Here's the look I'm going for plus a few mini sunflowers. The florist told me many brides get ivory or very pale bouquets because bolder colors draw the guest's eye away from your face/dress and go right to the bouquet. But, I won't be carrying my flowers the entire night obviously. And I'm pretty sure people will be looking at my face...lol.

    Lol I am going to go to costco the day before and see what they have in stock and make the bouquets that night. I am guessing my colors are going to be brought fall ones.

    People will be looking at you, your bouquet is just an accent. I am carrying a small bunch of lily of the valley since it is easy to carry and its really classic.

    This is the closest thing to what my bouquet will sort of look like. It's orange gerberas, white aloemesteria, and bicolor roses in yellow and red.

    These are so pretty! I loved meeting with the florist...there are so many flowers and colors to choose from. @Donna I love the hint of yellow in yours! @Karen you are getting married the day before meSmiley smile ..love the orange! @Stacy yes I've never been much of a pink person but I love pink flowers so I went back to change my bouquet to add some rosita vendela roses...they are so pretty!

    We used peach. We wanted something that would look good with the MOH's burgundy dress, the dude of honor's blue suit, and our ivory dresses.

    This was my bouquet. I wanted it to be bright! My colors were teal, yellow and chocolate so I went with all yellow flowers. The sunflowers brung in the chocolate, too.
