    We had a few inspiration pictures, but we couldn’t find just one that had everything we wanted.  We wanted deep purples and blues (with a little white in my bouquet but a lot of color), but my girls were wearing black dresses so we needed lighter colors too.  Our florist took what we wanted and what would work with the black.  She showed us samples which really helped.  We LOVED our flowers on our wedding day.  We got our colors and they really popped against the black.

    Here is my inspiration picture. I asked for no cascading bouquet and I just wanted white day lilies not the pink liles because I was using bright coral not hot pink.

     

     

    And here is my actual bouquet:

    I was very happy with how it turned out! The pictures just don’t do the colors justice. I had to meet with my florist very frequently, though, to ensure I was getting the right colors, etc. Overall though it couldn’t have turned out better.

    @k8:  I literally had the same inspiration picture! The colors aren’t exactly what I wanted, but I beyond didn’t care about flowers the day of the wedding, I was that person who was meticulous in planning and then was able to say f*** it and just enjoy everything the day of, lol

    Inspiration (same as k8)

    Inspiration (from an arrangement/centrepiece I think)

    I initially wanted it just like this, only sparse purple filler but mine was a little different.. and I loved it!!

    I never found a photo of a bouquet where I was like, that’s the one! So I worked with my florist to come up with my bouquet. I told her what flowers I wanted in it (initially wanted to include anemones which are one of my favs, but thought the black center might take away), and trusted her to make me a beautiful bouquet that was fluffy and romantic. It had more white than I hoped, but I loved it still. I think just the nature of bouquets and flowers, it’s not all the florists fault when it isn’t an exact match.

    I loved how mine turned out. I asked for more orange because it’s hubby’s favorite color.
