    I voted maybe.  If he has an interest in wedding planning and likes that sort of thing, or you just really want him to be involved, then I don’t know of any superstition or anything that says he shouldn’t.  That said, most men don’t care to agonize over the details of a bridal bouquet, so if he doesn’t care, and that doesn’t bother you… keep it to yourself.

    @AlbertaBride:  I didn’t vote because… well… it doesn’t matter to me I guess! My Fiance has no interest in what flowers I am carrying, but I will run them by him anyways. 99% sure he won’t even remember what they look like by the wedding date!

    I voted maybe because to me it doesn’t really matter. My Fiance is very involved in all of the wedding planning so he will most likely see mine!

    I don’t think my FH would care one way or another and neither would I.

    I don’t think it matters either way, it’s not that he should see it, but he can if he wants – but he doesn;t really care about flowers so I don’t know if he would.

    Boyfriend or Best Friend has been very interested in the planning for us. I mean if it came down to a disagreement he would always say “if you’re happy I’m happy” unless it was something he REALLY thought was necessary.

    So when I showed him the bouquet I was thinking of he didn’t think the flowers were arranged nicely and I found a picture of a different arrangement (subbed one of the flowers) and he loves it. So I mean, technically he doesn’t know for sure I’m using that one but he had a hand in picking it.

    It’s been the same with all the other things that I want to surprise him with. We browsed wedding dresses online and I got a lot of “wtf is that” and “terrible”‘s! So I learned kind of what he liked and didn’t like, we found one we both liked and I favorited it. Does it mean that’s the exact dress I’ll wear? No but it could be. That way there’s an element of surprise.

    Fiance was there when we decided on flowers. But, he probably doesn’t know what any of them are, anyway. Either way, though, it didn’t matter to me.

    Darling Husband wouldn’t have cared if I carried flowers at all. The only way he’d care is if we were paying for them, but my parents paid for the flowers.

    I didn’t vote, because I would say, “who cares.” Sure, if he wants to, (But what groom cares?) but not if the bride doesn’t want him to.

    I voted “maybe” but my real answer would be “who cares”…  He wouldn’t care to know, I wouldn’t care if he did know.  It’s an accessory for the bride, I didn’t get his input on my shoes or my jewelry, and so I don’t see why the bouquet would be any different.

    I said maybe because only if one of you cares. I didnt care. 

    EDIT: I dragged him to one flower appt (we only had two) to help determing bouts, which I ended up making anyways. So he def knew what I was going for.

    I’m not sure if this is strictly in my family or if it’s an Icelandic tradition, but my father chose my mothers bouquet and my Brother-In-Law picked wildflowers for my sisters bouquet.

    I don’t really think it matters so I voted “Maybe” Flowers were something that Fiance and I chose together so while he doesn’t know exactly what it will look like, he knows the color and type of flowers. That being said, I don’t know exactly what it will look like either haha

    Hold the presses.  I’m so confused.  Doesn’t the groom buy the brides bouquet?  That’s what we’re planning so….HELL YES! I think he should know EXACTLY what I’ve picked out!
