blooming 'ell

the bouquet is one thing i always wondered how it works with a wedding sari. a wedding sari is so embroidered, do you really see the flowers? the other side is, if you have a multi-coloured sari (especially the red & white combination that's so popular), what flowers do you carry to compliment your outfit yet make a small impact. bouquets are a western tradition.. not something typical of an indian wedding trousseau. the western wedding dress is typically white / off-white, so a bright coloured bouquet makes an impact, yet doesn't overpower the dress. so what's the indian equivalent?

(by the way, i'm in LOVE with this bouquet: a hand tied bouquet of mango mini calla lilies, rose hips, milva & black magic roses, cinnamon color cymbidium orchids and seeded eucalyptus, wrapped with bronze/chocolate ribbon that had embroidery detailing and sequins - GORGEOUS!)
