    Personally, I do think it’s possible for a bouquet to be too big and potentially detract from the beauty of a dress.  Not necessarily DISTRACT entirely, but take away from.  Your bouquet is unquestionably beautiful, but it also has some bold color that could certainly draw the eye.  Ultimately, it’s going to come down to how YOU feel.  I made my bouquet and after I made it, I started thinking it was too big.  I took it to one of my fittings with me and after seeing the two together I decided, yes, it IS too big.  I love my dress so much, I didn’t want a big bouquet taking away from the dress.  I ended up making a smaller, more understated bouquet.  This made ME feel happy.  My first bouquet came out beautifully, but, for lack of a better word, I was feeling self-conscious about it.  So it’s not a question of whether or not your bouquet is lovely, because it is, but whether or not YOU like how it looks with your dress.  For me, I just didn’t want the question nagging me in the back of my mind up until my wedding day.

    Go for a big one! Just remember to hold it at your belly button!

    Mine was big and I loved it.

    I had a MASSIVE BOUQUET! And I loved it! It’s too big if you can’t lift it up with two hands 😉
