Different bouquet shapes and flowers

Lucy, on December 31, 2018 at 13:06 Posted in Plan a wedding 0 3

Hi everyone

I'm after some thoughts on different bouquet options. I can't make a decision! My wedding colours are royal blue with bright yellow highlights. My MOH is wearing blue, carrying yellow flowers. Men will be wearing a blue vest with a yellow boutonniere etc. I know for sure I want some colour in my bouquet with blue and white flowers and would prefer a cascade/waterfall/teardrop shape. I also really like the silk ribbon roses so I'm 90% decided of that for the MOH's bouquet, boutonnieres, corsages etc, but I'm having trouble finding silk ribbon roses in a cascade shape for my bouquet.

This is the shape I like:

But these are the "flowers" everyone else will have:

I have found this option with the colours and the shape I like, but a very different style of flower to the rest of the wedding flowers. It's cost prohibitive to get all the wedding flowers done in this style, so it would only be my bouquet that would be this mix.

Has anyone ever seen a silk ribbon rose cascade bouquet? Do they even make them? Or should I stick with the cascade options with different flowers? Will it look odd that they are different to everyone else? Or should I compromise on the style/shape for matching flowers?

    I think if you have some of the same flowers, with some different ones, that's fine! Similar colors and a type of flower or two in common will be plenty to tie them together. I say go ahead and add in some other flower types/shapes to get the look you want!

    We are doing regular flowers but I will have a cascading bouquet with a mix of flowers/peacock feathers.

    My bridesmaids will have a simpler bouquet with some feathers too. I will get a toss bouquet that looks like this too.

    I think having different flowers is fine! My bouquet along with the bridesmaids and boutonnieres are a mix of different flowers! I was all about the colour!

    Also all of our flowers are silk and I bought them from dressmywedding on etsy! I cannot recommend her store enough everything I got was absolutely amazing! And she's great about making custom bouquets as well! Mine personally was a cascading similar to the photo attached, but I had her add in white roses as well since there were going to be white roses on the boutonnieres! No roses on the bridesmaids bouquets though! They were just lilies!
