Matching Bridal & Bridesmaids bouquets

Hello brides! Would love your opinion, should the bridal bouquet match the bridesmaids bouquet. Here’s a photo of my bouquet next to a sample of the one for my bridesmaids. I’m wondering if we should take out the colour in the bridesmaid bouquet and make them more similar to mine. Does it matter if they don’t match? Help!

    Mine will be matching to some degree. The bridesmaids will have more babies breath and mine will have more roses in it. The major differences in the bouquets will be the size. The bridal bouquet will be larger than the bridesmaids bouquet. I don't think it really matters if they are similar or not. It is whatever you want. After all it is your wedding!

    Ours won't match, but they will go together with similar flowers.

    My bridesmaids and my bouquet will match as well, theirs will be somewhat of a smaller version of mine, but the same flowers and colours.

    Ours will match. We will all have greenery, succulents, and midnight lilies except mine will have 1 or 2 orange lilies added to make to make mine pop!

    Mine are the same style but smaller so they’ll match. I’m a pretty matchy matchy person haha. Maybe you could add greenery to theirs so they look more similar to yours but it’s really up to you and what you want!

    Don't think it does. Mine is very different from my bridesmaids.

    I agree with the other girls... different/complimenting colours are totally fine, but totally different shapes/styles will probably clash.

    Maybe if you want a specific shape/style just for yours (cascading, bigger, etc), keep the other girls colours the same, but with the smaller/round shape. Some sort of consistency should be present... in my opinion.

    Mine is going to be bigger, with white roses, and spots of blue wild thistles and greenery. The girls will just be smaller versions with just white roses/baby's breath... but both the same shape.

    I don't think they have to match. Mine did for my wedding but I kind of like the idea of contrasting bouquets.

    Mine is going to be the same flowers as theirs but mine will have roses and theirs won't. I am also going to have more shades of purple and pink in mine where they will have more white and mostly lighter purple in theirs so it's all slight differences

    I think they are both very pretty, but the seem like two different styles. My bouquet is not going to match my bridesmaids, but the style is going to be the same. Mine will have burgundy colored flowers with white roses and the girls will just have white roses, but all bouquets will be in the same hand tied style so they match.

    You could leave the bridesmaids bouquets with the colors but just change the design of them to match yours with the greenery and the looser hand tied style so they have the same matching look.

    mismatch colors can be pretty, but style the same.

    Both are very pretty but too different for my taste. Looks like 2 different styles, I would have to change something so they match a little more. But like others have said it's your day and you gotta have what you want.

    I agree with Sarah! It's your day and at the end of it all your decision but I personally prefer everything matching!
    What colour are their dresses? Having the lack of colour in the bouquet and then a colour in the dress would be a great accent!!

    Thanks Sarah! I’m going to have to get them to change it. I feel bad because they are pretty but I want them to match my bouquet which is white with greenery, no colour!

    I think they’re very beautiful! Honestly I don’t think it matters if they match, as long as you are happy with them! I’m a little ocd when it comes to matching so all mine will be the same! But at the end of the day it’s just what you want and the look you want on your day!
