I’ve gone through what seems like hundreds of flower ideas, and I can’t seem to make up my mind. I LOVE brooch bouquets and really want one, but I don’t know if it’d be bling overkill if I get an all-white brooch bouquet.
At first I was considering doing an all-red with crystals/pearls brooch bouquet, but was thinking maybe the white would be more subtle and would compliment my dress rather than competing with my dress as in the red brooch bouquet case. Keep in mind if I were to go with a brooch bouquet, it would be smaller than a regular bouquet.
What do you guys think? I am considering fresh flower bouquets too but am starting to think it might be too plain against my dress…I just don’t know!
These are the styles of bouquet I’m considering…
Either one with more pearls (#1)
Or one with more crystals (#2)
Brooch bouquet with colored accents (#3) (my BM’s will be wearing red and my main wedding color is red)
The red brooch bouquet that I considered before but maybe there’s too too much going on…(#4)
In case anyone is interested, these are all on Etsy from the same seller named Noaki 🙂

I love broach bouquets, but your dress is already covered in so much bling, which by the way I love. I just think the added brooch bouquet bling may put you way over the top.

@mwitter80: Thanks, that’s what I’m fearing 🙁 I wish I could bring flowers to my dress to assure that fresh flowers would look amazing against it but…that’s not possible of course.

I voted for #3 because it’s different enough from your dress that it doesn’t look like an “extension” of it, if that makes sense. Basically, it’s different enough that it doesn’t blend in and disappear against your dress, but it’s not a harsh contrast against your dress like #4. I like #4 too, but I think it would distract from the detail of your dress.

@corals: Honestly, I would go for fresh flowers. I think they would provide the perfect contrast to your dress. The brooch bouquet would just get lost in all that fabulous dress bling.

Don’t forget that you always have the option to bling out a fresh flower bouquet as well. There are plenty of options to do this, and you could get the sparkle you want along with the lushness of fresh flowers!
These are done with silks, but they could easily be accomplished with fresh if you have a creative florist. http://ricelakeweddingpages.com/?p=548

I think the bouquets linguo42 posted may be the perfect compromise.
