    Hello Ladies,
    When it comes to flowers I don't have an eye. I am attaching a picture of my dress but have no idea what type of bouquet would look good with the dress. Keep in mind the dress is gold with the champange overlay. Any ideas girls.

        Your dress is gorgeous!! Unfortunately I'm terrible with flowers also! Hopefully someone will give you some great recommendations. Sorry I'm not much help!

          I like the flowers beside the model in the picture for your dress. They look like light colored roses and hydrangeas maybe (not sure you can get those in the DR?). As Meagan said, I think something soft like Calla lillies would be gorgeous. Your dress is so elegant and classy - you need a flower that's timeless like the dress.

            I agree with JCrosby I like the flowers that are in the picture. Some soft calla lillies would always work. White callas are my absolute favourite. Here are a few pics I found for you that might work.

            Calla Lillies

            Callas again (mine!)

            Callas again but I think these are a little too "perfect" and not random enough for your look.

            I would add a ton more that I like but I don't have time to upload all the photos...I'm sure others will come up with other ideas if you don't like these!


            Gorgeous dress btw!

              +1 for the arrangement in the background. Beautiful dress too by the way.

              Love the large head, garden style roses with the Hydrangea - but, may be tough to come by. If you go with callas, I LOVE mini callas. They are also available in a purple/magenta color.

              Also, an excellent finishing touch with your bouquet would be to finish off the ribbon wrap with a broach or some sort of antique jewelry. It would tie in so well with your dress.

                First of all, I must say, your dress is INCREDIBLE!! I think you should consider the calla lilies others have mentioned. Another idea is cream colored roses, or since one of your colors is yellow, I think some pale yellow roses would look lovely as well. Good luck!! Again, I love your dress!

                  Your dress is beautiful!!! I agree with the calla lillies, and some light yellow.. what about throwing in some really soft pink peonies? It would add a splash of color and would really help to bring out the gold in your dress.

                    I don't know how easy they are to come by (or if they fit in your budget), but what about orchids, or using orchids with some other flowers? Here are a few examples:
