That bouquet has an awful lot of bling on it, and so does the dress…I’d personally tone the bouquet down a bit, but if you like it, go for it!

No! Very glam! Love all three! I think the birdcage veil actually tones it down rather than a full length.

Don’t get me wrong–I think the bouquet is GORGEOUS! But I also think that when you put the two next to each other (especially in pics), it’ll look like a ton of glitz. What you’re describing still sounds glam, but in a toned-down, sophisticated way. 🙂

I’m sorry, but I think that bouquet would detract from the dress.  The dress is the main event.  I don’t think the bouquet should compete for attention.

You can go for the same feel, but maybe tone down the bling on the bouquet a bit. 

 

I’ll give you a floral example.  I fell in love with this bouquet:

 

But my dress has elaborate fabric work (no beating, but little flowers made out of fabric).  One of the florists I interviewed gently showed me how busy that bouquet is and how it is mean to go with a simpler dress.

We determined that this bouquet (in different colors) had a similar feel, but was less busy and would compliment the dress, not compete with it:

 

If you removed the bling from just the ball of that bouquet, I think it would look better. You could still have the bling on the handle, but it wouldn’t be as distracting.

I love your dress!! I think the bouquet is stunning too, but I don’t like a birdcage veil with that dress…something just seems off to me about it. But god that’s a beautiful dress!

I think with the amount of bling on your dress, some deep red roses would look amazing! If you want to stick with white, I suggest white flowers. The bouquet is nice but is probably more suited to a simple dress.

Everything is gorgeous. I caught my breath when I saw the pic of your dress. I think everything goes perfectly together.  I don’t think you need to tone down anything.   However, if you do go with all of these, you’ll need an over the top venue, you’ll need to go glam all the way.
