Which bouquet do you like better?

by DIY wedding planner on December 12, 2011

Messy wildflowers like this http://www.projectwedding.com/wedding-ideas/diy-how-to-make-a-wildflower-bouquet

or neat and put together http://www.reception-wedding.com/bridal%20bouquet%20bright.jpg

I’m going to make my own, and I think I’ll go with the messier look with lots of green foliage.
How about you?

The first one. The second one looks too fake.

I prefer a neat bouquet, but I don’t care for cala lillies.
The messy wildflowers are beautiful, though, and I think if you can do them yourself that this route is better because if you don’t get a neat bouquet perfect then imperfections are much more noticeable than if you are going for a messy look which would allow you to hide any boo-boo’s.

The 2nd

I love neat bouquets. I think they look classy and elegant. I think it all really matters on where your ceremony is and what your style is though. Outdoor, a messy would be ok, indoor it wouldn’t look right I don’t think. If you are making it, it would probably be easier to to a neat bouquet.

number 2 bcuz we used that one at our wedding.

I prefer the 2nd one but it is a bit more formal. Are you having a very simple, casual wedding? If so, then #1. It all just depends on the dress.

I like the 2nd, neat one. I’m also using those flowers, in deep plum, for my bouquet.
The first one is a little too messy looking, but also keep in mind the style and color of your dress.
If you picked something stark white and more modern, the first bouquet will just look silly with it. If you have something lacey, or more vintage in an ivory color, that would work very well.

Good luck

I think finding some happy middle ground would be better. Like putting together an assortment of single stem Gerbera daisies with some sprigs of greenery. Definitely with a little more bold color than the pic you have of the wildflowers, but not necessarily so pristine as the callas.

I love the 2nd one and it looks a lot like the one that I’m going to have for our upcoming wedding except my calla lillies will be ivory.

I prefer the second one, that’s what I did because I had definite ideas about the flowers I wanted and I like tightly bound stems. a friend of mine just went and cut wild flowers from a nearby field for her bouquets on the morning of her wedding, and it was beautiful.

I think you’ve made up your mind!

But think about what your personality is and what type of vibe you want to set for you big day.
If more rustic/casual, the first one all the way.
But if you’re more of a sleek, modern type, go for the second.

I definitely prefer the messier bouquet. Not even just in these specific examples, I think a little disarray is more interesting, has its own awkward beauty.

Good luck! Sounds like a fun project!
