I’m dithering over roses for my bouquet. I’m definitely having red roses with chillies but when I was talking to my florist she suggested Black Baccara as a darker rose, which would match the bridesmaids. The bridesmaids were going to have Avalanche roses but if I had the Black Baccara then I’d give them Grand Prix.
I always wanted classic red roses, but the Black Baccara are just so gorgeous!
Here’s my dress:
No picture of the bridesmaid dresses but here’s the colour they’re in.
Now I’m dithering a little between two combinations of roses for our bouquets.
Freedom Roses for me:
and Sahara roses for the bridesmaids:
Or option two:
Black Baccara roses for me:
and Freedom for the bridesmaids:
I suppose a third option would be Black Baccara for me and Sahara for the bridesmaids…
What do you think?

I really like the idea of that super dramatic dark bouquet for you, and lighter for your BMs.

I forsure like your bridesmaids with lighter gold… I think it would pop really well on their dresses. I voted for Freedom roses for you but would it be possible to have both of the reds in your bouquet? For a middle ground?
Btw, I adore your dress!

I agree with the other bees. I love the darker roses with your dress! And the lighter ones for the BMs. It’s the contrast. It will really make everything pop!

@aardvark: I’m having bright red chillies either as a collar or almost as the bear-grass is in the Black Baccara picture (diving in and out of the roses), so both reds would be a bit much, I think.
