I wont have mine at home but I dont think it’s a big deal.  I don’t consider my flowers part of the dress and dont think my fiances going to be like “wow, she looks nice in that dress but MAN LOOK AT THOSE FLOWERS!” 

I think you’re safe. ๐Ÿ™‚

My bouquet was probably one of the least interesting aspects about our wedding from my husband’s point of view, so I didn’t see the point of hiding it from him.

I think you are safe aswell. My Fiance is designing and getting my bouquet. As long as some of my favourite flowers are included I am happy. This is a very old and forgotten tradition in Norway.

My florist sent me a mockup of my bouquet and I showed him. He was indifferent He looks at it as another thing we are spending money on. So I think you are probably safe to show him!

Letting him see the bouquet before the wedding = 12 years bad luck.

@KristenGotMarried: Haha. That literally made me laugh out loud.

I didn’t even think about this…I don’t think it is a big deal. Just the dress, hair, and makeup should be kept a secret IMO.

I won’t have mine ahead of time but he’s seen all of my inspiration pictures and knows all of the flower choices, so I don’t think it’s a big deal for him to see it.

I did, but just because I had to prove that orange, yellow and navy was an acceptable color combination.

Fiance told me I could pretty much have free reign with color and decoration details, and when I informed him of my plan to add yellow as an accent color to my original plan of navy and orange, he was like, “Are you sure that’s not going to clash?”

Gotta love men sometimes… ๐Ÿ™‚

My fiance has already seen photos of the wedding flowers and everything else wedding related. I value his opinion on things and didn’t want him to be in the dark as to what’s going on. Also, since he and I are paying for the wedding mostly ourselves, then he probably likes to see where his money is going.

Men don’t care about flowers, only the dress.

Yes. I’ve pretty much showed him everything regarding the wedding (including some accessories) EXCEPT the dress, of course ๐Ÿ™‚

My answer is naughty. My husband saw my dress and approved it before I bought it. So yeah, he saw my bouqet. This was only because I trust his taste SO MUCH and we are overly involved in eachother’s decisions…..so I had to feel like he loved my dress before I bought it.

That said: everything looks totally different and AMAZING once you put it all together so even if he saw something—it’ll be different the day of. ๐Ÿ™‚

Yeah, he saw it. All the bouquets were made out of silk flowers, and my bff arranged all the flowers, and I did finishing touches like wrapping the handle and pinning and hot gluing as needed. Hubs was also there, but its not like it gave anything away, since the flowers were in our wedding colors

i let Darling Husband see my bouquet because it wasn’t a big deal to me. i took bridal portraits about 2 months before the wedding, so i had to have a mock up bouquet made from my florist. after the portraits were over, i put my bouquet in a vase and put it in my bedroom. Darling Husband saw it, but just commented that it was beautiful.
