Obviously, I’ve put some thought into the bridesmaid bouquets, but there have only been a few fleeting considerations for my own. Here’s what I do know:
1. I want it monochromatic. The bridesmaid bouquets can have color (see link above for an example), but I want my blooms white. The only color I want is a few pale blue dusty miller leaves (I’ve kind of become obsessed with this plant…it’s the perfect color!).
2. I want texture. I’ll either stick with one kind of flower (or go ‘monobotanic’ as my co-worker Anja calls it), such as big fluffy garden roses or (and I know it’s cliché) peonies, or I’ll try a bundle of white roses, mini roses, ranunculus, freesia, and anything else that can be thrown in there, similar to this (but all white, obviously):

Actually, I’m kind of loving this design by JL Designs:
The flowers are balsa wood! Amazing!
Speaking of faux flowers, I might hit up a craft store soon just to throw together a few sample ideas to see which one I like best. (And to figure out which flowers I want to actually order.) Plus, I think I want to whip up something like this for the moms:

I know, I know, corsages are hokey, but seriously, how pretty is that? And what is a mom supposed to do with a bouquet anyway?
What kind of flowers are you planning to carry?
