I don’t think it matters, mine sure don’t match!  I think you should go with whatever sets the mood for your reception.

Good Luck!

I’m not sure what the propper ettiquette answer would be, but IMO I don’t think you have to match the Bouquets with the reception decor. Your bridesmaids and you are most likely not going to be holding your boquettes at the reception and most people are not even going to remember what they looked like(at least I wouldn’t!). i think you should go with the flowers you want and not worry about matching everything.

I don’t think it’s important for them to MATCH, per se, but I think there should be some sort of continuity.  Also, I would think you’d want flowers with a similar feel, which it sounds like these have.  Both the submerged tulips and blumebox sound like a more modern look and they both sound lovely- could you possibly do both? perhaps the submerged tulips can be your high and the blumeboxes can be your low?

I asked florists this exact question when I met with them and they both said NO! One actually said that it’s more fun when they don’t…it’s a fun surprise for your guests.

I don’t think its important that they match, just go with whatever you like!

I don’t think they have to be the same- just coordinate with each other (which it sounds like they all do- color scheme and overlapping floral types).

Flowers are gorgeous- it’s hard to go wrong!

If they’re the same $$ why don’t you have both? 

Matching doesn’t matter.

I would say that they should be within the same flower theme scheme (a la gardeny looking, or tropical etc) but they certainly don need to match. It just gets a little boring for guests eyes if everything is exactly the same.
