You're going to look fantastic! And your dress will fit beautifully with a corset back! I've always loved that style, which is what mine is! lol

I love your flower choices.

 

I think they look great - and I would keep the blue elastic :P

 

I think the BM's bouquets look nicer with 5, just makes it a fuller bouquet.

Your bouquet is very unique in how you stacked the flowers. We had a bride on here not long ago that short of went for that style over the standard ones that are more in a 'circle'  haha excuse my lack of proper terminology.

Thank you @@calgarybride2015 :) I didn't have a shape for my bouquet in mind, I just wanted to find something that worked for my flowers even if it wasn't "circle" lol I don't know the terminology either. I was going to possibly add more smaller, closed roses and some extra greenery but I may not now. The roses came with detachable greenery that I could slide into the bouquet wherever. I'm so in love with the look of the big lilies and roses.

 

I'm in two minds with the BMs bouquets, I think I'm leaning towards the 3 only because then the lilies don't look squished. But all the opinions I've gotten so far say to go with 5.

I love the look of your bouquet, you did a fantastic job! I've never seen flowers arranged that way and I think it's a beautiful arrangement. The flowers and greenery compliment each other so well too!

 

As for the bridesmaids bouquet, I'm gonna go against the grain and say that I like the look of 3 the best. You can tell that they're calla lilies more with three than five. I agree with you about the, being squished a bit but regardless, both if them look great so you can't go wrong either way. How are you going to wrap the stems?

Thanks @@Wafflesmom! I've never seen a bouquet like mine either, I just played around until it looked nice. I'll most likely keep it this way but wanted to get some feed back. The view from the side is nice:

It shows off the lilies a bit.

I think the 3 stems is nice too! I'm so torn!

 

I was going to wrap the stems in either white ribbon, but now I'm thinking maybe silver to go with the silver bits I'm adding? Initially I was also thinking about just gluing them together and not using ribbon but still playing around with all that. Would love some feedback!

Ohhh I love the side view. I didn't realize what was on the other side.

 

I would use ribbon or something of the sort. I think it just finishes off the look!

@@calgarybride2015 I agree! Do you think silver would look nice? Like a translucent, mesh type? I'm probably not describing it right, I'll find a pic online lol

I've seen so many things done here over the past 1.5 years. I've seen the basic white or a solid color, I've seen patterns, jute, even wire. Anything will look great :) but am curious to see what you mean.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • 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
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
