    I think it depends on the season, the darker colors would be good in the Fall and Winter, the lighter colors for summer and Spring.

    Ok, I see your date is in Oct. Then, I’d do the dark red. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Those dark red are GORGEOUS!  I think they will add more interest.

    I really like the dark bouquet with the ivory wedding gown.  That is really beautifully dramatic, I just wonder if similar bouquets with chocolate brown BM dresses would be too dark?  IDK?

    That first pic was one of my bouquets inspiration pics! I’m doing that bouquet (with the curly fern and feathers) in black magic roses and karma chocolate dahlias.

    I’m biased…. but I voted dark red.

    Well, then, if its too dark why not have the bride use the dark red and the BM’s do the blush pink and ivory. Who says you can’t have it all?

    I actually gave the same picture of the red and purple bouquet to my florist for my wedding.  I love it!

    I’m with evalaque on this one. You carry a dark bouquet and the brides can carry a small, lighter one. Yay! Both!

    I think for a fall wedding the red fits in better and is a gorgeous color combo! If it wasn’t in the fall? I’d prefer the lighter pink

    I would vote for a mix – I think the two could look great together! Those dusty pink roses with the dark callas ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’ve seen “mixed” bouquets (all light with a few dark flowers or vice versa), and to tell you truth – ick; I didn’t care for it.  I say stick with a more monochrome color family (dark for you, light for the girls).

    Since pink isn’t really a fall color, how about this: stay in the brown color family and use ivory (the shade of your dress) instead of pink roses for your maids. 

    What colors are you trying to emphasize? So far I see ivory/chocolate/red.  

    Here’s a little something I found from favorideas.com:

    Finally, autumn offers an opportunity to experiment with creative and woodsy bouquet choices, including seed pods, hypericum berries, ryegrass and bittersweet vines. Some of the most charming (if unconventional) bouquets and boutonniéres use copper wire to gorgeous effect.
