ok bees!! I need everyone’s opinion because I’m at a complete loss and am torn.
My colors are black, white & burgundy. I am doing silk flowers for the wedding party, but fresh for centerpieces [only bc the place that is hosting the ceremoney/reception offers them with my wedding package].
My dress is white and my maids’ dresses are black. I will be carrying either a black/white boquet or a plain white one with black damask ribbon.
I can not decide on whether I want my maids to carry burgundy boquets or white ones?
I think the burgundy would be gorgeous against their black dresses, but maybe the white ones would “POP” more?
Maybe I can do the best of both worlds and have my Maid/Matron of Honor carry a burgundy boquet and the maids white? Or vice versa? See my dilemma!?

I was a Bridesmaid or Best Man in a wedding last year in a black dress and white bouquet. It did look awesome, especially in the pictures. So I would go with that option.
I wouldn’t have a different bouquet for the Maid/Matron of Honor, just because three different bouquets might be kind of distracting (and more expensive to create maybe?), but that’s just me.
Just want to mention too that I would go with a black ribbon on the bridal bouquet, instead of black flowers. That’s just my personal preference.

I like mixed color bouquets – maybe throw in some orchids with white for the bridesmaids? Babys breath and green filler?

i love the mixed idea
maybe you can do all white
Maid/Matron of Honor do mostly white w/ a few burgundy (maybe the burgundy can be a different type of flower?)
and then the rest of the bms opposite w/ mostly burgundy and a few white
roses and lilies are cute together
