux and I thought it would be no problem. Then, a couple days before the wedding, I realized that my dress was actually off white! I was so afraid that it would look completely off in the pictures but it really didn’t. You can’t really tell. I think especially since you have the green accents, it won’t make the color difference so obvious.

    That won’t be weird at all.

    No flowers are truly stark white the way a stark white wedding dress is.  All white flowers are either a soft whtie or even a cream.  You will be fine.  “White” bouquets are the most traditional bridal bouquet there is and many many brides wear off white and ivory gowns with them.

    What type of white flower is that?  What about using a hydrangea that is maybe green?  They have similar shape. 

    I am going through the same issue right now and just don’t think I can come to terms with using white mums with an ivory dress.

    i am having the same kind of issue. my mom was trying to talk me into doing baby’s breath for the flowers and bouquets but my dress is ivory looking (its really cafe satin with white lace overtop which LOOKS ivory when combined) and babys breath is white… like stark white.

    so im interested to see how the poll turns out.

    i have my heart set on creamy ivory and green hydrangeas
