A halterneck would look good if you have good shoulders and aren't too big up top (that's if your corset is strapless) I wore a Monsoon sea green long halterneck to a very formal wedding and it looked good. I have similar colouring and would suggest blues/greens esp. if your eyes are lightish. I wouldn't have anything with spaghetti straps. You could also do a very simple elegant strapless dress with a slightly flaring skirt. (like a long A line)

If you have big boobs then dont do strappy.

I think that a 'Much Ado about nothing' style with the dress flaring from the boobs is very flattering.

Actually not flaring but do you know what I mean?

I think most colours would suit you. She must be choosing the colour though. Has she mentioned it?
