Yesterday, we discussed centerpieces. Today, let’s talk about bouquets!
I love the look of lush, romantic bouquets. Mrs. Cowboy Boot’s? TO. DIE. FOR:
Alas, a lot of those lush bouquets come with a pretty price, especially because they often use high-priced flowers like peonies. However, I still want to show the florist these types of bouquets, so she gets a feel of what I like. Here’s a few lush fall bouquets I’ve clipped:
How lovely and unexpected are these?! I love the pop of green…somehow, it doesn’t look Christmas-y to me, which green and red so often can. And look how lush that white bouquet is! This is something else I am considering—carrying an ivory bouquet and having my bridesmaids carry red.
Gorgeous! I love these—great way to incorporate different types of red flowers. This is my top contender—I would love something like these.

If you follow me on Twitter, you know that yesterday I was questioning how the hell to determine a floral budget. Thankfully, a wonderful blog friend stepped in to guide me through the questions I should ask and the things I should expect. I definitely plan to write about my own experiences, but her advice was so valuable that hopefully, she’ll be doing a fantastic blog entry for you on this soon! 🙂
Next up in the Flower Power series, we’ll talk about bouts and miscellaneous flowers…and I’ll let you know how my floral appointments went!
