I loved Victoria's. Kate's was lovely but too small for me. I wish it was at least a third larger (twice as large would be even better!).

I love the symbolism most royal brides incorporate into their bouquets. From my experience not a lot of regular brides use that much symbolism in their flowers. It seems like royal brides use it to express themselves- for Mary, the eucalyptus for her Aussie roots; for Kate it was Sweet William to express her love for her groom, for Märtha Louise, it was the Martha lily.

This bouquet is lovely, but is it me or did it seem a bit overwhelming?

Being sentimentally symbolic myself, I too love how many royal brides make an effort to incorporate this into their bouquets. Then again, I'm a flower-lover as well, so that probably adds to my interest.

Meanwhile I absolutely loved the (IMO perfection) of CP Letizia & CP Mary's bouquets for the symbolism AND how well they went with the gowns.

I really like Mette-Marit's bouquet & dress as well. Not saying that it was for "me" per se, but it worked magically for her and again, loving flowers the way I do, I think I "understood" what she was trying to do.

I also agree that while exquisite & lovely, Kate's bouquet could have been bigger, it kind of made me think maybe she had "left" some back in the car or some pieces had fallen off, and that Marie-Chantal's bouquet, while lovely seemed out of place a bit with the heavy dress & veil.

I also though Martha Louise's bouquet was spot on with her wedding ensemble because the flowers were pretty & complimented the style, although I would have had it just a tad bit longer or bigger to emphasize the lovely heart-shape even more.

CP Mathilde had a nice full bouquet, but....idk
CP Maxima looked so regal, but to me the bouquet had a little too much green
Although I wouldn't carry it myself, Princess Marilene had a nice "country feel" bouquet

Mathilde's looked like she was carrying a mini christmas tree.

I just saw a good pic of Zara's boquet and I have to say it looked very nice and beautiful while at the same time unique. Have to find out what kind of flowers she used.

The bouquet was white calla lilies, sea holly also known as alpine thistles and dusty millar foliage.

It was a very pretty bouquet but I found it to be too large, almost cumbersome. A smaller, "daintier" bouquet would have been much better.

I think my favorite bouquets are: Mary of Denmark, Marie-Chantal of Greece, Mette-Marit and Camilla's. I really liked Mette Marit's a lot.

For MHO, the bouquet of CP Mette-Marit is the most original and elegant one.

All of the bouquet's are beautiful, but I love Clotilda's bouquet best. It's very free formed & soft. The color of the roses are gorgeous. Mette-Marit's is also lovely & different.
