I love the look of the really bright or bold bouquets next to the white wedding dress, but I've heard comments that then when the bride walks down the aisle all you see are the flowers! I'm debating between a really bold bouquet that would be similar to my BMs or a softer and more pale version. What did you do, or what are you planning to do? Please post pictures! :)
I voted "pale bouquet," but to be a little clearer... this is my bouquet inspiration. I really like the white with pops of pink.
I voted pale, but I don't like bright colors in general. Minen was ivories and light yellows and blues.
I did ivory and pearls, my dress was ivory.
Mine was white. I don't really have a preference for the color of a bride's bouquet. White is just what mine ended up being.
I voted bright because mine was very bright. I had a kind of tropical theme going on and I loved my bouquet and I got so many compliments on the colors!
Here is mine
And here is one with my BMs
I had a bright bouquet. If you couldn't tell from my hair, I love bright colors.
I don't think it overshadowed me while walking down the aisle. Ha, and I was so nervous that I forgot to hand it off when I got to the end. I held onto it until my Man of Honor took it from me for the vows.
Mine was mostly white, with pops of color.
I was worried that having a very colorful bouquet would be too distracting, because my dress had a lot going on.
I'm pretty traditional so I'm mostly likely going to have an all white bouquet but I may throw in some pale pink since that is part of my color scheme. Haven't quite decided yet....
Mine was a full white bouquet, brides maids had full orange bouquets
Hi, I voted bright, because I love the vibrance of the bouquet!!
I had a white AND bold bouquet LOL. Red roses and white lilies.
I had a really bright bouquet, but that's exactly what I was going for. My bridesmaids wore black dresses, so the bouquets were where I brought in the color. I don't think the vividness of my bouquet detracted from my look-- it reflected my personality!
Mine was supposed to be white with pops of bright colours, but it ended up really muted. My girls' bouquets were bright, though.
Not sure which category my bouquet falls into.
My inspiration picture:
My actual bouquet:
The below picture is my inspiration. I love the way the red pops against the white dress and how the white flowers look against the red BM's dresses! This is exactly how I envision my wedding party.
I loved my bright bouquet and never considered white. I do think white/pale bouquets are pretty, but I love color and never wear white or pastels, so my ivory wedding dress was "plain" enough for me! I don't have any pics of me with my bouquet on this computer, but here it is alone:
These are great pictures!!
I personally like brights against a white dress and white against coloured dress.
I'm having a bright orange bouquet and a white dress, and my girls are having plain white bouquets and purple dresses.
I voted "other", my bouquet is a dark flowers with white cala lillys, they are silk;
maid of honor bouquet
I love bright against white. I never heard people say all you see then is flowers.
Mine was bright. I loved it. I knew I wanted pink flowers.
The bridesmaids had a little bit of blue to match the bouts.
@ivoryowl: I had all red roses and absolutely loved them! I doubt flowers could take away from the bride :)
Mine is the red and, black, and white bold one in the middle...the others are BMs...for some reason they do not look perfectly round but they really are!
I originally wanted to do white because I love the look of the bride with a very clean/white look. However, I really want some bright red flowers as well. Below is my inspiration:Got the 2nd one from another bee but I forgot to save her name with it... She had a winter wedding in the mountains.
My wedding colors are yellow and green (lemon and lime) with black accents. This is the picture of the bouquet that I showed my florist during our consultation but I am having yellow daffodils put in in place of the small yellow flower you see (not sure of the name). My bouquet will be white hydrangea, yellow roses, yellow daffodils, and green button mums.
I think any kind of contrast is more visually interesting. While I think all white is very pretty and elegant, it's not as eye catching. And people will look at more than just your flowers as you walk down the aisle not matter WHAT is in your hot little hand!
I can't really decide on mine. But the package from a local place is like $350 for 2 dozen rose boquet for me, 3 half dozen boquets for my girls, 6 bouts (Dads,Hubs,gms), 4 corsages and petals for the flower girl and two kissing balls for the candleabra.
I cant decide on either a shades of soft pink or a brite traditional red rose.
Oh oh oh!! I found a set of handkerchiefs I love to death and wanted to embroider myself or tie dye the wedding colors, but hand no idea what to do with them really...(pastel versions of the colors anyway)
So I can wrap them like this!! YAY!
I love the way all the bold colors look, but then I look back at the softer pinks and I love those too! Hmmm... still not sure about this one!! :)
I vote for bright and bold!!! I am not a fan of white as sometimes the flowers are more ivory or yellowish than white and that kinda erks me.....I am your typical perfectionist. Pale is also beautiful but was not my style as I needed some color for my winter wedding. I don't think you can go wrong as long as you are true to you. :). You will be gorgeous no matter what you choose. Good luck.
Here was mine obviously I like color and contrast ;):
i love bright and bold.
I voted other because mine was both white and bright. LOVED my bouquet!
This was my boquet inspiration, but I think I what I've worked out with my florist is going to be so much better. <3
Mine is actually going to have white peonies, white phalaenopsis orchids, white dendrobium orchids, bluebonnets or grape hyacinths, garden roses, jazmine blooms, light blue anemonies or scabioza. (So not the calla lillies as pictured above.)
So it's mostly going to be white/pale, with pretty 'pops' of blue. :)
I love bright bouquets! Mine is gonna be blues and purples. I do also like pale colors though. It looks so romantic and pretty.
