    I don’t think all white bouquets are “boring” I just don’t think they photograph well next to dresses.

    Gorgeous dress.  My colours were green/gray/white and I carried a bouquet of baby’s breath.  I thought it looked nice.  You could always add some greenery around the bottom so the flowers don’t blend in too much.

    I think either way works.  I’ve seen amazing white/ivory bouquets, and equally amazing colorful ones.  It’s just a matter of preference really.

    It’s totally up to you – if you like the idea of a colored bouquet, it would really pop against all the neutral tones. If you like the idea of an all-white bouquet, it will look lovely and elegant.  Really, you can’t go wrong. 🙂

    @Melini: Thanks!  I was a bit hesitant for the same reason as you and I was happy with how it turned out.

    I don’t think all white bridal bouquets are bland at all.  It’s a great opportunity to use different textures and make them really stand out.  I love the look of a bride with an all white or ivory bouquet when her BM’s have colorful bouquets.

    I think all white could be beautiful, just make sure it has texture! rock it!  I don’t think adding color would be bad either, you are the bride and it would be a nice pop of color against the bridal party.

    I don’t know if you have thought about it, but putting small diamond accents, or silver and black wire accents between the calla lilies would add a little something extra to it.  Your florist should know something about how to add wire and diamond accents.  I am a florist and we add accents all the time.

    I plan on having an all white cascading bouquet with some greenery and filler plants. I love the look. But my BM’s will probably have all white with some white feathers, and diamond accents, as the florist above suggested.
