    My bouquet was completely white while my bridesmaids were colorful but they both prominently featured dahlias.

    Here’s mine:

    And my BMs:

    I am glad you post this. I am having a small wedding and my sister is standing for me.

     

    I put our boquet order in and ours match but I’m now leaning towards leaving hers with all the pinks and adding more white to mines. But would this look silly considering its only her and I?

     

    I’ve seen many pictures with the boquets not matching the brides and I love the difference!!!

     

    Good luck!

    My girls are going to have the same flowers as me (calla lilies), but in different colors. I’ll incorporate their color into my bouquet though.

    This is what I want, and I’ll have just the Picasso Callas for the girls.

    My bouquet was a larger version of their bouquets, but I wanted all red flowers to avoid the red/white candycane look.

    I had 3 calla’s, 12 roses and some berries.  They had 1 calla, 9 roses and berries.

    My sister and I carried all white flowers, so her bouquet was mostly a smaller version of mine, except I had several extra flower types to make mine look more elaborate.

    My bouquet had a lot more going on in it than the BMs’ did. For me, I just wanted everything to coordinate but not necessarily match.

    Our bouquets were similiar in that we used the same pieces in each, but mine was all white while theirs had orange.  Also, mine had dried flowers while theirs only had cotton and balsa flowers.

    i think you could go either way. Just depends on the look you are going for.

    I had a small wedding, just my sister as my Maid/Matron of Honor. We pretty much had matching bouquets. It wasn’t originally what I told the florist, as I wanted mine to not have any hot pink in it, but it’s what appeared on wedding day. I thought it looked fine. Hers was wrapped in Navy and mine in Ivory. Here’s a pic

    This was my dad and step mom’s wedding a few years back, but we all had the same bouquet, ours was just smaller then my step mom’s.
