I've had trouble deciding on flowers for many reasons. I'm much pickier about the flowers I like than I originally thought I would be (I guess it's one thing to like most flowers for everyday decor, another to like them for your wedding bouquet). I've looked at thousands of bouquets, but rarely see any I love, because they all seem to be a mix of flowers I like and flowers I don't like. I notice I prefer a lot of bouquets made with only one type of flower and nothing else added, but I think I would like bouquets with multiple types of flowers, if only I liked every flower used. I love spider mums, especially in green, and I like roses in a lot of colors. I wonder how something like this would look when done with real flowers, perhaps with green spider mums and hot pink roses?
The more I look at it, the more I love it! It's just hard when it's fake and different than a real bouquet would be like. I image real spider mums will look a bit more spiked, and real roses might not be as open, so they'll look smoother and tighter, creating a lot more contrast between the flower types than the fake bouquet has. I prefer less contrast in the shapes, I think. But this is different and really pretty.I wanted spider mums and dahlias for the bridesmaids, but dahlias turned out to be difficult to get (despite being the national flower and supposedly common - what's up with that?), so I'm trying to figure out what to do there, too. Maybe the spider mum/rose combo in different colors, but I have my fianc© to think of, too. Her bouquet could be something different, but I wouldn't want it so different that mine would stand out as strange, matching the bridesmaids when I'm a bride. I am probably obsessing over this in a way no one else will, but it's my nature. I am a perfectionist, for better or worse.
