    Thank you so much for reading this. I am sick to my stomach! My Matron of Honor has chosen a dress and a color (ocean blue) that I am not sure what colors to put with it. I am at the point right now where I need to pick flowers and a cake but my wedding colors are not chosen yet. I was thinking of tropical flowers...maybe pink and orange? What color would you put with that dress color?? HELP??

      I have the same problem- my MOH's dress is like aqua (which of course I chose) but then i was thinking OMG what color flaower, etc. I just decided to go with a tropical mix (pinks, oranges, yellows) I figured that with the color of the sand and the ocean will look lovely! Good luck!

        I'm not quite sure what color ocean blue is, but pink or orange or lime green would all look fantastic!

          first of all, calm down and BREATHE. this is not something to get sick to your stomach over! can you post a pic of the dress? not sure if ocean blue is light or dark or on the aqua side? at any rate, all of us with beach weddings have "ocean" color in our pics, and i haven't seen anyone's flowers look bad against it! i think you are always safe with tropical colors, but if you are really worried, choose ivory/neutral color flowers for her and save the bright tropical ones for YOUR bouquet. that way, YOU get the big pop of color and can choose your favorites.

            Natural color flowere will go with anything and i assume your dress is a natural color so you never go wrong with natural colors

                  I love lime and blue together. You should go with green cymbidiums. Orange would look great too.

                    ok, seeing the dress, i second the green orchids! will look STUNNING.

                    sometimes when i see tons of great jewelry/flowers/other accessories out there in other colors i totally second-guess my choice. i almost wish i had gone with blues/greens. i've seen so much stuff available in those colors! (i went with deep red with orange ... everything out there is orange and fuschia!)

                      I agree on the green. i don't think orange would look that great, but a deep or darker pink would be just fine!

                      I have green cymbidiums in all of my stuff, so of course I say GREEN cymbidiums!
