    I voted for #2, but it’s definitely a tad more casual than the first one.  We have the same colors, but I’m using light blue instead of aqua.  My bouquet will be all red roses and gerbers, with a couple of pale blue butterflies.

    I like the second one because it is fuller. If the first one was fuller, I would like that one better 🙂

    What’s the formality/theme of your wedding? They are both pretty, but the second one is more casual and a bit more rustic with the berry-looking things.

    I am huge fan of gerber daisies, so I voted for #2. But I do agree that the all-rose bouquet is more traditional/formal, the second one is more casual/modern, so to some degree it depends on the look you’re going for.  LOVE the combination of red and aqua, by the way. 🙂

    I love number two with the hypericum berries. The roses in the 2nd photo look like California roses in comparison to photo #1 where they look like Ecuadorians w/waxflower. Have you thought about red cabbage roses? it’s going to be June after all! Such a great time for flowers! 🙂

    ps i love red and aqua together – great choice!

    I like the second one – I think it has a lot more visual interest.

    Both are beautiful though so you certainly can’t go wrong either way.

    I think that a large full bouquet of red roses is best, esp in a formal wedding. It will look stunnig with aqua ribbon on bottom. The #2 photo above looks better only b/c the #1 is smaller. Unless you are IN LOVE w the gerberas or they are used in other places I would stick to the classic and pure large bouquet of roses. (I love gerberas and had them in our wedding, but have flower regret wishing I stuck to the more formal). Best of luck!

    @shushu1208: I found this one here:

    … and a while ago, I did cupcakes for a wedding with this color scheme.  It was gorgeous and I fell in love with it then.  I’ll be incorporating cherry blossoms too, since my wedding will be during cherry blossom season in VA.

    What inspirations are you using?
