Why are your BMs flowers different than your own? you can use the same just make a smaller bunch.
I like the rose bout with the metal.
Make sure your mom etc what a corsage and what kind. Mine wanted nothing, some want the pin on kind etc.

It looks like you have most of the flowers picked out… it looks like you’re asking what color the BM’s flowers should be, and whether the dads and Groomsmen should have flowers.
I say white for the BMs, as shown in your pic. And the dads and groomsmen often get boutonnieres, but there’s no rule that they have to! I would say white for them too, to kind of unify your theme. Purple for you and the groom, white for everyone else.

My bouquet was in the red/burgundy range! The roses in the very first picture are called black magic roses, they are GORGEOUS. I had them and karma chocolate dahlias in my bouquet with fiddle fern fronds. Here’s a pic, the colors in person were much deeper. Im not quite sure how the pictures turned out so bright.
My girls carried black magic roses as well, but we did greenery instead of the black feathers. The florist did the loops of bear grass over the top of them like in your picture.
As for price, my bouquet was $100 and the girls were in the $50-60 range, I believe.

First of all, I think the flowers you’ve picked are amazing.
Side note, I think your bouquet should be a little bigger, so it’s not dwarfed my your beautiful and quite big dress.
1) The bridesmaid bouquet is perfect. Except I would add a few more green in it. – go for quite a mordern one to match their black dress
2) Groom: I don’t really like the flower – the style is cool. But I’m worried whether the flower’s too dark to stand out against a black suit. – If it is slightly dark, you can always add a few bright green leaves or something to balance it out.
3) Dad should something similar to yours, but diffeent to the grooms – possibly more elaborate, or with a hint of the bridesmaids flower
4) Bridesman: I think his should match the bridesmaid’s bouquet – afterall, they are ‘your’ attendants – white will go fine with that colour
5) mum and grandma: perfect.
Hope this is helpful 🙂

My girls are going to have bouquets that are like a smaller version of mine. Same colors. Just a little variation. Could you do something like that? I’m doing pink Dahlias and garden rosees with hints of red. But it looks like the Bridesmaid or Best Man pic is Hydrangeas, right? Are you set on those? i don’t think they come in burgundy. I know they come in a bunch of shades of white, pink, blue. If you have to get the Hydrangeas, I think your best bet would be white. And then you can incorporate the ribbon with silver or burgundy. Or you could do a wrap with feathers or something fun like that to bring in your colors. Feathers are pretty inexpensive I think.
The dad’s are supposed to have something slightly different, but it’s your wedding. You dont have to. Same things witht the ties, or so I was told by our suit guy. The grooms should be different as well. But you can add little things to make it different. It doesn’t have to be different flowers or anything like that. I’m going to put a few small brass bee charms throughout my bouquet and I might put one in the grooms boutonniere to make his different than the rest.
You can have your brides man have the same color as the bridesmaids and that would be fine. So, if you did white hydrangeas, he can have a little boutonniere of white hydrangeas. I’ve been looking at non-floral boutonniere’s on Etsy, also. If you are open to any non-traditional stuff, they have some pretty awesome ones worth checking out.

@zippylef: I was typing out my response and had mentioned feathers and just saw your pics. Love the feathers in your bouquet. Fabulous! I’ve been loving on the feathers in pics I’ve seen recently. So fun!
