This is certainly not earth shattering!

We have a small wedding this evening and I had decided to use a different florist for the flowers this time. DH picked them up yesterday, so I couldn't make any changes with the florist directly because I wasn't there. Here are 2 pictures of the small wedding bouquet.

I'm thinking I should tear it apart and rearrange it. It seems to tall and not really bouquet like. Mind you, I paid $30 for this. $10 for the boutinneire.

What say you...leave it or tear it apart??

Those roses are way past prime. I hope you don't use that florist again. Or warn them you were not satisfied.

 i think it's pretty.  just needs more baby's breath and tighten up the ribbon around the stems.

This is what I get for $35 - $25 for the bouquet (6 roses) and $10 for the boutonniere

Yes. This is lovely. Simple elegance, as I like to say Smiling

Yes! That looks lovely and is priced right.

I could actually do the whole thing myself for $20, but I'm willing to pay more for the convenience of having them do it. Believe me, this weird one is never happening again!

That's more what it should look like!

Ok, so it's not just me! I'll redo them. There are only 2 florists in my area, and I decided to try the other one because the first one after months and months of me asking to have them add our link to their website vendors list and like us on FB, they have done nothing. I took their name off our website and stopped doing any shares on our FB page.

It's amazing when little local businesses think that it's not a two way street!

SAD but that is how most are. 

Your newly arranged bouquet was very nice.  If you stay with this 2nd florist, show them that picture and say that is how you want it.  - Also sad they did not know in the first place!

Well, that's disappointing.  Did the new florist know it was for a bride to carry?  Well, yes, I guess they did since they did the boutonniere.  I would try to rearrange it.  If you think it's odd, she's going to think so also. And I would call the florist tomorrow.

It's doesn't look right to me either. I would think that in bouquet all the flowers would be at the same level, not staggered.

Yes, and not very well done either. All that's holding them together is that ribbon/bow and it's not tight. At the very least, I'm going to have to put a rubber band under the bow to help keep them in place.
