I wanted to get your opinions on which bouquet for me! Our colors are red and aqua with some accents of gold. The ribbon will be aqua wiht maybe some gold ribbon trim. I plan on carrying an all red bouquet and the bridesmaids will be carrying all white bouquets (roses, much like the one below). I originally thought I wanted just a red rose bouquet like the first one below (but more full) but I stumbled upon the picture of a bouquet with red roses and gerber daises which I alos love. Which one do you all prefer?
I love the simplicity and the bold contrast of the first bouquet with the aqua ribbon, and that’s the one I first fell in love with, but I also am wondering if adding another flower type will add some visual interest. Any opinions are appreciated!
Bouquet #1 but will be more full:
Bouquet #2: Roses and gerber daisies

I voted for #2, but it’s definitely a tad more casual than the first one. We have the same colors, but I’m using light blue instead of aqua. My bouquet will be all red roses and gerbers, with a couple of pale blue butterflies.

I like the second one because it is fuller. If the first one was fuller, I would like that one better 🙂

What’s the formality/theme of your wedding? They are both pretty, but the second one is more casual and a bit more rustic with the berry-looking things.

I am huge fan of gerber daisies, so I voted for #2. But I do agree that the all-rose bouquet is more traditional/formal, the second one is more casual/modern, so to some degree it depends on the look you’re going for. LOVE the combination of red and aqua, by the way. 🙂

I love number two with the hypericum berries. The roses in the 2nd photo look like California roses in comparison to photo #1 where they look like Ecuadorians w/waxflower. Have you thought about red cabbage roses? it’s going to be June after all! Such a great time for flowers! 🙂
ps i love red and aqua together – great choice!

I like the second one – I think it has a lot more visual interest.
Both are beautiful though so you certainly can’t go wrong either way.

@MrsLongcoatPeacoat: Great choice in colors! I’m sure it will look beautiful! Do you have any inspiration pictures of that combination?
@noritake22: If I were to use the first bouquet would definitely be fuller!
@blg529: Hmmm good point! I think our wedding is a little more on the formal side, but not so incredibly formal that I probably couldn’t use gerber daisies, but our wedding isn’t really rustic.
@NotYourTypicalBride: Thank you! We’re a fan of the color combination as well. I love how happy gerber daisies are, but we may want something more formal.
Decisions decisions! How do you all make decisions when there are so many beautiful inspirations out there? What do you think of bouquet #2 without berries?

@sfchick: Hmm I might have to look up red cabbage roses! Thanks for the suggestion!
@Mrs.KMM: That’s what I was thinking too! Plus the bridesmaids will be carrying an all rose bouquet. It’s so hard to make decisions when all bouquets are beautiful!

I think that a large full bouquet of red roses is best, esp in a formal wedding. It will look stunnig with aqua ribbon on bottom. The #2 photo above looks better only b/c the #1 is smaller. Unless you are IN LOVE w the gerberas or they are used in other places I would stick to the classic and pure large bouquet of roses. (I love gerberas and had them in our wedding, but have flower regret wishing I stuck to the more formal). Best of luck!

@shushu1208: I found this one here:
… and a while ago, I did cupcakes for a wedding with this color scheme. It was gorgeous and I fell in love with it then. I’ll be incorporating cherry blossoms too, since my wedding will be during cherry blossom season in VA.
What inspirations are you using?
