The majority of you chose the bright fun bouquet last week to go with the red dress…I loved the comment from Alicia at Bella Fiori…she said, “if we are going with color let’s go all the way!”

Today, I tried to give you some soothing choices after the color jolt last week! Let me know what you think…which would you choose? Why?

Hope you have a fantastic weekend…especially Janice who will be visiting the Festival of Chocolate (yes, I’m  jealous) and Von who will be skiing in Korea! Meet you back here on Monday with more flowers…



  1. I pick #1. I love the colors, especially the ribbon. Plus the full top and ribbon streamers are an inverted nod to the shape of the dress.

  2. Jenny N says:

    they are all so pretty, but two is my favorite. So ladylike.

  3. Janet says:

    I like #1 – just the right amount of color to accent such a sweet dress.

  4. Liz says:

    I love the texture and soft colors of the flowers in #3, but bouquet #1 is just SO femenine and pretty – I’m gonna have to go with #1!

  5. Mimi says:

    I like the first two bouquets, but I believe bouquet #2 suits the dress best. It mimics the lightness and delicacy of the dress.

  6. alicia.. says:

    Toss up between the first two, I keep changing my mind. Maybe because they are my favorite flowers??
    Ok, #1. I like the subtle hint of color.

  7. Love love love bouquet #1 and think it’s perfect for the dress, both are classy, feminine and structured. I personally don’t like an all white bouquet against white wedding dress and whilst I also love no. 3, I see it with a more laid back, floaty dress.

    PS. Crossing my fingers that there will be wifi at the resort I am staying at, otherwise I will have major withdrawal syndrome from not being able to ‘floral surf’!! Hope your have a brilliant wkend too!!

    #2 for sure.

  9. Teresa says:

    Bouquet #1 gets my vote. The color is soft and the silvery-gray ribbon is so chic. I think #2 would fight with the lace on the top of the dress. The spikey flowers in #3 are a bit strong for the delicateness of the dress.
