My main flower is blue dendrobium orchids.
My bouquet is going to be ALL orchids like this –
but I can’t figure out what to get for my girls. I definitely want theirs to have SOME orchids, but other flowers too. What do you think looks best?
White roses –
or lilies which would look similar to this arrangement –

I prefer the one with the roses, but I would get that one for myself and have the girls carry the other one.

I think the hydrangea and the orchids would flow nicely together and they have similar colors in hydrangea. I had the dendrobium orchids in my bouquet and they were gorgeous!!!

The roses are pretty. They go well together.

I picked the lilies, but they all look great. For the hydrangea one, have you considered incorporating purple/blue hydrangeas?

I say roses, but I used roses so that could be why! It’s really hard to pick though, I think they all look really beautiful! I think roses are more traditional, hydrangeas are more garden, and lillies are more beach-y. IMO.

i have the same flowers toO!! is your’s sprayed? the lady told me they dont come like that naturally!
mines is not all orchids though, it will have a mix of gardenia, bit of roses, white orchids, and stephanotis. and my Bridesmaid or Best Man will have those orchids, bit of ivory roses and cymbidium

@Lindsay05: Thanks for posting that – you summed it up really well! I think I’ll stay away from the lillies as my wedding is definetly more classic, traditional and elegant.
My other option would be for me to carry an all white orchid bouquet and then the girls carry smaller all blue orchid bouquets?

I voted for the roses, but I LOVE hydrangea. The only problem wih having hydrangea in bouquets though is they tend to wilt if not kept in water. GL!
