Actually I’ve never heard of the Fiance picking out the bridal bouquet.  Maybe its an old tradition?  I agree with you, my Fiance would have NO IDEA on how to pick that out (and be good with it).  Pictures, descriptions, and all these other girly things he wouldn’t give a rats behind about.  lol

We both actually picked it out together (rather I picked it out, he was there and agreed … as he played on his Iphone until we got to boutinniers)  lol

Its not dyed.  We’re using hydrangeas with accents of calla lillies (and something else, its been so long I’m not even sure I remember anymore!)  lol  We finalize it within 3 weeks actually. 

As far as payment .. thank you Future Mother-In-Law.  😉

Say what?! I’ve never heard of the groom choosing the bouquet. If I let Fiance pick mine, it would be horribly hideous! I most certainly am choosing my own bouquet.

haha i wouldn’t trust a groom to pick the flowers!  I chose mine and paid for them myself.

never heard of that…. and would NEVER do that. I think my Fiance could handle it but i am too much of a control freak to let that happen.

I can’t imagine letting someone else pick out my bouquet!  My wife and I picked ours out together, since we wanted matching ones.

I’m picking it, although I have ask him for his opinion on what he has liked.

I picked my own, as Fiance doesn’t really care about the flowers.  I can’t imagine letting him pick it out, and I don’t think he’d even want to!  Can’t say I’ve ever heard of that before!

Oh gosh, I can only imagine.

I *think* Fiance would do a good job and put the effort in to make it look good…but then again I have to match his clothes someday.  Hmmm…

Well, never heard of that.  Perhaps it’s a tradition best done away with!

I’ve never heard of this either, and I would NOT want Fiance picking the flowers.

My Mother is actually paying for our flowers as our wedding gift. But I’m picking them.

I am picking my own bouquet (along with all of the other flowers).  My Fiance doesn’t care about flowers, so why should he stress over picking out something that I’d have fun choosing?

My Fiance is also not paying for the flowers.

I’ve read about this before when looking at who traditionally pays for what.  We are definately not doing this.

I’ve heard that it’s tradition that the groom PAY for the bride’s bouquet, but not pick it out.  Perhaps that’s what she meant?

I have heard of the tradition of him paying for it, but no, I picked out my own bouquet.  Honestly he would have been completely lost had I left it up to him!  lol
