I did an all white bouquet but I think go what you want. I was told by my florist the opposite, get color so the flowers don’t blend in but I have always wanted all white. I think both look great!

I love colorful bouquets. So that’s what I chose (and the bridesmaids wore navy). My sister had an all white bouquet. Both are beautiful, so it’s a matter of what you love. πŸ™‚

honestly i think coral and white in the same bouquet would be so pretty together.

i loooove love how an all white bouquet looks with the white dress…but I think if all of the bouquets mimic eachother or are similar, it looks great too πŸ™‚ I have never in my life paid more attention to a bouquet than the bride…I can promise you that πŸ˜‰

I can’t get down with the all white… just not for me. I’m going for this instead

love the richness… and the girl in the pic is wearing my dress, sash and all. I think it’s a sign

It could go either way, no right or wrong answer. Don’t let anyone convince you of something you don’t like in the end. Do what you want! It is really up to you!

I also think a coral and white bouquet would look so incredibly gorgeous!

Good luck! πŸ™‚

Like the OP, my florist told me the same thing about color bouquets distracting from the white of the dress.  My wedding colors were navy and cream.  I think ALL bouquets are pretty, though fake flowers aren’t necessarily my favorite.  


My bouquet was cream roses, white carnations and juniper tied with a blue snowflake patterned ribbon – identical to the one I used in our invitations. My MOH and bridesmaids had bouquets of a white hydrangea, carnations and juniper.   The juniper was nice for a winter wedding plus it added a little blue and was an inside joke since my husband’s favorite alcoholic drink has gin in it.  I loved it!

I had a red bouquet and my BMs had white ones to contrast their red dresses. I think white flowers can get lost in a white dress.

You could do mostly-white with a little bit of pale corals thrown in, maybe? That’s how I’m doing mine. I wanted a white bouquet but also love our colors (peachy pinks and greens), so I’m going for mostly-white with very a few pale peachy pinks and greens mixed in.

you could even do a coral bouquet with some white – and have bridesmaids with all white!

My BMs were in Navy and had colored boquets. I had a white boquet. I really loved the way they all looked together:

And my boquet:

Pick what you like best- I think your florist is nuts…who ever heard of flowers upstaging a bride? πŸ™‚
