go to the paint store and get a bunch of color charts, take them home and ‘play’ with them, you’ll soon find what colors you prefer to put with the eggplant.
personally i would use flowers with green blooms such as hydrangeas, bells of ireland, green hypericum, there are green lilies as well as green button mums, and green orchids. then there’s clover and beautiful fresh ferns that could be added. it would be very pretty.
google image search on ‘pictures of green flower bouquets’ you will probably get quite a few pictures pop up.
good luck and happy wedding~!

I would go with white personally, maybe yellow. If you pick ones that are in season, it will keep the costs down.

Here’s a good starting list http://weddings.about.com/od/weddingflowers/a/Season.htm

You can google image the flowers if you’re not sure what they look like.

I’d go with something yellow. It would show up very nice in pictures. White should only be for the bride. Yellow flowers and ferns.

You can get cream roses that have dark red edges to the petals – that would look beautiful,
Maybe white lillies???

Take care you, Lulu x

Try flowers in shades of lavender, pale pink, and white.search wholesale flowers and go from there. Most have a photo gallery if you are not flower literate. Many of today’s floral trends lend well to DIY and allow you to save money. My granddaughter is using Globalrose.com they have both wholesale bundles of 250 roses or selection of 4 doz roses for around $70(2 colors) also selection of lillies and other flowers. Hope this helps. Congratulations.
