    I need your help!

    I just bought my dress! Yipppie! It is Maggie Sottero - Rhianna Royale in Light Champagne/Gold accent (if you go to Maggie's website and search 'Rhianna' you will find it).

    So my problem is this - what flower colors would go with this dress? No brides maids so I don't have to worry about matching their dresses. Would any flower color work?

    Has anyone gotten married in this dress (or dress color)? If so, can you tell me what flower colors you used?

      I think you can really go with any color, but I was reading through a wedding magazine (I think it was In Style) and saw white peonies and the bottom where you hold the bouquet was champagne & white ribbon with crystal/rhinestone like accents. It was gorgeous-so elegant!
      Also, I saw one with a very light/pale pink roses that was really pretty.

        Yes, I think white would be elegant also - or possibly cream, and I love the idea of details lying in the wrap for the bouquet.
        If you're looking for drama, you could go with a dark color. What type of look are you going for?

          I was leaning towards red roses (as the dress has roses on it) with yellow calla lilies and dark blue/purple iris accents. I was told by my photographer that orange photographs well with the bright lighting in the Dominican Rep - I am thinking to maybe orange roses....

          I think a mainly white or cream bouquet might be too bland for photos...

            ummmm I think you can be very bold i love the purple idea even the bright green chrysanths.I would spend some time looking at some photos but by no way are you limited at all.I would be looking to be outrageous, as you really have no limitations.
            I love your dress too

              I think the orange would look pretty, plus it would really pop against your dress. I love orange for destination weddings- it's so bright and tropical looking.

                Okay, wasn't sure what direction you were going.
                I think an orange with the yellow and blue/purple accents would be phenomenal! Such an eye-catching combination.

                  I think orange would be beautiful. I'm doing the orange flame callas, as well as champagne colored callas. And my dress is a deep champagne color.

                      @Desi479 - no way! Same dress even color wise? COOL! I will send you my email address as I would love to see your dress/wedding pics.

                      Good point about the white flowers against a light gold dress.
