    I am wondering what color flowers to use. My dress is ivory, my MOH is red and bridesmaids are plum. I am not sure what would look good against their dresses and incorporate all of the colors.

    I think i am going to use plain white calla lilies for my bouquet but instead of a white i'd use a colored ribbon that would match the MOH and bridesmaid flowers.

    Any suggestions?

      Red and plum colors are really beautiful and tropical, and the color contrast with your ivory dress and white flower bouquet will be so exciting. I like all the multi-colored bouquets, but not so excited about the all-red one (#4). Have fun choosing!

          My bridesmaids are wearing the dress that your maid of honor is wearing and in red also. Their flowers are ivory, latte, and brown. I think those colors would also look like nice with yours!

                  I 'm a fan of the white as well. My bridesmaids tried on the dress that your maid of honor is wearing ( also in red) but we went with a very similar one ( bill Levkoff 587 ) because I don't live near a DAvids Bridal and it was a hassle for shipping.   I love the red and purple together though, I never would have thought, those were the two colors I was debating over and then went with red. My sister in law is getting married two months after us and she chose purple, If she didn't, I would have done the red/ purple now that I have seen them together! Let us know what you decide!!

                    I think the white  one is the best choice .

                      Since we have not finalized any dresses or anything I actually just changed my mind again on the colors. I know this looks creepy but its something davids bridal has to view colors and see the whole bridal party. Any thoughts?
