    Here's my bouquet inspiration. I don't even remember where I found this pic now (probably somewhere on here, let's be honest!). I'm going to do an aqua ribbon on the stem for a little color. :)

            I love this bouquet!  I am torn right now with this decision.  Need to figure out the flowers this weekend!

              I have a question for all of you now-married ladies...when presenting your inspiration photos to a florist for your bouquet, do you think less is more?  I have 5 or 6 pictures I could show of similar bouquets (round, hand-tied, mixed flowers all in a variety of pinks), but I'm worried that more options may complicate the issue.

                Thank you for the input. I was leaning towards the flowers because birds of paradise were FI's grandma's favorite flower. He was raised by his grandparents, and his Gram died 7 years ago. I wanted to honor her for raising such an incredible man, and I think this will be perfect. I guess I could always make seashell centerpieces. Plus my bridesmaids are carrying parasols, and kinda like the idea of me being the only one with flowers. Birds of paradise bouquet, final answer.

                Oooohhhh.....difficult decision!! I don't know if you're interested in opinions but I have to express mine. :D As much as I love seashells, I think the birds of paradise bouquet is absolutely fantastic! It looks really vibrant and just gorgeous against the backdrop of a light dress. I don't know what your wedding colors are but my eye is immediately drawn to that birds of paradise bouquet over the seashells. Good luck!

                  Thanks imadore and brenners!! FH told me he thought I should carry a cala Lilly bouquet. I think he imagined long stem calalillies (oh well) so I hope he likes what I picked!

                    I think the bird of paradise bouquet is so unique and the colors really pop!  And that is a great way to honor your FI's grandma as well.
