The most disappointing bridal bouquet, ever


I was never a religious watcher of the HBO show “Sex and the City”. But I did pop in every once in while to see what Carrie and her gals were up to and wearing. I really enjoyed the fashions on the show. Sometimes it was with a loud “Oh no she didn’t!”.

When I saw the movie I was so

excited to see what Carrie’s bridal bouquet would look like. Boy, was I so disappointed! Her dress was incredible, her veil was incredible (bird on her head is still out to the judges) her bouquet was NOT! A bridal bouquet should compliment and elevate the bridal ensemble. Much like a beautiful piece of jewelry.

Carrie’s bouquet was sloppy, amateurish, half dead (note the petals on the ground) and ho-hum. The only thing good about her bouquet was it exploded quite nicely when Carrie used it to beat up Mr. Big.

What bouquet would I have designed? Maybe something like this (on the right):

I completely agree with you on this! The UGLY bouquet is all that you can see...not the dress, not Carrie nor the veil. It's not that difficult to hire a decent florist to design a fabulous one. I actually envisioned her holding a much more dramatic cascade...imagine how much more it will hurt when she smack Mr.Big with it?!

Carrie's bouquet was unbelievably atrocious! It in NO way measured up to the rest of her ensemble, let alone complimented it. Frankly, it looked like a kindergartener designed it...although I believe a 5 year old would have designed a more creative arrangement than what that sad mess of a bouquet looked like!
