Choosing colours for flowers, bridesmaids, etc..

I am trying to figure out what colours will best match with my dress. It is an ivory dress and i was hoping for nice and bright colours since it a late spring wedding, but i have been told that softer pastels go better with ivory. I know its my wedding and I can do whatever i want but I want it to look good! My bridesmaids dont have any preference to a colour and my only no no's are purple, blue and black. my favourite colour is pink and i was hoping to find a nice pink but i wanted to include at least one other accent colour. Luckily it is fairly early in the planing stage but any suggestions or ideas on how to decide would be so helpful!!

thanks, if you can send me some links, i just haven't really seen anything that jumps out at me yet. i just dont see alot of sample pictures with dresses in in ivory...much appreciated!
If you want to chose lighter shade you can go with baby pink or in bright color you can opt for royal blue both look elegant and enhance your dress.
plus size dresses
Hi Tracy

So we know you are wearing Ivory, what colour are your bridesmaids wearing?? - This would make such
a huge difference in what you choose for them and than you can co-ordinate it so it all ties in nicely!!

I think you could do a lot with Ivory, I personally Like all shades of pinks with lime greens.
but on the other hand you could go with Late', chocolate colours with pinks - I recently did a great combination
of this if this helps you - check out my website under Wedding flowers or Love stories tab.

Cheers & good luck!

Good luck

Ivory looks great with light pink with some green accents. 

I second the chocolate with ivory/mauve combo. That sounds old fashioned and soft and beautiful!

How about pink and white or yellow, it will be nice.
