    Amyyyyy, she whined, you’ve done it again! I am torn between 1 and 3. One, with its frosty shades, says “Ice Princess” like the crystal beading on the dress but three is made of dark, decadent, crystal-studded callas. Sigh. I pick both. The girl who wears this dress will just have to have two weddings.

    #2 simply gorgeous, I love #1 also but to much! I visit your blog every day. I am a oil painter and your images color and texture inspire me.

    I like no. 1 and 2 bouquets, but I think they are sweet and girlie, but I feel that the dress is diva’ish (maybe cuz of the model, lol). So I say no. 3 matches the dress the best.

    Bouquet #3. I love the dark callas against the color and details of the dress, and I like that the shape of the calla reflects the neckline of the gown. This would be one bling*bling wedding!

    when I first saw the dress, I thought, “Oh, I hope dark red is an option.” So I have to say 3. It seems a great contrast to that almost silver looking dress.

    #1 because it brings some colour so it doesnt look boring but it doesnt overpower the beauty of the dress. I think #2 would be abit boring and would just ‘dissapear’ into the background of the dress!

    I think #’s 2 or 3 go with the dress the best, but I love #1 so much I’m absolutely blinded- I’d personally choose #1 in a heartbeat!
