I think you need about twice that amount, I would think that 12 would make a nice bridesmaid bouquet.

Depends on the size of the roses, but I would think atleast 18 or 24 stems would make a good sized bridal bouquet

I also think 12 sounds more like a bridesmaid bouquet, that is a little small. A dozen and a half-two dozen would be much fuller, but it depends on the size of the blooms. It definitely depends on what your preference is…maybe find out if you can see and hold some examples and see what you like best! I am also going to do all roses 🙂

I think 12 is a little small, maybe it would be ok if they have really big blooms on them. 

I am doing my own flowers for my wedding and practiced making a DIY rose bouquet. I used between 35-40 roses, it was a little heavy, and I could probably go with a few less, but definitely would need more than 12.  Here is a pic of my practice bouquet to get an idea:

I have silk rose bouquets for my 4 girlies, and there are 12 roses in them and they are perfect size for a bridesmaid…… but for a bride i would have thought more like 20 would look better. unless of course you are adding gypsophilia , then you could get away with just 12……

I think 12 roses are definately not enough. My bouquet had about 25 roses and it still looked quite small.

I think it really depends on the size of the roses (for example, avalanche roses can be quite big) and how big you are as well. If you’re petite, big bouquets would look silly. I’d advise you to ask your florist to make a mockup or at least show you the roses they have in mind 🙂 Good luck!

P.S. I’m having 6 avalanche roses and blue hydrangeas (which works out 50:50 in terms of roses : hydrangeas ratio) and the size is perfect for me.

I think that sounds small. My florist asked for my height and explained that he determines the size of the boquet by the size of the bride. I ordered all roses in the form of the Weddingbee bride logo (more ball like) and had about 60 large roses. It was significant in size and just what Iw anted.

Check what kind of roses it is, as that will make a BIG difference in the final size of it.  Ask if they have a wedding coming up with the same where you could stop at the shop at see it, or ask for a free mockup since you’re not convinced you’ll be happy with it. 

Good luck!

I had 3 dozen roses in my bouquet but they were full, open roses. I think it was the perfect size for me!

I’m having 18 in my bouquet. I don’t want the bouquet to be the focal point – sure it’s nice but I don’t need a big honking thing (apparently I’m getting cabbage roses, which would probably add to the size?)

I wanted the big red ball like the Weddingbee on the top of the page and they said it would be between 24 and 36.
