    Its really hard to see what white flowers you are talking about from that picture.  I think that the roses if they are going to be that color then you should be fine.  I would make sure your florist knows that your dress is not white and even though the bouquet can have some white, you want to make sure there is a variety of shades of white / ivory.

    I think the colors of the bouquet will look gorgeous with your dress.  The cream colored roses are going to compliment the sash beautifully!

    Also, tulips typically open in warmer weather, as opposed to closing.  If you’re worried about them opening and eventually drooping (tulips need lots of water!), keep them in a vase in a fridge up until your wedding.  The water will keep them hydrated and the cool temperature will keep the tulips from opening for an hour or two.

    Tulips look way better closed!  When they open, the petals start to droop and those ugly black stems they have start to show.  So I wouldn’t worry about that aspect of it.  If you are worried that they will be too white, then ask you florist to use ivory rather than white. (Your dress is amazing, by the way…)
