Help me pick my bouquet!

Recommended Posts

B!!! All the way! But wait... are those flowers TWO THOUSAND DOLLARS or is there a decimal somewhere between one of those 0s? If its 2k I say, screw it! Thats how much I pay for rent! OMG! Thats like a down payment on a car... or another nice vacation...thats less than the cost of airfare to Fiji and NZ. I wouldnt even pay 200 for those but thats me... you didnt ask me about what I thought of the price... Im sorry I went off. B is really really pretty...

I like the tightness of option D...but I'm a sucker for callas as well. I was told the same thing by my WC...so we went with silk arrangements. I love the colors you chose with the white and green. They are all beautiful options!

We named a prison after a calla lily! LOL

Amy- I voted for C. I think it's so elegant and gorgeous. Plus it has the same type of look as the other bouquets IMO. You really can't go wrong.

HOWEVER, if you really love your calla lilies, you should get them. :)

Thank you so much ladies!!! I loved, loved option B, as many of you, but I felt that $200 was too much to spend on one bouquet, so I decided on C and asked for green orchids (as in D) instead of Hortensias (since these die fairly quickly in the heat).

 

Maura- Its funny b/c I asked for Calla lilies and my WC suggested Alcatrazes as an alternative b/c they were more affordable. However, I am not a huge fan of this type of lily. Its rounded instead of coming to a green point like the others. In the pic, the flower is cut to a point I believe??

 

Anyhow, thanks again. And if it were not for the price, I would have chosen option B.

Yay! I voted for C!

 

I love alcatraces as well, yes they are calla lilies, so I got them for my BMs. Orange callas for me would have been imported from Holland and very expensive.

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
