Beth7210 :  This is essentially what my bouquet was (with real roses) and I think it was simple and elegant. But I agree with the PP that mentioned accent flowers (maybe incorporate your wedding colors or something the complements them) or gems of sorts. Here’s my boquet for reference.

Beth7210 :  add some greenery like eucalytpus and maybe try baby’s breath too.

Beth7210 :  You could wrap the stems of your bouquets in ribbon matching your wedding colors, and add greenery to the edges of the bouquet.

Beth7210 :  YouTube has videos for putting together bouquets. There’s probably one for making a bouquet like ladyvictoria’s.

ETA: the bouquet jewelry could be attached to the ribbons. Kind of like a peek-a-boo sparkle; sometimes you see it, sometimes you don’t.

Beth7210 :  Thank you! It sounds like you got a few good suggestions already. If you’re not opposed to breaking away from something overly matchy, you could choose an accent color. I think that navy and gray are neutral enough that you could get away with adding just about any color flower into your bouquet.

Our colors were navy, gray, silver, and cream. My bouquet had white roses, dusty Miller (furry grayish foliage), white anemones with blue-black centers, and blue thistle for some extra texture and dabs of color. I don’t have a picture of my flowers handy but they were so pretty!

I think it’s missing greenery. 🙂

 

This is the one I made using fake flowers and greenery, just so you have an idea:0A2EFD42-948A-4A39-9AC2-8CEA3C51E99F

I had a plain white bouquet and my florist added some gray and green accents plus mini crystal brooches to make it pop a bit.
