I think you need to hold it up next to your dress to decide.  I think its beautiful and I had planned on colors with my dress too.  Then I tried it on and held various bouquets at kleinfeld (burgundy, white, blue, red, orange, etc) and the ONLY ONE that clicked with me was the white.  It was like the "I just know" feeling.  Thats what Id suggest.

If that isnt an option, I truly dont think it is TOO dark – it is elegant, not gothic at all.

 I love the bouquet!  I love those colors for a fall or winter wedding.  Very rich and showy, not goth.  If it were goth you’d be donning a wedding dress a la shanna moakler in some deep dark color.  Richness is GORGEOUS!

maybe a little girly embelishment of some sort would girlie it up since it is so dark. maybe some rinestones? i do love it, but it does have a gothic vibe goin on…

love the dress!

I’m with Gamblina–what about something else in there? Like some sprigs of little decor like rhinestones or pearls, something else glam but a little less on the dark side? The only reason I say that is because honestly… if it was too dark for your dress, you’d want it to match a little!

Also, not to sound weird, but if you were bleach-blond this also may look a little too dark–I think Ashlee’s hair sets it off perfectly as far as balance, so keep that in mind!

It’s beautiful regardless though and best wishes to you!

@erdz80….I haven’t finalized my flowers yet. But I am pretty set on Black Magic and Baccara roses, Dark red Arabian Nights dahlias and some dark red and black feathers. I also really like spider mums too.

It’s a nice look, as long as it ‘goes’ with your wedding colors/decor. Don’t let anyone change your mind, it is a very glamourous bouquet!

I LOVE it! If you feel it is too dark you can add some white flowers (calla lillies, etc.) to give it some pop and lighten it up but I think it is great the way it is!

It looks beautiful! And I love that y ou are doing something different! As long as your groom is wearing a black tux, I think it will go just fine!

The photo defo makes them look nearly black… which gives off the goth/rocker vibe to me. I’d love them so long as you could tell they were eggplant and not black. Make sure to consider your venue’s lighting as well… since low romantic light would definately make them look black.

I LOVED Ashlee’s bouquet, but it was a bit dark for me to use at my wedding. I’m using dark purple dahlias and burgundy dahlias and calla lillies in my bouqet.
