Post your bouquet and inspiration pics here

Recommended Posts

You have to really be sure to get REAL real touch flowers, silks and other "faux" flowers are just not the same!  I have posted my centrepiece but not on the centre piece thread, prolly one of the canadian threads.  I wanted height so I have opted for 8" hurricane vases that will be filled with sand and shells on the top and in them will be 3.5ft grasses like reeds thats I picked up.  Sounds really strange but I really like the look of it, its very natural and different from traditional flowers or candles.  We are having one long table so height in the centrepiece was important to me while still allowing people to talk around it!

Please excuse if you have posted on that thread, there are so many pages within I wouldn't know where to start! The composite flower is indeed gorgeous, I don't think I have seen one before and definitely looks like a peony to me.  It is so easy to get caught up in all the details that we plan that we lose sight of our original vision or stray away from it... To be able to bounce ideas of eachother, beyond great! This board has been most helpful for that, especially when you have "laid back" fiance's ;)

I love the brightness the Orange adds!

I want my bouquet to look like this...

Then my MOH would have a smaller version, and I'd like the other girls to have just Tiger Lilies. Do you think that would look stupid??? Just Tiger Lilies in a bunch with maybe some white ribbon? Should I keep the orange ribbon for everyone? Thanks!!! Everyone's flowers look amazing. :)

Jwed - Is the picture from a bride on BDW? I like the bracelet the bride is wearing and want to know where she purchased the bracelet.

@Brendee2005- I love the orange too! My mom was afraid white would blend in with me, but when you add the orange, it really pops!

 

@JetsettinBride- Ya know....I'm pretty sure it is from a BDW bride's inspiration pics, but I cannot remember what thread I got it from. I don't think it was the wedding of the girl who had the picture. I think she must have downloaded it from somewhere else. Sorry...I'm no help!

I can picture it and it sounds outstanding! Very creative and I love the height of them.  I would think even more so to go with the callas as your centerpieces are simple but elegant (I'm all about flow)  I may have to hunt through the canadian threads to sneak a peak... I can only imagine how many there are though, there are a lot of "you" on here :)

As for real real touch flowers, didn't even know!! Apparently all the sites I've seen haven't been real because they've looked fake to me! I'll definitely have to search some more, just got my quote today for my bouquet at 150/200 CI dollars so 180/240 US dollars... ouch!

The prices KILL ME!!!!!  MY bouquet is included in the wedding packages but I am not sure I can get what I want so I would rather do real touch and be sure.  Plus I don't want to carry real and my girls carry real touch and it be a noticeable difference at least if they are all the same then no one will be able to tell.  I will get the "real" bouquet from the resort and either use it as the toss bouquet or for some other decor...... 

 

I will post a picture of my centrepiece in the centrepiece thread! I will be excited to hear what you think of it!!!!

    • 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. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
