What flowers do I use?

I'm having a melt down because I am clueless when it comes to flowers. My dress is ivory and the other girls are wearing Lapis dresses from David's Bridal, which is a really dark eggplant. We aren't really using another accent color at all in terms of color scheme, so I really don't know where to go with all of this. Does anyone have any ideas? I'm also really trying to be budget-friendly.

    Are you using a florist?  If so, and this is what I did, tell them your price range, your favorite flowers, and ask them to create something.  That's what I did and they turned out beautifully.

    I had the same colors. My dress was ivory and my girls wore an eggplant dress. I had a bouquet with a mix of different purple flowers and my girls had bouquets with white roses and a few purple flowers. (sorry don't know the names of the actual flowers)

    I basically did what pp suggested. I went to our florist and showed him pictures of the colors I wanted and told him to pick flowers that were those colors, in season, and in our budget.
