May 2013 Weddings

Would this bother you? (PIP)

Our wedding is at a vineyard and I have fallen in love with some of the decor I've seen on Pinterest involving baby's breath. I am also pretty in love with the price of baby's breath. Having said that, I also love peonies, and they are in season for our wedding day. So here's my question to you ladies: if you were a bridesmaid in a wedding, would you be totally offended if the bride had a peony bouquet and you had a baby's breath bouquet? I don't want the girls I feel closest to to feel like I justified buying myself rather expensive flowers and rather inexpensive flowers for them. I really like the look below but I would want the bridesmaid's bouquets to be fuller/more perfectly circular, because I'm OCD like that. What do you think? Would this bother you? Honesty is appreciated. (ETA: check spelling, haha)

  • Its your day and you can choose whatever flowers (or non-flowers) you want! I wouldnt be offended. I think if someone actually made a comment to me about being cheap would be someone I wouldnt want standing up there with me.

  • It wouldn't bother me... After all it is your big day and something else to think about is that they are only going to carry/hold their bouquets for about an hr or so... Don't stress it...

  • I wouldn't be either, it's your wedding! But then again I'm not much of a flower person lol
  • I think baby's breath is beautiful.  I would totally do that if you like it.  I actually saved this one picture of a centerpiece for a long time that was only baby's breath and queen anne's lace- beautiful!

  • Ah, thanks so much for the opinions!! I think I will go ahead and make this the plan for bouquets!

  • It wouldn't bother me an inch!  I think that as a bridesmaid, this should be the least of your concerns (unless there is an allergy to flowers of course!) and more focus should be on the happiness you have for your friend/family member getting married.

    I was thinking of peonies and baby's breathe for my bouquet also! With lavender too


    I don't think the bridesmaids will care, I know wouldn't if I was in their place.

  • not one bit. i think it's super pretty. but don't be surprised if it's hard to get a BB bouquet to be more perfectly circular. That's hard to do with flowers like that.

  • Thanks again for all of the opinions! I feel much better doing this now. FI saw me writing this thread and later said, "SO?!? What do the girls say?!?" which I found hilarious. Krikin, I LOVE the look you posted with the peonies and BB together! And Mel, I totally googled "when is peony season in St. Louis" before we set a date, haha. And thank's for the heads up about the BB, PJBHL! Didn't know that!

  • My girls are having babies breath bouquets

  • I'd say it's your wedding and it's your decision. I think the idea is really pretty! I was recently in a wedding where I thought the bouquets the bride picked were butt ugly, but it was what she wanted and I didn't say a single thing. It wasn't my wedding and her and I have different tastes on some things. Plus, it's not like it ruined my day carrying something that I wouldn't have picked.
