I am just about ready to pull the trigger and order my wedding flowers for our elopment!!! We are going with real-touch flowers because they will be much easier for traveling and I am torn between two stunning bouquets.
Background on our taste:We are getting married on the beach in bermuda. I want colorful/beachy/fun, but not childish. It also very important to me that the bouquet doesn’t look too “posed,” in favor of a more natural freeflowing look. They are fake flowers, so another big concern of mine is which bouquet will look less obviously fake in photos?
Which do you prefer of these two? (Either would be tied with plain white ribbon)
Bouquet #1: More traditional/ less “tropical/beachy” to me. This is my Fiance’s preference, but I am still torn.
This one is so beautiful, and I love how it showcases the orange (my favorite color) in a way that is not too overpowering, as orange can be.

freshflowers: If you go with the 2nd one, I’d try switching-in hibiscus, for the big, green stuff (is that a form of sedum?). My family’s going to Bermuda, for our 9th time, in May. The 1st was for our honeymoon, in May 1978. Hibiscus is a pretty prominant flower (mostly pink, if I remember correctly?), as tall hedges of it line the roadways. My daughter’s dream was always to be married in Bermuda, but with 2 beloved grandmothers almost 90 years old, and not wanting to fly, she’s not able to do it. We’ll celebrate in May, though.

I love the second one… The succulents are so cute in it, the orchids scream “tropical” and the pop of orange is really pretty!

freshflowers: Wow both are gorgeous! I love the vibrant colors! I voted for 2 but it inched ahead for me by just a hair. I love the greens in it along with those beautiful orchids the plumeria flower peeking out (one of my favorites :))
