I’ve never been asked for my bouquet back (real flowers, silk flowers, etc.).  It wouldn’t bother me if the bride asked for my bouquet because I would end up pitching it anyway.  I wouldn’t have any reason to keep it.   

Honestly, tell your girls that if they don’t want to keep the bouquet that you would like them back.  Give them the option.

winterwoodlandbride15: I had a fake flower bouquet in one wedding I was in, and the bride didn’t ask for it back.  I had a real flower one in my sisters wedding and she did ask for it back.  She wanted to preserve the flowers.  It didn’t bother me one bit either way.  I’m not really a sentimental person when it comes to objects though, so I probably won’t even keep my own! lol

winterwoodlandbride15:  I have never kept a bouquet when I was a bridesmaid. But they usually go on the sweetheart table anyway. I kept all of my bouquets and put them in vases in my house. They lasted about 2 weeks.
