I don't give advice, but my wife will sometimes counsel a couple that white flowers aren't a great idea since they won't stand out from the wedding dress at all. I find that most brides have colors picked out by the time we meet, and it just doesn't feel like an area for me to tell them to change their mind.

The only other caution I have is that black or very dark dresses when shot in evening sunset conditions might look brown.
