Which Bouquet?

I’m so excited about today’s post! A ‘real’ bride contacted me and asked for advice on choosing her bridal bouquet. I thought it would be fun to share her wedding vision with you and get your opinion…so, here’s what she sent me…

The color palette…

Which would you choose?

Thanks for helping this precious bride narrow down her choices for a bridal bouquet. She has agreed to send me photos of her wedding and we’ll have fun seeing which bouquet she actually chooses! 

Stay warm…we’re even having a snow day in Central Texas today! Can’t believe it…

I say Bouquet #2!!!

I like No. 4, but only because Callas didn't really make an appearance anywhere else. Based on her wedding plans, your bride seems like a super fun girl, and bouquet 4 says "party at the resort!" Can't wait to see her actual photos!

I vote #2. That's a lot of dress and I think something simple would be best.

Thank you so much for featuring me!I'm SOOOO excited for this! I'm LOVING the options and I can't wait to see what everyone thinks!

- The "super fun" bride :-)

#4! she has such a unique vision and I think the other ones are rather classic (other than #1 but I agree - that's a lot going on) so #4 marries simple and unique! I love the burlap mixed in!

Although I LOVE #1, I would have to say go with #2. Only because the dress is so artistic, all eyes should be on the dress and then pop to the color of your bouquet... BUT then again.... I SO LOVE #1.

Tough choice to make.

Bouquet 1 is absolutely out of this world! Wow!

Bouquet #2 with the orange callas. The dress is exquisite and doesn't need anything showy to take attention away from it. Add a calla or two into the bridesmaids' bouquets to tie them together a bit more. It will be a stunning wedding1

Bouquet 1 Because i love the bright colours :)

Em said...

What amazing colors to choose! I love it!

alicia.. said...

I'm between #1 & #2. Definitely a brightly colored bouquet for this wedding!

I would choose bouquet #2. I like pairing the monofloral bouquet with the very detailed wedding dress. If you give the bridal bouquet and the bridesmaids' bouquets a similar handle wrap, then it will help tie everything together.

#1 - Hellooooo - how fun! It brings in a little bit of the blue from the fun maids dresses - and plays on the fun textures in the bridal gown. What a fun palette and theme!! Good luck choosing!
