I think it’s really cute! Especially with how you described your wedding πŸ™‚

If you love it, then go for it!  I’m having a ‘butterfly tea party’ wedding, and seriously considered a bouquet like this (but ended up going with a Princess Lasertron felt flower bouquet).  If you think it might be too much, then maybe you could add a few butterflies to a more traditional bouquet.  But I think it sounds perfect for your wedding, especially when you mentioned the word whimsical.  I think the butterfly look is delightfully beautiful, and also fun!

I’m usually not a huge fan of butterflies but that is absolutely lovely!

It’s okay, but I think you’d have to do it very well to avoid it looking childish – the fact that your own initial reaction was the have the Flower Girl carry it points to that for me…

do you know of a seller or are you planning to DIY?

I like it, but I agree with @daydreamwanderer, execution is key… I think if you used really high quality faux butterflies it could look lovely. πŸ™‚ Or maybe paper ones, like they used in this SMP shoot? That would make for a more modern look, though.

I intend to do a butterfly bouquet, inspired by the same picture you found. Mine will be in memory of my mother, who died five years ago. She used to really love butterflies, and I think the bouquet is a nice way to honor her.

I think its really pretty – if you like it and it goes with the feel of your wedding, go for it.  I had 2 white butterflies put into my bouquet to honor my Nana and Papa.  It was kinda nice because I knew they were there and so did some other people but it was like a little secret πŸ™‚

I’m not sure I like it for a bridal bouquet.  (Although the nice thing is that it wouldn’t die, like flowers.)  I do think it would be wonderful for a Flower Girl. 

And I like naangel55’s idea.  I could even see one or two butterflies sticking out of the bouquet, so that they are noticeable.  But I don’t know about a whole bouquet.

I think the question is,  do you love it more than you love a flower bouquet.  It’s super cute, but when it’s one or the other, and means giving up something else, are you still wanting it?

It looks very pretty but you have to make sure it incorporates with the wedding theme…

I think it is a little too much.  To me, it would look much better to have a floral bouquet and then randomly put about 5 of the butterflies in it.  That would be really pretty!

I think this idea is great, but I agree with the above posters that how it looks will depend on the type of butterflies you use.  Personally, I like the look of the paper ones the best (v. plastic or nylon).
