Tying the Knot: Bouquets and Boutonnieres

If you can recall from this post and this post, I had been trying to decide, for the longest time if I wanted my bouquet to be a beautiful white bride-y bouquet or if I wanted a bouquet that would pop out from my dress with its vibrant colors. I think deep down, I always wanted a white bouquet. I already knew that the BM's would be carrying dahlias so having white dahlias in my bouquet was only natural. But the spider mums, oh the spider mums. Mommy and I have always loved them and I must say that they really gave my bouquet the perfect fluffiness. The bouquet was finished off with white button mums and I loved the end result.

Chris wore a white dahlia for his boutonniere. Confession: From day one I was attracted to Chris' jawline. I love everything about it.
The groomsmen each had a raspberry aster as their boutonniere. The plum ties were a gift from the Groom.
The bridesmaids bouquets were plum dahlias and raspberry asters. This was our inspiration for the bridesmaids bouquets. They turned out plum-ish enough for my matchy-matchy obsessive compulsiveness with just the right amount of a raspberry "pop". My beautiful bridesmaids and I, all lined up in a row with our pretty little bouquets.
Sidenote: This is the picture you will get if you force the guys to pose with the bouquets. They thought they were hilarious.

Oh my goodness -- these are all fabulous. I love the fluffy and unique aspects of your bouquet and the colors of the BMs bouquets are just stunning -- especially against the black! And the photo of the guys holding them...hilarous! I love it!

I am jealous of your dahlias! They look gorgeous. Your bouquet is perfect. It has all of my favorite flowers in it.

Really, really beautiful! So much better than the trial run, don't you think? I do like the fluffiness of your bouquet and that shot of all of you lined up is stunning! Kelly

PS I never commented but I like that Chris went for the clean scruff look. I know that was a debate of yours along time ago! Landon still doesn't know what hair style he wants yet alone what he'll do with his facial hair.

Hey Jessica. Hope you had a great Thanksgiving! Just browsed through some of your wedding photos again and I just noticed that Chris went with the scruff look! Didn't catch that before. I remember the post you did on it...seemed your hubby preferred the slightly stubble look - handsome either way!
