        Tlseege:  Thanks for making the other thread.  I had a question though, I think the pictures of the wedding with teal fabric at the gazebo and pink flowers is your wedding?  I was wondering if you had any pictures more close up of your bouquet, it looks very similar to what i want  (lilies and roses?). I just am hoping for more white roses in mine with more pink in the maid of honor bouquet.  I saw the pictures from Amore studios website, just wondering if you had anymore so I could get a better look, Thanks.

        Yup, that's my wedding :)

         

        Hmm... on this computer I don't have any better shots (I do at home though so I'll try and remember to post them).   Here is one shot, but I'm not sure if it helps too much.

        It was white lilies and then hot pink and light pink roses.

         

        The bridesmaids flowers were just the pinks with some green "stuff"

          Thanks!  It is gorgeous.

          I am really leaning towards lilies and roses for my bouquet, and that is the shape I was kind of imagining but had trouble finding photos on-line.  I am also hoping to have some lilies and roses put onto the cake along with some ribbon to wrap the bottom of each tier to give it a bit of colour.  I haven't got around to asking Jazmin yet but I have seen other cakes on here with ribbon so hopefully it isn't an issue. I just need to pick my flowers..then decided if I want to buy fake ones here to bring or get real ones there?  I don't really know what people usually put for flowers on cakes...  but if i buy real ones there they will for sure match the bouquet flowers.

            That is nice.  I much prefer the cakes with flowers, the standard cakes at GBP have been very plain to me.  So you brought the cake stand down and there was no problem for hem to use it?  I can't see why they would have trouble using extra things I bring down.  Also I forgot to ask, the ribbon around your bouquet, I thought you had said before you had brought it from home....did you give it to the wedding coordinator to put on your bouquet or did you just wrap it yourself once your flowers arrived?

            The cake was completely theirs.  I didn't bring the stand or anything.  I think I wish it would have been just stacked, but it didn't really matter to me.  What mattered was taste and everyone loved it.

             

            For the bouquet, I brought the ribbon and the pins along with me and I gave them to the coordinator.  They wrapped the flowers and gave me the leftover supplies back.
