You're going to look fantastic! And your dress will fit beautifully with a corset back! I've always loved that style, which is what mine is! lol

I love your flower choices.

 

I think they look great - and I would keep the blue elastic :P

 

I think the BM's bouquets look nicer with 5, just makes it a fuller bouquet.

Your bouquet is very unique in how you stacked the flowers. We had a bride on here not long ago that short of went for that style over the standard ones that are more in a 'circle'  haha excuse my lack of proper terminology.

Thank you @calgarybride2015 :) I didn't have a shape for my bouquet in mind, I just wanted to find something that worked for my flowers even if it wasn't "circle" lol I don't know the terminology either. I was going to possibly add more smaller, closed roses and some extra greenery but I may not now. The roses came with detachable greenery that I could slide into the bouquet wherever. I'm so in love with the look of the big lilies and roses.

I'm in two minds with the BMs bouquets, I think I'm leaning towards the 3 only because then the lilies don't look squished. But all the opinions I've gotten so far say to go with 5.

I love the look of your bouquet, you did a fantastic job! I've never seen flowers arranged that way and I think it's a beautiful arrangement. The flowers and greenery compliment each other so well too!

As for the bridesmaids bouquet, I'm gonna go against the grain and say that I like the look of 3 the best. You can tell that they're calla lilies more with three than five. I agree with you about the, being squished a bit but regardless, both if them look great so you can't go wrong either way. How are you going to wrap the stems?

Thanks @Wafflesmom! I've never seen a bouquet like mine either, I just played around until it looked nice. I'll most likely keep it this way but wanted to get some feed back. The view from the side is nice:

It shows off the lilies a bit.

I think the 3 stems is nice too! I'm so torn!

I was going to wrap the stems in either white ribbon, but now I'm thinking maybe silver to go with the silver bits I'm adding? Initially I was also thinking about just gluing them together and not using ribbon but still playing around with all that. Would love some feedback!

Ohhh I love the side view. I didn't realize what was on the other side.

I would use ribbon or something of the sort. I think it just finishes off the look!

@calgarybride2015 I agree! Do you think silver would look nice? Like a translucent, mesh type? I'm probably not describing it right, I'll find a pic online lol

I've seen so many things done here over the past 1.5 years. I've seen the basic white or a solid color, I've seen patterns, jute, even wire. Anything will look great :) but am curious to see what you mean.
