    I ordered my silk flowers online (AA was fully booked so i had to go elsewhere). I just got a sample pic of what my bouquet looks like (except it will have chocolate satin instead of the green)

    I don't know if i like it all that much. It looks kinda fake to me and I don't like the fillers. What do you guys think. Please give me your HONEST opionions.

      The fillers make it look fake.. Ask them if they can arrange it differently maybe?

        I actually think its beautiful. If you dont like the fillers I would definietly ask for them to take it out, either way it look pretty.

          I am not really all that sure what I think. I am not a huge fan of the brownish color of the flowers, they look like they are passing on to the other side (dying). Everything else seems pretty nice. Do they have other bouquets you like?

            That's the thing........it wasn't suppose to be brownish......i asked her for Mango cala lillies......it's suppose to have an orange tone. I didn't see any on her site that I liked in particular so i just told her the kind of arrangement that I wanted and she sent this to me.

              I am not really that crazy about it either. The colors seem off to me, like you and Steph said. Why don't you send her some pictures that AA had or you've seen elsewhere and ask her to match it?

              I've seen mango calla lillies before and they are beautiful. I am not knowledgable by any means about flowers, but I don't like this color.

              One the bright side, I like the bit of orange poking thru!

                My thoughts exactly. I love mango calla lillilies as well... but these ones defintely seem more brown. And I don't actually mind the fillers - adds a little pop of color. But ultimately you need to be happy with it! I would give them an email with your concerns and see what your options are.

                  What I would do is find photos of ones you like and ask her to re-create them.
                  Here are some. Not sure what your other colors are but here is a start:

                    I just sent her an email and she is going to send me another sample tomorrow. She said that the cala's are actually more orangy, but it's hard to tell from the picture. Here is what the mango ones look like on her website:

                    I sent her an inspiration picture in the very beginning. I hope i like the new sample better. On the bright side, she was very nice and really wants to make me happy, so that is good!

                      Just remember pictures are important.. you don't want your flowers looking brown in all your wedding pictures!!
