I made 2 bouquets just to experiment. Now I dont know which i like more…
Bouquet 1. I made this first. I like it but I’m afraid it’ll take way from my dress.
Bouquet 2. I made this because i like the cascading bouquet look. I made this a bit more plain to not over power my dress.
This is my dress
this is my bridesmaid bouquet, if this helps your choice.
and these are the boutenieres i made for the boys

Please tell me why you voted the way you did!

I think the first one matches the bridesmaid bouquets better. The second one looks plainer than the Bridesmaid or Best Man ones.

@aenriquez311: I picked #1. I get where you’re going with the cascading one, but I think you have to pack the flowers in too closely to get a natural shape. Instead of “cascading” it just looks kind of like a teardrop. I like the shape (and flowers) in the first one a LOT more.

I like the sparkles in #1 best. Is #2 too small? Looks like it might be but perhaps it’s just the perspective in the photo.

Voted one, I don’t like cascading in general but I think it only really works with things that are soft and flowy, what you’re working with is too stiff to really “cascade”.

I voted for bouquet one, because I love all the different textures it has. I think since you are having paper flowers there is no reason not to play with this aspect that is unique to the material! I’m also pretty style eclectic though.

I voted for #1, I don’t like cascading flowers in general and it’s also very plain.

I like the contrast of the flowers in #1!

I voted for #1. However, if you want to use both so the other is not wasted on nothing you can carry the teardrop bouquet and have your Maid/Matron of Honor carry the round one.

Thanks, bee. You’ve been a real help!

I picked #1 – it looks more professional. The second one looks like an odd shape and I think the materials look less expensive.

I picked #1 for the sparkle! Where did you get the instructions for the flowers? They are both beautiful. If I were you I would use the second one for tossing so you can keep the first as a keepsake.

the second one looks to plain next to the Bridesmaid or Best Man bouqets. Yours should be the one to POP
