I got my bridesmaid dresses from the Bay (Southgate) for $97 each. BCBGeneration.

I got the veil and flower addition to the dress at Delica (where I bought the dress). Veil was about $200 and the flower was about $75. There are swarovski crystals in the center of both, and they are Sara Gabriel brand.

Ladies, I need some advice.  I ordered a real touch bouquet from Bloom Bridal with orchids hanging down the side and here are the approval pics.  Please offer any suggestions you may have.

This was my inspiration pic for shape only, not colors.

1st Approval pic, top view, before trailing orchids are added.  Love this!

And with the orchids added, really hate the orchids and don't think the color of the trailing orchids match the bouquet very well.

When I saw your top view, I immediately thought, what a gorgeous tropical colour combination! Oh and I love your crystal starfish detail as well :) I agree with you though, that something is off about the trailing orchids; first off I would recommend maybe making the trailing orchids less sparse and maybe in 1 or 2 areas of the bouquet as in your sample picture; also, I think the orchids should be in the colour of either your deep orange (don't know if orchids even exist in that colour) or in the deep fuschia of your other flowers.

 

Your wedding is so close...you must be so excited...and a little stressed? Good luck :)

I kinda like the subdued colour combination. I agree with tkuzma though. It seems like the trailing orchids aren't hanging as nicely as the ones in the inspiration pic. It's like the stems are too stiff or something.

Wow, your wedding is super close! Exciting!

tkuzma-- I've been planning since early March. Things all happened very fast once we got an amazing quote in from one tour company and wanted to secure it. This site gave me pretty much every good idea I've had. And I haven't lived in Lister, but I 'm still at the U of A... going on year 6 hehe.

Hmmmm...I love the top part too but I agree that there is something not quite right with the trailing orchids...perhaps not bright enough...too heavy looking?  But I LOVE the top round with the starfish!!!

Agreed.

 

Have you thought about white orchids for the trailing ones? And fewer? Otherwise, I agree with whoever said the darker colour.

They do seem too heavy looking. Beautiful, but doesn't really seem to match the rest of the bouquet.

I agree with the other ladies, the colour of the dangling orchids seems to be the issue.  The orchids look more purple-pink whereas your bouquet is pink/orange themed...can Bloom Bridal change the orchids out to a different colour that better suits the rest of the bouquet?

 

I LOVE the look of the bouquet from the top view, especially the starfish!

White orchids are what I originally requested but the only white orchids they had were too short to trail down properly.  I have sent her an email letting her know that I really don't care for the current orchids so I'm waiting patiently to hear back.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
