Before we got engaged I had NO idea that brides carried bright beautiful bouquets. I assumed that because I was the bride I would be wearing stark white (well soft ivory) and holding a stark white bouquet. Thanks to all my favorite blogs listed on the side of this blog my eyes were opened to the bright beautiful bouquet world! I was still undecided when we met with a potential florist. Until, that is, she said "Well I just hate it when the Bride is jealous of her attendants florals! Yours should be the prettiest and honestly the most colorful." Her words of wisdom won me over, I had converted from a timid white bride to a bright bride!
As I mentioned in my previous post I wanted amongst my beautiful Dahlias and Garden Roses stark white Hyacinths to honor my Grandmother's memory. But as we discussed previously my color discussion with my florist was riddled with my inability to accurately describe the colors I wanted. So I called her last week and hashed out the new color scheme and I was able to send her this beautiful color palate my MOH made.

I explained to my wonderful florist that I wanted the above color palate in my bouquet, just a mixture of beautiful coral, apricot, blush, burgundy and a light touch of chocolate brown. She was thrilled, since originally she had just planned on making an all blush bouquet. So hopefully my bouquet will turn out like an amazing multi-hued bouquet similar to the one below. With of course my beautiful white hyacinths popping out.
What do you think are you a white or bright floral bride?
