So im thinking about going with a really pale ivory for my dress. I really want white oriental lilies for my bouquet but would this look weird against the ivory dress?? BM bouquets are going to be white lilies too and there dresses are full length and cobalt blue. What do you reckon, would it all 'mesh' together??

I think it sounds lovely. The lilies will look slightly off-white anyway as the stamens are a creamy/pale green colour, and the petals aren't pure white. Perhaps have a bit of greenery in the bouquet around the base if you're worried about the colours? That would also serve to highlight the bouquet so it doesn't seem to disappear into your dress with flash photos.

I had an ivory dress with white lillies, the bouquet also had green and brown in it as well.

It was fine - didn't look strange at all. My bridesmaid had a smaller version and was wearing emerald green and that looked beautiful.
