They would be absolutely stunning carried in front of a white or cream-coloured gown!
I agree that the bouquet would be beautiful for a wedding (but anything in pink obviously would ). It would match in wonderfully with some maybe paler pink bridesmaids' gowns too! I mean, not that they would be carrying it, but for the photos it would all match in. Pink tulips would look great as well.

I see I've found a fellow kindred pink lover in you Danielle! :p A smaller bouquet of pink tulips would be lovely, too. I thought this particular bouquet of Mary's was so beautiful because it was pink first of all(!) but also because it was so big and lush.

I think even bridesmaids wearing the exact same colour as the roses would be nice, and they could carry a bouquet of white or cream roses if the bride carried pink roses such as these.

Marie Chantals bouquet was a real masterpiece of floral work. This kind of bouquet is called gamelie. If you look closely you can see it looks like one big rose, but it es made of hundrets of petals. These singel petals were beted on wire. It takes a lot of time to make it and it works only a few hours before the petals begin to wilt.
It is a dream of mine to be able to do sometihing like this.
It is on eof the things which do look very sinple and plain but are extremly complex.
Mette Marits and Märtha Louises bouquetes were also high leveled floral pieces which were a very good example for the coordinating between floral work and the designer of the gown.
On the other hand, the bouquet of Mathilde was really to big for her and for the gown. There was no balance between them. This is something of the first things you have to learn when you want to work as a florist. Look at the balance. there are things which don't go. If you have a bride 1,56m tiny you can't go with a bouquet like Diana had. It is to big for her, it has to be smaler. And if you have a bride with a gown like Diana you can't got with a bouquet which is made of 3 little roses.
So sometimes I look at these royal brides and think was there nobody who was able to combine these two things in a balanced way?

I was and I still am enamored of and fascinated by Mette-Marit's floral piece that she carried at her wedding. Unusual, weird and gorgeous and there weren't nearly enough close-up pictures for me. You either love or you hate it and I loved it

I also think it is gorgeous. I really love the colour.

We now have another wedding bouquet to add to the list. Laura Parker-Bowles. Photos originally posted by Elsa. M and are from UKPress. Does anyone know what the flowers are? I've forgotten their name.

Oh that's the name. Thank you very much. I've been thinking and thinking and couldn't remember. Princess Märtha Louise also had them in her beautiful bouquet as well.

The bouquet of Crown Princess Sarah of Brunei is really amazing, most wedding bouquets are fresh flowers, but CP Sarah's bouquet is GOLD and Diamonds...They are so rich!

Lauras mother had the same flowers incorporated into her bouquet and used them to decorate the church.

So many lovely bouquets that I can't pick a fav. But MM definitely has the ugliest IMO.

I really like this one of Princess Beatrix:

Beeldbank
I think it's very similar to Infanta Letizia's Bouquet!

Baroness Isabelle von Senden's bouquet was quite beautiful at it matched the country spirit of the wedding very well:

The two wedding bouquets of princess Aimee of the Netherlands, the first one of the civil ceremony, the second one of the church ceremony:



Both pics from DPA and originally posted by Elsa M. in the wedding thread. :)

When it comes to wedding bouquets, I really liked Letizia's! Mette-Marit's bouquet was something different, not quite my taste...

I think my favourites are Letizia's, Mary's, Mette-Marit's and Queen Noor's.

I also really liked Rania's, Princess Noor's and Camilla's.

Although we don't carry bouquets, I've never particularly liked the idea of red/pink flowers, particularly roses at a wedding. So whilst I think this bouquet is beautiful, I don't think it would look nice at a White Wedding

Actually I would have to give my vote to Mary, very unique, very interesting look to it. The dress was so simple that the bouquet stood out so wonderfully.

Oops missed another one, Lady Davina's is great. The blue looks wonderful, what a nice refreshing style of bouquet. I liked that whole wedding.

I loved Laura Parker-Bowles's bouquet. It was perfectly sized for her and for her outfit, and added a lacy, feminine quality that she seemed to be going for. It just looked extremely romantic. And for the record, I loved MM's bouquet- she took a risk, and it worked for her. And it definately gave us something to talk about.
