Hi Wollies Thinking of these bridesmaids dresses - But when it comes to flowers and all the other bits and bobs you try to match how would you go about it - theres no turquoise flowers out there!!! There is some lilac in the dress - should i just go with matching with the lilac and ignore the primary colour of the dress? Really like the BM dresses but foresee running into major difficulties over coming months matching colour schemes? O:| Any advice girls?? :thnk

You can sort out flowers for any colour of dress, so I wouldnt worry about it, you may be able to get some kind of flower that colour. Even if you went for ivory flowers, you could still bring in turquoise by the florist adding little gems into bouquet or wrapping ribbon around stems. Lilac flowers could be nice. If you like them, go for it!

Hiya! Well we're having dark teal which is sort of similar and I found the same. On the flowers I don't mind, the florist can advise me but for invitations, chair sashes etc I couldn't figure it out. So what I've done is actually based the colour scheme around colours that go with it. So navy and silver have come out as the colours moreso. Girls will have silver accessories and shoes and prob navy ribbon on flowers or something!! Once it matches, who cares!!! haha!!

My Mam is wearing a turquoise suit with a raspberry coloured hat, bag and shoes. The two colour together look really stunning. So you could tone the dresses with raspberry colours or ivory. :wv
