Big Bouquet Trend - Into It or Over It?

This trend is where pinterest and practicality butt heads! Are you drawn to the massive bouquet trend? The cascading flowers can make for some stunning bridal portraits, but that bouquet has got to get heavy!! Not to mention the showstopping blossoms could distract from your dress! What do you...

    Into it! For the bride at least. Not too large that it takes away from the dress but just large enough.

    I love oversized bouquets, but some of them are getting insane big! Like the bouquet is 1/3 the size of the bride! I thought we were supposed to carry a bouquet, not an entire bush! 😆🤦🏼‍♀️

    Sometimes these are so comically big they make me laugh. I guess it doesn't really matter, it certainly doesn't impact the guests' experience, but I just think it looks kind of stupid.

    Mid sized is more my style. The huge ones just cover up the dress that you spent a small fortune on. Thanks, but no thanks.

    Mid size is best...anything bigger is way too much

    Over it! They're beautiful but impractical... I actually really love the single stem more.

    Over it for more than 1 reason. It would be heavy to carry, expensive if done with real flowers, and it covers the dress!

    Over it. Was never into it to begin with. Something like this takes away from the bride.

    Love it, just not for me. I think they look best at large weddings in large spaces. And like someone else said, they overwhelm the dress. I was gonna go with a bridesmaid size for myself and nosegays for my bridesmaids, but then I fell in love with a what I guess the children call a midsize bouquet. My maids will have a small bouquet of long stemmed hydrangeas.

    Over it - you have to CARRY that, and it blocks the dress!

    Way too huge lol. I can definitely see grandkids laughing back. I do like big bouquets but that's one huge bouquet!

    I'm into it, but maybe slightly smaller. The bride gets a bit consumed when the bouquet is so big and it takes the shine away from her.
