    WOW! I worked with Roberta @ plumeriasweddingflowersboutique.com for my own flowers, and the photo was spot-on to what I received! I wonder what happened, because she is such a pro, and all of her work I've seen has been phenomenal....I'm so sorry she dropped the ball with your order!!

    I agree 100% with the other ladies that you should let her know (as firmly but delicately as you'd like, because she is very sweet and great to work with) that you are confused as to why you received what appears to be a bouquet using a different color palette entirely from the one pictured in the photo. Some sort of credit should be issued or a portion of your money returned, because frankly, you did NOT get what you paid for (whether you asked her to removed a few orchids or not, the other colors shouldn't have been effected!)

    She should ABSOLUTELY send you a few stems of the orange hibisbus you originally requested free of charge, but since you are so close to when you have to leave, I think your idea to hand-paint the orange color onto some of the hibiscus might save the day, in case the make-up flowers don't arrive before you have to start packing. The only thing that might not work with that is that the real-touch material might not "accept" the paint -- it might just bead up and roll off because of the "waxy" surface, so be careful if you decide to try this!

    Oh, and to answer your question, NO -- YOU ARE NOT A BRIDEZILLA whatsoever! You are just someone who wants to get the product she paid for and who can blame you?!

    These flowers are going to be in almost every picture taken of you, on *the* MOST photographed day of your life! You have every right to want them to be perfect! I'm sure Roberta would be mortified if she knew that this mistake was worrying one of "her brides", and I betcha she'll be MORE than happy to do whatever is necessary to make it right for you!

      I think if you can contact the seller and express to her how you feel and see if she can send you some replacement hibiscus' you're not being a bridezilla at all there is a noticeable difference. If there isn't enough time perhaps you can head to a local craft store and like one of the ladies said sneak in some more vibrant flowers. I don't suggest painting it. Good luck and let us know how things turn out.

            I think it's a very pretty bouquet, but it's definitely not what you asked for. I would ask them to rush a new one or replacement flowers. There's nothing wrong with that. I'm sure they have to make adjustments all the time and it won't be a big deal. I bet you can get them to expedite one with no problems if you show the picture of what you requested and what you got. They obviously made a mistake and any good business would be more than willing to fix it in time for your wedding.
            Good luck!

                I absolutely would let them know the flowers are not what you want. I'm assuming you sent her that picture in the beginning and told her that's what you want, so I don't see how anyone would blame you for not being happy with them. They are pretty but the colors are all wrong!

                    I would definitely contact the seller and have them send what your ordered and what appeared in the trial photos. They did not deliver what was promised.

                      i am with the other ladies, if you are not completely satisfied let the seller know. show the 2 different photos and explain why you are unhappy. It is very clear that is does not look anything like the original. If it is too late to redo your bouquet, see if she is able just to send a few stems to add color (someone already mentioned it before but i forgot who lol) Good Luck
