Oversized Bouquets: Into It or Over It?

This final trend is a pin-spiration vs. practicality showdown! Massive oversized bouquets look stunning in pictures, but in real life they've got to be heavy!!! From giant single blooms to huge cascading bouquets, fantastic floral bouquets have seriously swung back in popularity. 馃拹

How do you feel about the oversized bouquet trend? Are you into it or over it??

    I LOVED my oversized bouquet - even though I had to start carrying it around like a football by the time we got to the end of cocktail hour Smiley winking haha

    Over it. Simplicity wins out for me...and flowers and bouquets are expensive as it is...lol. I don't want to hide behind a bouquet all day either.

    Over it! Am all for the larger florals but you don't want them to be heavy and uncomfortable and overpower the dress

    I am over it. I am wanting to have a smaller boquet of red roses. Still am not sure about where I am going to get them from s it will be fake flowers as my fianc茅 is allergic.

    They are beautiful, but I do think they are slightly over the top - I am going to have to say over it.

    I didnt plan on having a large bouquet... But when it showed up on my wedding day it was almost twice as big as i had anticipated. It was BEAUTIFUL! I loved it so much! But definitely did cover my dress in most of the photos!
    And yes it was very heavy! I had to keep taking breaks and make other people carry it for me 馃槀 By the end of the day i couldnt hold it up high with one arm anymore lol.
    I dont regret it one bit though!

    I think that they are beautiful in theory, but at the end of the day, you are the STAR! If you have spent the time to pick out the dress of your dreams, it will take away from the little details you probably love about it. It will also take away from you, yourself. It's your day to shine.

    I'm sure a large arrangement would look fabulous around your venue for decor though! Smiley love

    They are stunning, but they do take away from the dress a bit!

    So over it!! I love some of the trendy oversize pins but just cause it looks good on Pinterest doesn't mean it will look good for you at your wedding with your florist in real life.

    I totally agree. It's the first thing I thought... you can't even see her dress!

    I love big bouquets! I wouldn鈥檛 personally go for something as big as the first one, but I can appreciate the style/look they鈥檙e going for. Mine is on the big side, probably closer to the second image.

    This is a thing???? WHY???? It not only covers up half of the bride but it takes your eye away from her in pictures! NOBODY is looking at the bride in that first pic - your eyes are drawn to the bright red in that enormous bouquet instead!

    Never been my style personally. I'm just not a flower person. They can be gorgeous, though!
