    Okay so I'd like to think I'm a creative person. I've done most of the wedding stuff by myself and am completely happy with it....except my own bouquet! It's ugly and everyone I show it to agrees....although they aren't that hursh! What do I do? I can't figure out how to upload pictures on here...they aren't the right format so I can't show them to you. Bascially they are all one color and the same flower. My color is the Watermelon color from David's Bridal...my flowers are close to that color. My bridesmaids and flower girls are taken care of. Does anyone have any suggestions on anyone who does good work at the last minute? My wedding is March 4th in Cozumel. We leave for our cruise on Feb. 27th! I don't want to pay a lot of money, but willing to pay about $100 for the bouquet at this point. Please help!

      Awww sweetie, is it really that bad? Sometimes we are our own harshest critics. You should post a pic and maybe we can all give you some feedback on how to "fix" it??

      BUT if not ~ then I highly suggest looking at Roberta's work from Plumera Wedding Flower Boutique. I started working with her about 2 months ago and she is an absolute doll!! Not to mention her prices are so reasonable.

      Here's a link to her website, which features a package that can be sent out in 3 days. It's $135 including insurance and shipping fees and would probably work well with your colors: PlumeriasWeddingFlowerBoutique

      If that set doesn't work, here's a link to her ebay site that has tons of beautiful wedding bouquets all in the $110 range, give or take. These I believe can also be sent out on short notice: eBay Store - Plumeria's Wedding Flower Boutique: Silk Wedding Bouquet Sets, Wedding bouquets, Silk Flowers

      Like I said, she has been great with so far, and her products look beautiful. There are a few BDW members on here who have used her too!

      I hope this helps give you some options ~ don't stress it will all work out As your day nears everything will fall into place

          Check out the link on my siggy for help on how to do things in the forum (It's a thread with shortcuts to all the helpful links, one of which is how to upload photos).

          I was going to say exactly what MarieSam said, we are our own worst critics. Show us what they look like and perhaps we can offer some suggestions. Otherwise, you might even take them to a local florist and ask them to make an arrangement out of the flowers that you have already (unless it's the flowers that you hate, then I would call one of the companies suggested above). Good luck!

                    That is a beautiful set, I absolutely LOVE the plumeria and orchid mix! Are you going to use the hair flowers? I think they would look gorgeous in your hair. Now you'll have to keep us posted when the flowers actually come in ~ I'm so glad it all worked out Now go and enjoy that wedding!!!!
