Which would you choose?

Have a great weekend and I’ll meet you back here next week with more flowers!




  1. I think I would go with bouquet number 3. Number 1 is gorgeous, but the shape of 3 seems to pair better with the dress.

  2. Botanique says:

    Hmmm, tough choice! I love the airy quality of the first two bouquets, and the simplicity of the single-flower type. I also love Holly’s beautiful bouquet- so romantic. I think I would go with the Astilbe bouquet for this dress- it is simple, elegant, airy, beautiful, wouldn’t blend into the dress like the Baby’s breath, but would be a subtle highlight and wouldn’t overpower it.

  3. bloom boxx says:

    I adore astilbe. If this dress were off-white, or perhaps was more of an “antique lace”, I’d go with the astilble. But the dress is such a pure white, I would have to choose bouquet #3 – which is stunning – to give some color contrast to the stark white.
