Which Bouquet?

I had a reader email me a while back and suggest that I write a post featuring different bridal gown styles and the bouquet type I would recommend for each dress. I’ve been thinking about her request and I have an idea…

I’ll post a dress and give you 3 of my favorite bouquet choices for that particular dress…then you tell us your opinion on the choices. I have a lot more fun when you share your opinions and ideas. So, let’s see how this goes….

Definitely the last bouquet, soft and romantic.

I would choose the second bouquet. It's simple enough not to drive the eyes crazy when it's paired with the intricate detailing on the dress, but it's bold enough to still hold it's own.

For sure, the second bouquet. The monochromatic and mono-flora design plus the large flat leaves give the eyes a place to rest while processing all the details. Plus, it looks so lush so it is in league with the luxurious dress.

I like number two. The ruffles of the tulips echo the ruffles of the dress, without taking attention away from the dress.

Jenny said...

Number 2 for sure. It's perfect.

I'm torn between the second and third. The second isn't too much and allows the dress to draw the attention but the third is so dainty and frilly like the dress. I just can't pick!

the second bouquet is the winner for me. simple but strong, compliments and reflects the detail of the dress without getting lost or being too much

Love the second bouquet. The striations in the green leaves mimic the top of the dress while the ruffled edges of the flowers mimic the bottom of the dress. The simplicity of the bouquet allows the dress to take center stage.
