Uh, I changed my mind! What’s interesting is that now that I’m knee deep planning my quirky, red-colored destination wedding, I don’t even like the peony bouquets anymore. They just don’t go with our wedding. Funny how life works, huh? I am so glad I didn’t buy them way back then!
The irony being that despite still being months away from our wedding day, I bought an Etsy bouquet! I just got too scared that I wouldn’t love my bouquet, so I bit the bullet and bought a faux flower bouquet.
It arrived yesterday! Take a gander:
More prettiness, sans annoying cat:
Bouquet with matching boutonniere:
The faux flowers were not cheap, BUT I really like how they turned out. And I’ll have them forever. The seller told me her wedding bouquet from 14 years ago still looks awesome. Sweet!
Here is the stock photo of the bouquet:

Stephania from Wedideas was GREAT to work with. She answered my questions promptly, and was able to make the customizations I asked for. She even sent me a sample pic of another bouquet she’d done in my colors so I could see what it looked like. We tweaked that, and ended up with my final product. I LOVE the red embellishments! She also customized the boutonniere for me.
Would you consider using faux flowers for your bouquet/boutonniere? Are there any wedding decisions that you’ve changed your mind on?
