Just a random question 🙂
Our bouquets were going to be the same as centerpieces, then the store no longer has enough of the bouquets to fill my needs for everything. We are getting silk flowers. So, I decided to buy individual stems of gerbera daisies and make simple centerpieces with about 6 per vase. As it turns out, I can make a better statement on less $$ with them also because for one they are larger and two, slightly cheaper. Our bouquets will not match these what so ever. In fact, my bridesmaids bouquets will also be different than mine, but in the same color tones. In the beginning they were all going to match, then I got theirs in and decided I wanted something more ‘artistic’ looking, and also wanted real touch or natural touch flowers for mine because it will look better for photos and a keepsake afterwards.
Am I creating a huge mess and something that people will be like, “ew”?

Ours didn’t! My bridesmaid’s bouquets were white daisies and lilacs, my bouquet was white daisies, white hydrangea, lavender stock, and yellow roses. The centerpieces were yellow daisies, lavender stock, and some really pretty greenery I forgot the name of.
They shared a color scheme, but with different flowers.

Consideirng I don’t think the bouquets will be held during the ceremony, so I think there’s nothing wrong with having them different! 🙂
I think the idea of color consistancy is a nice one, but honestly, I think if they all look pretty to you, they will be just fine, however they look!

My bridesmaids boquets will be close to the centerpieces, mine won’t be at ALL like it. I don’t think you have to do anything, if you want them to match, maybe you can DIY the ones that are missing, if you don’t care if they match, it isn’t a big deal. Make the colors compatible, and that’s all you need.

Thank you all =:) I’ve decided to change all flowers to gerberas. Not because I was worried about them not matching- I’ve always said I’d have gerberas at my wedding.. and they are easier/cheaper to do what we want =:)
