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:
(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.
