Thanks Tamara...I will have to look at the apple green again. Im pretty sure the peach isnt close to the bridesmaid dresses...mine are the peach one in this picture....
Miss Jali girl please I went to Michaels and tried to make them before I ended up biting the bullet and just purchasing them through a vendor and it was an epic fail LOL. I think the really challenging part for the DIY bouquets is the quality of flowers you buy, I found that the ones Michael had looked cheap even the ones that were a bit pricey at nearly $9 a stem. It was fun to try and wrap the stem part and then do the whole pin thing but def nothing I thought would work or that I wanted to use. If you can find a vendor that has good real touch flowers at a decent price I would suggest making them. I couldnt find one and the ones I did find were pretty expense and would have cost me nearly as much as the professional ones. Well give or take.
Natalie: Did you try the Apple Green on their swatches, that looks pretty close to mint? They also have a peach color was that not close enough. I think to find the colors exact to is close to impossible, are they even remotely close? Mss Jalli is doing her site visit in May and I have my weddig in May I can probably bring you back an actual swatch as opposed to trying to match to the PDF if you want? I know your wedding is in June and might be cutting it close? Peach and grey are a great color combination, maybe just do the peach as your primary and then contrast with the mint. The contrasting color typically is just a splash her or there.
On another note: I am about to loose my mind with Susana. First they changed the DJ price to more than double of whats on my invoice, she quoted me $30 per centerpiece and now since I am 50 days away and trying to finalize my budget she raised that to now $50 per table! WTF! I feel like everytime I turn around they are raising prices! The Tangerine Package of $4000 is nearly at $6,000 as of now. Oh and she did finally say that we can use DJ Mannia if we book one night stay for him at the resort. But then she proceeds to say that I have to rent the equipment from the resort....really?! Ugh I need to step back because I feel a total Bitch mode moment coming on! DJ Mannia is $990 for 4 hours and the receptions at BBPD are 3 hours. I know we spoke about this already but how much is it per person for the additional hour and does anyone know if DJ Mannia comes with the MC services. Ya figure at $990 for the 4 hours plust minimum of one night stay $100 give or take I'm at $1,100 at this point. Ugh IDK what the fk to do or say...just super over budget and not getting any better!
