How can I differentiate my own wedding bouquet from my bridesmaids' bouquets?

There are several ways you can make your the blooms in your wedding bouquet look slightly different than your bridesmaids' bouquets. One option is to simply go bigger. Ask your florist to add a few more oversized buds to your bouquet or experiment with a different shape. Another idea is to play with color. Make your bridesmaids' buds monochrome and yours bursting with color, or vice-versa. Finally, you can also change the look (and price!) of a wedding bouquet simply by the flowers you choose. Design your dream wedding bouquet and then ask your florist to recreate it for your girls using less pricey floral counterparts.
