I’m trying to decide how I want my flowers.
I’m pretty sure my own bouquet is going to be hand tied red anemones.
My bridesmaids will have a mix of other red flowers, probably daisies, anemones, roses, rananculus, maybe tulips or dahlias.
I like the look of the neat rounded bouquet that the bouquet holder gives, but I don’t know if it would look odd against my own more casual bouquet.
So what do you think?
1. Simple tied stems like my bouquet
2. Neat rounded bouquet with holder
3. Or a sort of mix, with a holder with stems attached. I don’t know how weird or fake these look though.

I said other only b/c of what I’m going to do it sort of a mix of your options. When I met with my florist, she told me that she generally likes to use the holder since the flowers stay more hydrated and you don’t have to worry about sticking them in water as soon as you can. However, realizing that many brides like the look of the stems, she will take the stems that she cuts off and attach them to the holder. Therefore, it looks more real than the 3rd option you show above.

@MUI831: hmm, that’s definitely another option. And you’re totally right about keeping them hydrated. Don’t want to be dripping down the aisle 😀
