Which would you choose?

Have a great weekend!



  1. Bouquet #1 for me. The other two bouquets just feel a little too lighthearted for the dress.

  2. Why has this gotten so hard lately? I’m torn between 1 and 2! They both have amazing color, texture, and handle treatments.

  3. Anonymous says:

    Bouquet #1 is perfect for this dress!

  4. These are all stunning bouquets, but I agree that #1 has the flair and drama the black dress calls for. I love those dark callas with the bright pink!

  5. Amanda Mae says:

    #1. I think it would stand out beautifully against that dress.

  6. Have to agree that #1 is it. Katie had the right words: “flair and drama”. It’s beautiful.

  7. This is a tough choice! All three are really beautiful!

    In this case, I think it depends on the personality of the lady wearing the dress: #1 if she is going for chic, drama, bold; #2 if she wants something softer (the color palette would blend more); #3 if she is really fun, and loves those poppies as much as I do!

  8. Anonymous says:

    I’m favoring #2 because it would really stand out with elegant dress color. Also, the dress is so minimal and dark, the lightness of the bouquet softens it just a little.

  9. Janet says:

    Gosh, this is a tough one – all three would work. #1 is the obvious choice, but I think #2 and #3 would really stand out with that dress as a backdrop.
