    Ok, so I've been debating what kind of bouquet to choose.... need your help.

    IF it helps at all in making your decision, here's what is going on....My colors are light blue and white and using pink roses as touches.

    I will have hot pink pomanders in the chairs lining up the aisle and pink petals in the aisle. I will also have pink roses as center pieces. My shoes are going to be white, my dress is going to be all white. The wedding arch is going to be decorated in white linen.

    So my question is:

    1. Should I have a hot pink rose bouquet?

    2. A white calla lily bouquet?

    3. A white calla lily bouquet with white roses?

          I would go with the pink roses. They will stand out against all of the white.

            i chose pink & white roses. I think that because you have so much going on w/ just pink (aisle decor, petals, and centerpieces) having an all pink will just blend in and not really stand out. I love callas they are my favorite, although i think they look weird w/ an all white dress. Because they are more off-white I think they look better w/ an off-white or ivory dress. I think that have a multi-color bouquet would really stand out. I personally think you should go for adding an extra color into your bouquet or multiple pinks like these:

            Good luck! Whatever you choose will be great!

              Wow what a hard choice. I love the calla lily bouquet, but the pink and white one will add some colour and match your pink touches you have going on.

                  I voted for the white cally lily bouquet, its so elegant and lovely! but not over powering... I think sometimes with the bright bouquets your eye is drawn there first. All are beautiful choices though so either way it will look amazing.

                    I agree 100% with Celina - white callas with like 3-5 pink roses. That would be gorgeous!

                      I just had this discussion with my florist last week...he suggested using a color bouquet instead of all white, because in pictures, the contrast looks much better. I think a bit of both would look very nice.
