Other than the "ghost shot", by far the best is the B&W of her smiling, with the flowers shown in full color. I don't think the last one (your favorite) is very flattering.

I LOVE the ghost bride shot.
It really speaks to the mood you are trying to create.
As for the others shots, b&w really sells well for wedding shots and what matters most, is what the client likes.
Back when I shot weddings, I always had a camera loaded with b&w.
Cheers.

Iuse adobe photo deluxe although I have just about every program there is adobe is my personal favorite. I had to learn this since it is the most popular request from my brides. It's really not that complicated, and really does require sitting down and spending time to get familiar with your software and learning every little trick.

With adobe I open up the picture I want, change it to black and white. ...open up the same photo again leaving it in color. I go to change background which allows you to cut around object...onceI have done thisI use eraser to smooth edges around bouquet....delete background and drag and drop the bouquet onto the black and white shot. Hope this helped. I am not familiar with software you use but most programs have similiar steps.. Hope this helped.
