    If your Fiance won’t wear pink, I would definitely ask her to take the pink flower out. It would even be fine with just the one large ivory rose! I also agree with your concerns with your bouquet.  It does look a little stripe-y and I’m not a fan of the black accent on the handle.  I think a black bow would look much nicer (like you described).  Don’t feel bad about requesting changes! That’s why she sent you pictures to make sure it is what you want and why you are paying someone to do it!

    What about wrapping the stem in black lace?

    Why is the ribbon stark white if you’re more ivory!?

    @Edelweiss:  I’m voting on removing the bright white.  It’s cheapens the look.  The mini garter is strange too.

    I think he needs a color other than ivory in the bout.

    I think the black thing looks a bit silly, but I love the rest of it.

    If you want some pink on his bout, maybe just a small pink ribbon. But it also would like nice and clean without any pink

    I’m a little critical, due to working as a florist for sometime. I personally thinks the bout needs the pink flower removed, or another flower added, 2 flowers look silly, it should be either 1 or 3. Maybe one bigger flower and 2 smaller ones, the greenery should also be a little more pronounced without it being over powering. Maybe add a little something to it liike some gypsophila (babys breath) or waxflower for a little texture. I’d loose the whhite ribbon, it kind of makes it look cheap. The black decoration on the handle of your bouquet is in a silly spot, thats where you’d be holding it. Near the top would be a lot better. I also think the flowers need rearranging, it looks a little too stripey. The shape of your bouquet is beautiful so are the colours!

    Sorry for being critical….. hope i didn’t offend you :/

    If your man doesn’t want pink, why force it? I would not add pink ribbon or anything. It’s his wedding too and he doesn’t want pink, I would respect that… I would ask to have the bout’s stem all black though so it matches his suit and doesn’t show through the pocket if it’s taller.

    As for the stem in your bouquet, why is it so white? There is no white in your colors, and it will look really weird against an ivory dress, she should be using ivory for the stem…

    What’s the black thing for? It does look like a garter doesn’t it? LOL

    I’d nix the pink flower in the groom’s bout.  My fiance won’t wear pink either, haha.  He’s going to get a cream colored rose.  Nice and simple.  

    I think your bouquet would look pretty wrapped in lace.  I, personally, am not crazy about the black on your bouquet wrap.  It seems very out of place to me
