    Specifically for centerpieces I like the container in one but the flowers in the other, I am so nervous this will become lost in translation!

     

    I found that they did a really good job with the flowers.  I suggest being SUPER specific on the 2 month form because it sounds like a lot of girls have had problems before me.  I included photos of exactly what I wanted and acceptable alternative flowers in case the ones I wanted weren't in season.  I also forbid certain flowers like babies breath and daisies that I didn't want at the wedding. 

     

    These are the photos I included on my 2 month form that I found on the internet, and you can see above what I ended up with:

    bridesmaid bouquet?

     

    bridesmaid bouquet option

    (For the BM bouquet I requested spider mums as an alternative to the greenery found in these and more purple--I thought they really delivered!)

     

    If all else fails or you have second thoughts, the wedding coordinator double checks everything at your initial appointment.  You can always bring more photos or specifics at that time.  :)

      yours came out beautifully- what are the white flowers in your bridesmaid bouquet? I am not as concerned with the flower type as I want primarily roses (though I put no lilies...will probably say no gerber daisy too) I am more concerned with color as I want very light blushes, ivory etc. and am afraid with it being Mexico it will be a little too vibrant for my style.

        I think it was a type of rose, but I'm not 100% sure.  Those would definitely be pretty as a blush/ivory bouquet!  The other bride who was there during my stay had the same color scheme, so I think they can tone it down if that's what you're wanting.  Feel free to use the picture in your 2 month form and tell them that's what you want. :)

          Did you have to pay extra for flowers outside the packet they send??

            Nope, I think as long as you are being reasonable they won't have a problem with tweaks to the flowers.

              Oh good!  I was worried I was stuck with the options in the brochures lol.  I haven't even googled for photos of bouquets I like, ooh fun something else to look at!

                :)  Good luck!  Let me know if anyone else has questions.  I'll probably stop checking as often pretty soon since it's all over.....

                    Hi Ladies,

                    Some of my professional photos are starting to trickle in, so I thought I'd share!  

                     

                    Ballroom set up with 4 tables + sweetheart table.  The centerpiece shown below is the one included in the DoL package.
