Like some other bees on here, I’m worried I won’t like my bouquet. I have an idea what I think I would like based on pictures and flower names, but I’ve never really seen it all put together.
The reason for my concern is because I did something similar when I designed my e-ring. I told the jewler, I like this of ring X, this of ring Y and this of ring Z, put into one ring please. He did. It didn’t look that good together (I had to redesign it completely).
I’m worried that I will arrive on my wedding day to pick up my bouquet, and I don’t like it (I’m preserving my bouquet, so I really need to love it).
I thought it would just be easy if there was a bouquet making software, where you could add blooms, by colour/flower type and see what they look like together.
You can do hair trails? what about bouquet trials?

I don’t know about software, but I bet you could do a bouquet trial. Or if you know what flowers you’re interested in, you could check your grocery store and do a trial yourself. I know that the Whole Foods by me has an amazing flower selection.

Problem is, I’m on a tight floral budget ($250 in total for bouquets and corsages (mom is making boutinerres from silk dollars store flowers).I’d like to spend about $100 on my bouquet.
Also, I’ve been visiting the grocery stores and learning the vocabulary of “flower” (I have a black thumb, all new to me). I would like to have the the following colours: red, brown and yellow.
I think I am looking for non-flower alternatives red eucapytus or red wheat, cranberries, plus inexpensive flowers like roses, gerberas, instead of cala lillies). Again, I’m getting ideas from seeing each separately in a bouquet, but not sure what it will look like all together to get a proper balance of colour.
