My bouquet was made for me, ages ago, and its been sitting in the shipping box in our spare closet since the day i got it. Its pretty, dont get me wrong, its got five big flowers, plus some babys breath, greenery, a few tiny white flowers, and some sparkly things added here and there. Its beautiful.
two nights ago i made my tossing bouquet, because id like to keep my own bouquet. I made it out of two premade bouquets, pulled apart and reassembled into one big one. The flowers are prettier, smaller, and more aesthetically pleasing than my bouquet.
Is it a bad thing that i like the one i made, a LOT more than the one that was made for me? I like the handle better (i wrapped it in white velvet ribbon), i like the look of the flowers better. Only bad part is, FH was sitting right next to me when i made the toss bouquet, so he has obviously seen it, and he has not seen my original bouquet.
What do you think i should do?

Boys are soooo oblivious. He won’t even notice it’s the same… and if he does, is it a huge deal?
Keep the one you like 🙂

i dont know. I like to keep traditions and superstitions, we are doing all of the old wives tales superstitions things for the wedding. I know in my head that my marriage is not doomed just because he saw the bouquet, but in my heart i dont want him to see it until i walk down the aisle. So confused.

@MrsWinTraining2014: I have never ever heard that the husband shouldn’t see the bouquet.. Just the bride and dress. I think you’re fine.

If you FI is anything like my SO – he won’t remember…. besides if his first thought when he sees you coming down the aisle is – hey wasn’t that the ‘toss’ bouquet ?! you need to run the opposite way 😉 hehe. Carry the one you made and love, and toss the other

Thanks. I just talked to my mom and she agrees with you. So, tonight i will transfer all my sparklies to the tossing bouquet (dont want a metal ornament beaning someone in the face) and put it up, out of the way. Thanks for your help!

Keep the one you made. I can’t imagine he would have paid much attention to it when you were making it, and there will be so many other things on the wedding day that he’ll be paying attention to.

I can almost guarantee that even if he sat next to you the whole time you were making it, he still couldn’t pick it out of a lineup.
