    my posy is rose size 30 and my BM’s are 25. I wanted something small as I am only tiny.

    I think either choice would work fine, but me I am going to have a bigger bouquet than them because I want to see that bit of difference in the photographs.

    Technically it should be larger (or at least different), but do whatever you want! πŸ™‚

    I voted for a larger bridal bouquet but if you decide to have a different flowers from the bridesmaid you can go the same size but you will really need to make the bridal one stand out.

    Technically the bride’s should be bigger than the bridal pary, but if they are different colors (Bride all pink, white and blush, bridal party only blush) they could be the same size!

    This is what my flowers are going to look like (well the texture and colors will have different flowers and grasses in mine)

    This is what my Bridesmaid or Best Man flowers will look like (again same colors and textures but different blooms)

    My bouquet will be bigger and different (lots of mixture of blooms and dried grasses) while my Bridesmaid or Best Man will have a smaller bouquet with a few of the same blooms I have in mine but no dried grasses.

    Something to take into consideration with the photography…though absolutely beautiful, all-white bouquets have a tendency to get lost against the backdrop of your dress. When you look at those gorgeous online photos of white bouquets, they are always photographed against a colorful backdrop. Think about what it may look like against your dress (white against white) before making your final decision! πŸ™‚

    I’m getting petite bouquets for both myself and my sister (Maid on Honor, no other attendants). Same color for both.  The cheaper the better.   Don’t want some big honking bouquet, and I think everyone will know I’m the bride!
