How big are your bouquets? (Inches in diameter).
How much smaller are your bridesmaids’ than yours?
The lady making my bouquet (which is 10 inches around) suggests making my bridesmaids’ 8 inches in diameter. But is that too large for bridesmaid bouquets?
Some side by side pictures for comparison will help!

@MizzPhiladelphia1986: I was a bridesmaid last year and my bouquet was nearly the same size as the bride’s (which was pretty hefty). It was absolutely beautiful, but I wish it had been smaller because it was so heavy!

I don’t think that 8 inch bouquets for the bridesmaids are too big at all… that is about the size that my girl’s bouquet are going to be. My bouquet will be about 10-11 inches in diameter.
It all just comes down to what you personally like best. 🙂

I think I had a 12″ (approx.) bouquet and 9″ for my moh.
Here they are together:
And another pic:
I could have gone bigger but this was a great price and I felt good proportions for me being a plus bride.

Before this post, I had never thought about it, and I’m skyping with my florist this week. I’ll be sure to ask. Or maybe she will ask me?
Putting it on the list.
I like a slighty smaller bouquet for the girls, just FYI.

I love this page on wedideas.com to compare bouquet sizes: http://www.wedideas.com/Wedding_Bouquet_Size_Choose_Yours_s/37.htm
I’m making my bridesmaids bouquets with 9 roses, and mine with about 20. So it’ll be 8″ vs 12″, mine will be considerably larger =)
