I say nay to the orange flowers. Together with the black reminds me of Halloween, but that’s just my opinion!

I love it all, even the orange flowers. However I’m from Australia so Halloween isn’t as big here (sad 🙁 ) so it doesn’t scream Halloween to me. That being said, I think that because it’s not just black, but black and white polka dots that it’s not Halloweeny at all.

In short: I LOVE it. 🙂

If you love it, that’s all that matters. I think it looks great.

love the fun black and white! hm. . . are you dead set on the orange flowers? i think pretty much any monochromatic bouquet would look awesome with the black and white.. . pink red, green, yellow. . .but if orange is what you love then go for it! maybe you are going for the Halloween theme on purpose since your wedding is in Oct?

You had me until the converse and orange flowers.

The converse are so tacky and overdone. and the orange clashes with everything and screams halloween to me to. the rest I love.

I like everything but the Bridesmaid or Best Man hair flower. With the polka dot dress I think it’d be a bit matchy-matchy and kind of costume-y. I’d go for a plain white flower.*

Also, is orange your or his favorite color? If not, I’d change it up a little bit. Unfortunately, even though they do look beautiful, people will think “Halloween” when they see orange and black together. If that wouldn’t bother you, keep them. If so, why not go for a reddish-orange or just an entirely different color, like a dark teal or eggplant.*

*If you choose a different color for your bouquet, you could use that color for you Bridesmaid or Best Man hair flowers as well! =]

I think the Flower Girl dress is so cute.  I think everything goes together well, except the orange flowers.  They are pretty but they don’t go together well.  I think the pop of color is a good idea, just maybe a different color.

Oh, how I just love black and white!  The polka-dots are adorable and unique at the same time.  The only thing I’m not so hip on is the orange flowers as well.  When I saw the anemone’s on the cake, I had to go searching for a bouquet with anemones.  Unfortunately, though, I think they’re only available in the Spring.  So…instead, maybe you could consider having orange gerbera’s since some have those cute little black dots in the center.  Or, maybe you might want to consider a white and orange bouquet with a black and white polka dot ribbon wrapped around the stem.  Just some ideas (I just love flowers)…

Love it all except (again) the orange flowers.  Maybe pink?  That would be a great pop of colour!

Your dress looks amazing on you!! Like most PPs said I’d switch the flowers but if you love them do it. It’s your wedding.

Since you’re getting married in October, I think the orange flowers a great. If you’re worried about it looking a little too much like holloween, maybe you could add a little yellow to the flowers, or even get flowers that have a little more yellow in them… You’d still get the look you wanted without the holloween feeling.

I love it all except the greenery with the orange flowers. Everything else is so streamlined and modern – I would streamline/modernize the flowers by ditching the greenery and adding a fantastic fabric wrap around the stems. The greenery is too “grocery store bouquet” to me – especially since everything else you picked is sooooo lovely and gorgeous!

I love it all!  I love the pop of orange.  It breaks up the pattern of the black and white.  But if you’re worried about it being to bright, you might consider a matching bouquet with orange accents included.

keep everything except the flowers. Maybe pink or yellow? 
I don’t know why people feel that the Converse shoes are “tacky” and overdone. I say mens dress shoes are overdone. ^_^
