Planning an English seaside wedding.

OK, posted too soon. Dress is creamish, taupe, slim fit to the floor.

Flower girls will be holding large pink round twirl lollies.
Its between

This is the dress.

smithneejones Wed 28-Jan-15 05:44:12

Or does it all look a bit odd? confused

Not sure which of the second link's bouquets you were thinking of, but the buttons are fun, and a bit more eye catchingly different.

I think the first one might just fade into the background of your dress. Could the balls be made to match the twirl lollies?

nooka Wed 28-Jan-15 05:48:20

Looking at the dress I definitely think buttons. Are you very chic smithneejones? What is your fiance going to wear?

smithneejones Wed 28-Jan-15 05:53:09

Very chic?! In my head I am. My feet say different!

Fiance will wear a black or brown suit. I can make bouquet brighter. The trouble is I can't find a matching button boutonniere. So the seashell cream one is out? That's my least fave anyway.
I like button best but billyball one matches better with groom and flower girls...confused

nooka Wed 28-Jan-15 06:26:56

I thought that the seashell one was a bit dull. If your fiance wears a black suit and the right sort of shade of pink cummerband/tie/flower/handkerchief I think that would work, no need to be completely matchy matchy smile I think if you are going to go different with your bouquet you might as well go really different!

The button person seems to do quite a few interesting bouquets, would it be worth emailing her and asking if should could make you a button boutonniere too?

Google 'lollipop bouquet' & choose 'images' there are some great bouquets on there.

Are you having fish & chips in paper?

I hope you have a lovely day!

smithneejones Wed 28-Jan-15 06:41:31

Pie shop for tea!

Also what kind of jacket, shrug, shawl? I was thinking black leather, biker style!

Good idea Nooka about pink or peach flower for groom. No need for totally matching smile

nooka Wed 28-Jan-15 06:46:42

I suspect that whatever happens you are going to rock your wedding! Biker chic grin

ChippingInLatteLover Wed 28-Jan-15 07:02:26

'Pie shop for tea'. Love it!!

What's the guest dress code?

ChippingInLatteLover Wed 28-Jan-15 07:03:14

Cream cashmere, ultra soft, wrap?

smithneejones Wed 28-Jan-15 07:30:47

No dress code! Oh dear, I've not even thought of that! Its like a runaway train!

ChippingInLatteLover Wed 28-Jan-15 07:44:33

No dress code?

Beach, pie shop... Surely means I can wear jeans very casual clothes?

smithneejones Wed 28-Jan-15 08:02:03

Of course! I thought that too! blush or as sailors...
Perhaps not. So chippin billy balls or button?

youmakemydreams Wed 28-Jan-15 08:08:31

Billy balls. I love that it's a bit quirky. Button bouquets are everywhere.
Me and my mum are madly crocheting flowers for mine and it will have a few flowers in it made by family and friends and dp's late granny.

wobblebobblehat Wed 28-Jan-15 08:11:57

I don't like any of them and I really don't get those button bouquets.

Fresh flowers every time...

addictedtosugar Wed 28-Jan-15 08:39:59

When you first said seeside, I thought sea thistles, however I think that wouldn't fit with your style.

Give the flower girl lollies, I think I'd get the pink or pastel from the second link, and get the groom in a colour that matches.

I agree the first link will disappear against your dress.

Third link could work if groom in brown?

ThinkIveBeenHacked Wed 28-Jan-15 08:44:00

I really like the top one but agree, against the dress and with the BMs lollipops I think it may look plain.

ThinkIveBeenHacked Wed 28-Jan-15 09:27:42

what about a sweetie one for you?
