Which would you choose?

Ok, I need some feedback…I’m having fun with this ‘Which Bouquet’ post each Friday and it appears you are too…but we don’t want to get bored with it…so…let me know if we should keep doing it or if you think it’s about time to do something new!

Hope you all have a great weekend!




  1. Defiantly the purple.. LOve it with that style..

  2. Alright, we played as a group in my office, and we all came to a concensus. We all three chose bouquet #1. McCall likes the drama that it brings to the ensemble. Janet liked the contrasting color to give the dress more interest. And I was torn between one and two, but the second is too rounded for the lines of the dress.

    Oh, and Vince just walked in, so we asked him for the males’ opinion. Very interestingly, he disliked bouquet #1 the most, and he chose bouquet #3 for this dress.

  3. Jenny N says:

    I’ll go against the grain here and say #2. I just think it’s pretty and I think the anemone kind of mimics the fabric on the dress. . .a little fluttery

  4. Yea VInve, even though I don’t know who you are. I also pick #3. White petals like the dress? Check. Black ribbon accent? Check. Fiddle-heads? Check! Totally #3.

    I love this game so I vote you keep it. I won’t complain if you mix it up, though. MOB dress with which personal flowers – nosegay, pin corsage, or wrist corsage? Which bouts for this bouquet? What flowers for this venue? Etc.

    I’m choosing #1 purely because of the hydrangea.

    I love this feature, I checked in on the blog today and was hoping it would be a Which Bouquet? post!!

    I think #2 works best with the dress, and it’s kinda fun!

    #3 would be my second choice.

  7. Anonymous says:

    I think regardless of taste #3 is the best match. I am personally more partial to #1 but it does not look as coordinated with the dress.

  8. I think both #2 and #3 suit the dress… slightly leaning towards #3 more. I might just add a few casading phalaenopsis at the front of #3 to mimic the asymmetrical florets on the dress..

    N you have to continue this game, it’s so much fun! Love Never a Plain Jane’s suggestion, a new game where we get to pick out the arrangement that matches the venue best..

  9. Bouquet #2 is the perfect choice for the dress. Although I LOVE the #1 bouquet, it would go perfectly with my gown 😉

  10. Janet says:

    I’m liking bouquet #2 for that dress. A little pop of black to match the sash, and not so white that it blends in.
