I think if you are tall, it could work; however, if you are short like me, I don’t think it would.

I am only 5′ 1/2″, so I a long stemmed bouquet would make me look like a squashed marshmallow. I think, for you and wearing heals, it would work.

I prefer shorter clustered calla lily bouquets- it looks very high end- I’m sure you could achieve the look with 10-15 flowers. But! If you love tall go for it!

Well all I can say is, it’s YOUR day and you should feel like a queen!  I still remember the feel of the long stem roses from when I won our local pageant..It feels very glamorous to carry this type of bouquet.  Seriously it does!  You remember how it feels in your arms, or that special moment when somebody gave you a large, long stemmed bouquet of roses!

   And the bouquet IS glam.. but there has to be a way to “wedding” it right?

Now here’s a real-world long stem wedding bouquet to give you the same glam feeling!

I love the natural look of this long stem bouquet!

I used to work in floral design and I have worked with callas a bunch. The only real difference between the two bouquets you attached is the type of calla lillies. The short stemmed one is made with mini callas, thats why it looks like you need so many more. You can use the large, standard callas to make the small bouquet. Just trim the stems. You are petite so it will look fine. 🙂 For the boutioneers, I would suggest mini callas, using one per boutioneer. Good luck!

I plan on orange callas too. I think short looks better, with a fuller bouquet. Like the one in my photo to the right.

Hobby Lobby has mini callas (i think in orange) in the wedding section! 1.75 a head for standard silk callas is really good!

I love long stemmed boquets! I think they are dramatic and gorgeous. If it works better for your budget, why not?
