    I am still considering whether or not to do all color or white and color (the color being a garnet/deep red). Either way, I think with my having a crystal white dress, I definitely need some color in my bouquet. ๐Ÿ™‚

    My flowers are white garden roses and white gardenias with blue delphinium and blue veronica, and plenty of greenery. I prefer a more open look to the tight packed ones, and I had heard that white flowers tend to fade against a white dress in pictures.

    Mine was like KrissyBee’s inspiration! I didn’t want white, but I wasn’t having really intense color at the wedding, either, so I went with a soft white/ivory/blush look. Mine’s on the right and my BM’s flowers are on the left to show you the difference [attachment=709502,91742]

    I am so totally torn on this issue. I love color, but I’m afraid one bouquet with all my colors will be too busy, but the plain white/ivory will be too plain. My florist is going to hate me.

    Definitely colored… I like bouquets that are mostly one color but with slight variations in shades.

    Ours were pink arm bouquets.  They were not a really loud color, but just enough to alleviate the white on white look.  They were set up so NotFroofy carried hers on her left arm, and I carried mine on my right, so we could hold hands.

    Mine’s a soft pinkish/coral bouquet and is being made now.  This is the other bouquet made by the designer and the one I’m getting made w/a little bit of a difference (slightly larger with a tad more coral color in it).

    I did a dark colored, dramatic bouquet.  I loved it!

    As someone who is already married, let me give you a suggestion.   Try your dress on and hold bouquets with it (most bridal salons have fake ones to see.  If not buy a few silks in coor and white.)  I thought I wanted a colored bouquet.  But when I went to try my dress on again, the lady handed me a colored bouquet and everyone kinda went “eww….”  It  just looked bizarre next to my dress.  So I asked her for a white bouquet, and it just worked.  Id test it out

    I’m thinking something like this…  Love the saturated colors, minus the dangling pieces.
