I actually like the maid’s bouquet better – the colors of the first one blend into the dress too much (chamelon affect). And if the things’s that stick out of the bride’s bouquet are sweet peas, I’d ditch them. If the ceremony is outside, or at the club, as opposed to a venue such as a historic church, you’ll be fine. I’ve never considered gowns to be formal unless they were floor-length, personally.

I like the maids’ bouquet better.. In yours the purple color looks a bit over done.  If you could take out some of it then the color would be better balanced.

I’m not a fan of spray painted roses. Maybe if they leave them white?

I would check out garden roses. They give a fluffier-peony look.

ya boo to spray paint. Also there’s no pink in your bouquet. The bouquet in your inspiration has pink peonies. Also there wasn’t mich ivory in your inspiritaion except for the small fowers (fresia?). I also like hte maids bouquets much better.

To me, the original looks much more classy and expensive because peonies give a richer effect. Ivory roses are a little more common, and there aren’t any ivory roses in your inspiration pic.

I think that white rose color is too yellowish for the rest of it. Itd be more cohesive if it was a blush.

Roses come in all kinds of colors.. You may be able to find some of the appropriate colors without them being spray painted
