npilon : The flowers are all very pretty, and the colors look great together. 

To get the look for the second bouquet inspiration, you are going to have to trim away a lot of greenery. Which isn’t a big deal, but if you want that clean look with your centerpieces as well… It’s a big job. So make sure you allot enough time (and helpers) for that. Trimming was not something I had planned for when ordering my flowers. It took me 8 hours the day before the wedding to trim and dethorn. I ordered 750 stems, more than half were roses, which is what took me so long.

Really cute spring colors!! I suggest doing a bouquet similar to the first one and maybe have bridesmaids with the daisies only. I think some color would look better for the bride’s bouquet. I arranged my own flowers for my wedding too, and it was a lot of fun but a pain cutting the wires since I used silk flowers. I’m sure your bouquet will be beautiful. Good luck!

ellsiepig :  I love the idea with the colors! I think it would look great!

I am also using Fiftyflowers for the garden rose sample pack! It is such a great way to get variety and will look beautiful with everything.
