- Wedding: June 2014
I love the simplicity of the all blue hydrangea. It definitely depends on your wedding look and the rest of the flowers though.
@fridaythe13bride: Thanks, thats what I like about it too, so simple and pretty.
Were having a very small summer destination wedding in a very green and foresty place, the wedding colours are ice blue, silver and purple, I would have gone for purple flowers but purple really doesn’t suit me and I love blue.
I thought it may be good to add some green to tie it into the location but then it would seperate the blue flowers from the white in my dress which would be a shame as ice blue and white are my favourite colour combination.
I guess I just worry that blue hydranea on its own would maybe not be special enough for a bridal bouquet.
I think your dress is very 1920s glam, and both bouquets you have posted are more country garden wedding. The two are gorgeaous on their own, but kind of confusing together.
@tails: I’ve seen brides who do a bouquet of baby’s breath! So you don’t need to worry about it being special enough. It’s all what you like. My whole wedding is simply roses and hydrangea – my bouquet being all white roses. You could always add some white to the bouquet? I would stay away from the green though. That’s just my opinion.
@crayfish: I think thats been the hardest thing for me, as its a very old hollywood glamerous dress and I just don’t know what sort of bouquet would suit it. The ones above are just ones that I like but I do get what you mean about them looking a bit country/rustic.
Can you think of any suggestions for this type of dress?
I like the second one best–it’s gorgeous and striking, just like your dress!
@fridaythe13bride: Thanks, just kind’ve feels like out of all the flowers in the world I have chosen the ones that grow at the back of my garden but I guess if I like them thats all that matters 🙂
I guess they’ll be enough green in our location anyway so will avoid having it in my bouquet now.
I feel like anemones would go best.
I would go with a more true white flower, and less yellows, like this:
