The first bouquet is gorgeous! I was going to have wildflowers but then had the privilege of my sister providing my bouquet from her allotment *swoon*!

I’d pick whichever would last the longest – you don’t want it to have shed its petals before you even get down the aisle!

I do prefer the first one. Have you thought about paper flowers?

My bouquet is going to be a real mish-mash! I’ve asked my crafty friends to all make me a flower for my bouquet; beaded, crochet, paper, fantasy film, metal, glass. I’m really excited to see how it turns out 🙂

If you have friends/family in different areas, is it possible that you could ask them all to do some dried wild flowers for you, then throw them together with ribbon?

Oh wow, they’re both so pretty!! I guess it comes down to money-do you want to spend the extra on your boquet?

chachamaru :  Is the first one dried and the second one clay? I prefer the first one. A clay bouquet sounds really heavy, is the weight a concern?

I love the first one! I don’t know if you’re an arts and crafts kind of girl, but have you considered ordering the dried flowers and making the bouquet yourself? You could then make it as large as you’d like. You could also make boutonnières to match.

Daisy_Mae :  I had the same thought, clay flowers sound heavy and burdensome to carry. 

Both are pretty though!

chachamaru :  I think the clay bouquet is pretty, but I’d worry about breaking it – seems quite delicate

Honestly I really, really love dried flowers so I’m already biased! I have some sitting in a vase next to me! :p

I think the dried flowers look really pretty! The clay bouquet is pretty as well, but look almost too pristine, if that makes sense.
