My colors were navy blue and silver.  I ended up going with blue irises (which look more purplish and lighter), white carnations, misty blue (looks like bluish baby’s breath) and dusty miller.  Honestly, even if you find a flower in the color you want, you can never guarantee that the flower will come in exactly the right shade.  You might be able to incorporate some blue-colored berries, which would actually be really appropriate for a winter wedding.

Here’s what my bouquets looked like:

My winter wedding colors are navy and yellow. I’m doing anemones for navy:

EDIT: Also, my florist suggested some sort of spray painting that they can do to make flowers any color you choose. She suggested it for flowers in large flower arrangements that will be at the church. I haven’t seen this before, so I have no idea…

I should add that it’s actually a good thing for the flowers to be a different color than the bridesmaids’ dresses.  They’ll show up better in pictures!  For the same reason, if the bride’s bouquet is all white, it won’t stand out against her dress, so you shouldn’t be afraid to use some color in yours either.  I know they make blue roses, but they painted to get that way, and IMO flowers look beautiful in their natural colors.

Against your ivory and silver, you should be safe with a medium blue, but not too light.  You could have your bouquets be mostly ivory with some silver and medium blue accents.  Here’s an example that’s kind of what I mean:

@Winter12: Just read your other post.  Clashing is a valid concern.  If you’re really afraid of clashing, then just pick a flower color that’s entirely different than the dresses.  Here’s one of my bridesmaids with her royal blue dress and blue iris bouquet.  They’re obviously not the same color, but I don’t think it really clashes…
