Which Bouquet?

The Dress…

…the Pleated Fantasy Gown from BHLDN by Anthropologie…

"Imagine appearing at the top of the aisle in countless bias-cut pleats. Dancing for hours in a near-weightless cloud of cotton-silk. Dashing out the door, with just a bit of train trailing behind you.”

The Bouquets…

So hard! You know I WANT to choose the callas because they are callas and I love monobotanical bouquets, but they somehow feel to heavy for a "weightless cloud of silk (although that aubergine looks great with gray). I think I pick No. 1. No, the callas. No, wait, bouquet 1. Ack! I can't choose!

I love #1 not only it looks great with that dress, But the designer and I are GREAT friends ~

Definitely Bouquet #1- the burgundy foliage provides a lovely contrast and floats around the flowers, much like the pleats seem to float around the dress.

Alright, two votes for bouquet #1in my office this morning. (I got in trouble for not inviting the two girls in my corner to play the last couple of weeks.) I am going to go against the grain however, and choose bouquet #3. I just love the deep color with the shade of the gown. But then again, bouquet #1 is fabulous, but I am going to stick with my first instinct.

Let me start by saying that bouquet #1 is far and away my favorite of those bouquets. I LOVE pussy willow, love all the organic texture, just love everything about it. I also don't particularly love calla lilies, I think they're too sophisticated and stately for me! However, I think bouquet #1 is actually too much texture for that dress and love the striking simplicity of the calla bouquet, as well as the color contrast, for that particular dress! I ran into the same issue with my dress - all of my favorite flowers like astilbe, sweet peas- really ruffly, intricate flowers - were just too much texture and detail for the dress, which has a lot going on already. I am choosing to stick to a single flower type, which totally goes against my nature...you only get one bridal bouquet - I want all of my favorite flowers represented! (this is why I need to become a floral designer - because then you don't have that feeling that you "only get one" bouquet in life ; )

I'm torn between #1 & #3!! I love the color and style of #3, and of course the callas :)

But I'm gonna have to go with #1 - I love the agonis, and the grey of the pussy willow is just splendid :)

btw, I am in LOVE with this dress from BHLDN!!!!! My absolute favorite!!

It's between number one and number two for me. I just wonder if number one is too busy for the dress... ;)
