i have been struggling with my choice of bouquet for some time now… Not so much the flowers but… The ribbon. It sounds ridiculous. But I don’t want to have an ivory ribbon. I am having something very similar to the pic above.
i have asked my florist… To which she replied – it’s your wedding – you do want you want. Which is great but I need some more solid advice… What do you think of the blue/white ribbon?
my groom is in a blue suit and maids in a pearl pink 50s style dress. We’re having a vintage/eclectic wedding with lots of different things on the tables and I thought that something a bit different for my bouquet…

Was totally not aware of any requirements on having an ivory ribbon.
The florist’s advice is pretty solid; it’s your wedding!
I think the blue would tie in nicely with the something old, something new etc.

i didnt know either! My mum said I have to have ivory but I’m not sure that I want that. And I wasn’t sure if this ribbon looked pods… But I love it! Thanks for your advice 🙂 I never saw myself questioning ribbon with only 9 weeks to go!!!

if you like it and it will match the theme/decor, go for it. it’s your wedding.
my ribbon was fuschia pink not white/ivory.

If your mom’s not insistent on it for any particular reason just go with what you want~

@walking-on-sunshine: I think the blue and or ivory would be fine, it is your wedding. I am going to ask my seamstress to edge finish a long strip of fabric from my dress (since it will be WAY to long) and use that for my ribbon, and use a smaller different color ribbon to attach my charms. That way I can tie in my bouquet to the groom’s attire.

The blue ribbon is lovely.

I’m personally not a fan of the striped ribbon, but that’s me. If you like it, go for it! It’s your bouquet, not your mother’s.
Also, when I read “pods” I thought this was some Aussie slang term I’d never heard of before!

@thumpurr: thank you! I’m starting to feel a little better about it now 🙂 I spoke in a huge amount of detail with my FI last night about the ribbon… He was… Supportive? As any man can be talking about ribbon at 11pm! Lol.
@julies1949: thank you 🙂 I think I have decided and ill go with it!
@sourcandy: yeah my FI said the same. There will be people that don’t like it but I really like it but can’t put my finger on why! No that was my phone auto correcting odd to pods. But pods are an amazing snack food made here with biscuit and chocolate and different fillings like snickers, mars, honeycombe etc etc! When I wrote it I automatically wanted to gorge myself own a packet of those!!!

I would do the pearl pink to match your girls.

@walking-on-sunshine: my bridesmaids were in navy and they had ribbons similar to the above. i LOVE those ribbons and used them in a reception as well. how “formal” is your dress? since I had a full length dress with beading i did navy with a white lace overlay to coordinate with the maids.
