Blend or Pop?

Yesterday I read a post at blu.sky.designs that made me re-think my bridal bouquet. Not what I wanted to do! April's post makes me want to abandon all that is holy and go against my first true love of a bouquet that will (hopefully) look something like the one below:

I have always loved the look of a full rounded hand-tied bouquet of white roses. But then the post took me into a whole other realm of thought regarding the white bouquet against my white dress. The white bouquets don’t pop. They blend right on in with the dress, especially in photos.
Now bouquets like this one will never blend. They will scream “look at me!!”

So the next question is….blend or pop!?

my 2 cents: if you decide to go POP i'd go with a solid color boquet so it is still beautifully elegant, white is always classy as well and neither solid or white distracts from your smile in pictures!

It's such a tough choice! Gotta love color though :)

If you are having multiple colors in your wedding, then by all means, POP! If you are only having one color (black or white doesn't count), than blend!

does my opinion count? = )

yes precious, of course it does!

it SO depends on your dress! white dress = POP. ivory/champagne/etc = white!

My dress is a light gold/ivory so I'm going with white and green for my bouquet. I figure it will pop against the slightly darker dress.
