I’ve been considering having myself carry a coloured bouquet to match my shoes and have my girls carry white bouquets. I mentioned this to a florist today and she seemed SHOCKED that I would want to have mismatched bouquets. I don’t think I’ll be going with this florist anyway as our personalities did not click, but she’s got me shaken on my plans.
The girls will be wearing purple, and the guys in tan suits.

Here’s an idea of what I’m thinking style wise, but I would use the same flowers just different colours.

Your florist must be way behind on the trends! I think this will look gorgeous, I love this look.

I love when the BMs bouquets don’t match their dress. The contrast looks amazing in pictures. Also love colored bouquets for brides instead of white. I am a tad biased though since I will have fuchsia bouquet and my BMs will have orange which I think will look awesome with their fuchsia dresses. I say find a new florist who actually listens to you and go for it!

I’m carrying a mish-mash of different flowers (dahlias, protea, coxcomb) and dried grasses (bunny tails, fiddlehead ferns, wheat, hypericum berries) that range from dark red to orange while the dried grasses will be browns and wheat colored.
My girls are wearing black dresses and carrying red sunflowers and wheat.
Our moms/grandmas will have viking poms and coneflower pods.
Groom will have craspedia, fiddlehead ferns and wheat.
Other males will have hypericum berries and wheat.
I told my florist that I wanted my bouquet to be out there and very rustic. She completely supported me and was very excited that she got to be creative with my bouquet. Don’t let someone who doesn’t share your vision make you think your idea is not a good one. Find a florist who will help you make it work. GL

My girls are wearing plum and I am wearing ivory. They will be carrying white hydrangeas and I will be carrying plum calla lillies. I love the contrasting color look AND the monochromatic look. My florist was all for it!
