Bouquets for the Bride

I wanted to share with all of you some of the inspiration behind my bouquet. Mommy and I are meeting with the florist in a couple of weeks, so I'm attempting to scrounge together some sort of vision for what I want to carry down the aisle in September.
If you remember from this post, I was attempting to determine whether I wanted the traditional white bouquet or if I wanted something with color that would pop against my dress.
As you'll see from the pictures below, I think we're going to go with the pop.

I love this stunning bouquet in every way possible...it's the perfect shade of pink with a little bit of texture. via (evoke photography)Fluffy is the word that comes to mind when I see this bouquet featured on e lucky designs. What in the world kind of flowers are those because they are hotttttt?!
This picture grabbed my attention because of the raspberry anemones and the (too light of purple) purple flowers. Photo by (brooke schwab photography) via elizabeth anne designs) .
This one is the front runner. Partly because it has raspberry dahlias with a tinge of plum. Here's the catch though...this bouquet might look a little too similar to the ones my bridesmaids will be carrying (post coming on those later today). So I am thinking about adding in some spider mums to the mix for my bouquet. Pretty sure they come in dark magenta colors (aka raspberry) and that, my friends, makes me happy.

I like these, especially the one lying on the bench. I have for sure decided on color rather than white but am not sure if I want a bunch of different color flowers or more similar flowers. Also, I'm not huge on roses and it will be October, so . . . hmm . . . we'll see. Kelly

I love the idea of the pop! I was thinking if i can't find the right color dresses i will prolly do the same. I also love the look of arry of plums/raspberries. So it doesn't look so dense!

PS these candice and kristen characters seem a tad CRAZY
