Three very different bouquets…which would you choose?

Hope you have a great weekend! I can’t begin to tell you how much I appreciate you visiting and leaving your comments. I have a blast sharing the floral designs of amazing floral artists and photographers with you each day…Meet you back here on Monday!



  1. Hmm… Argh..Well…This is a tough one. Would you beleive I’m not really feeling any of these? They are all beautiful, just not for pairing with this dress. I can’t beleive there are no black-eyed anemones in your selections!

    Still, if I had to choose I think I’d pick the first one. It has the closest feel of the dress.

    I just love these posts, Amy. I check back all day to see what people have said.

  2. I think I will have to go with number three. It’s slim, like the lines of the dress, but I also like that it carries out the black and white theme. I think that the feathers add the perfect touch to mimic the delicacy of the sheer straps.

    My second choice would be bouquet number one because I like the way the shape of the anemones reflect the floral detailing at the waist.

  3. Janet says:

    Give it a black wrap, and I’d say #1. I like how the ranunculus and the anemones echo the shape of the flowers on the brides belt. I was tempted by #3 but it’s too tailored for the dress.

  4. Anonymous says:

    Number one is my choice It is very romantic like the dress with the flower sash.

  5. Anonymous says:

    Number three uptown but romantic peonies fit.

  6. Definitely number three for me. The dress has quite a lot of detail on it so I think a bouquet of just pink peonies with black and white details to echo the black sash on the dress would look good. If anything, I’d opt for something even simpler. I actually prefer bouquets 1 and 2, they are both gorgeous, but I think they have too much going on for this dress.

  7. The Fleurs NYC bouquet is just exquisite!!
