What do you all think of this idea? FI and I are going to have a "winter wonderland" themed wedding (lots of whites, silvers, golds, and reds) and since I love the theme b/c I love snowflakes and anythign sparkley, what do you think of a bouquet like this? I could just get some crystals to stick in a bouquet also if this seems over the top, but I thought it was neat b/c it's different...

is it too much and should I just go with adding some crystal stems to a floral bouquet, or is it cool?

ETA: I think it may be a bit much.....what do you guys think of adding a few crystal stems to a bouquet?? Or is it too much...I'd have to have colored ribbon though to make it stand out from my dress??

I think a dark red rose bouquet with the sparkly things interspered(sp?) throughout would look beautiful-in fact, I think I''ve seen something similar before. I''ll see what I can dig up in my wedding files. No ribbon hanging down though- maybe the stems just wrapped in ivory/white.

Sweetpea .. I''m guessing you''re twenties/early 30s?? Do you remember those hairy clear plastic trippy light thingies you''d buy at the mall? THAT''s what it reminds me of. Fiber optic lamps ...

Something like this calla bouquet, only with dark red roses:
Oooohhh. That''s pretty. I like it as pictured too! Def can get behind crystals or beads as an accent .. but not as the whole she-bang! (JMO)

HAHAHA, OMG DECO it does, that''s terrible!!!!! I''ll def go with a few stems in the bouquet rather than the whole thing as a bouquet. I''m just so attracted to anything that sparkles! I figured it wasnt the best idea, and that in reality it would probably not look very good, but I needed to be talked out of it before buying something spontaneously that was stupid! I tend to get excited and just do stuff then think about it later!

I''m 25 so I totally remember those fiber optic things.

Molly--I love those red flowers with the crystal stems added in though, that''s the look that I was thinking of as well!

You know I actually held one of those in person when trying my dress on, they actually look prettier in person. I am having my wedding in January (a month to go!) and I ended up going with this -- a white/cream boquet of roses, hydrangeas (looks snowy) with TONS of crystals dispersed through -- now THAT's the way to do it!

In the current Modern Bride (dec/jan) there is a "Winter Wonderland" themed wedding (which is what we''re going to do) and her flowers have crystals on the outside and are white...it''s really cool!

The hydrangea is a god idea!!! Maybe I''ll use it for centerpieces for a snowy look, although I love this for a wintery centerpeice...have to see how much it is:

I like it, actually!
Yup, even though I do remember the fiber optic thingies...
But having a few in a bouquet is a great idea too.

I think having a few of ''em interspersed between flowers is much better than a whole bouquet of those things.
