    I was thinking about carrying white roses and pink orchids, and my bridesmaids carrying white lilies.

    Will this work?? Or should the bouquets share similiar flowers?

      I think it would be fine. Assuming the bouquets are essentially the same "style" (romantic, contemporary etc) I think it would look great. If you feel you need to "connect" them somehow, maybe choose some greenery or trim that could match?

      My BM's all carried a bouquet of just one type of flower in a shade of pink (ie: pink stargazer lily, super pale pink peony, nearly fuschia gerbera daisy etc) and I carried a bouquet that was a combination of all those, but white only, no colors. I think it looked great and was fun to have a variety of flowers. :-)

        Ohhh, that sounds so pretty! Too bad I am not using flowers for my BM's. :-(

          I am going to have combination of flowers while my BMs will just carry a bouquet with Calla Lilies. They'll work just fine I think..

            My bouquet is all ivory roses with champagne accents.

            BM bouquets are all bright and tropical.

            You can totally do whatever you want!

            I LOVE the BM bouquets I picked, but didn't want too much color to detract from my dress ...

              i want mine to go together nicely, but not be too matchy matchy...

              i want a bouquet made mostly of ranunculis (i always spell this wrong) in orange for me and my bms will carry the same but in white to offset their orange dresses.
