Which would you choose?

Before you leave the Brouhaha for the weekend, I have an opportunity for you to help me with next week’s Which Bouquet post. Von from My Fleur Journey suggested that I choose a dress one week and have you all submit one of your bouquets for the bouquet choices. I loved her idea…so, here is the dress for next week…

The rules are simple…you may submit a photo of one bouquet to me at …the bouquet must be your personal design. Excited to see which one of your designs you would pair with this dress. Don’t forget to look for your bouquet in next week’s lineup of choices!

Have a great weekend…
