    It is clear that your vision was soft, romantic, textural and they gave you bright, bold which is the opposite. The only thing these bouqets have in common is they are in the same hue of color. I probably would have complained upon receiving them.

    @ktcs:  yes! I would be furious they are nothing like your picture! Your reference is a delicate blush very timeless and the bright pink and yellow is nothing like that! I’m sorry you had to go through with this!

    @ktcs:  Honestly flowers were a huge thing to us and a big part of our budget. I would have been furious with the changes you mentioned and I would definitely contact the florist regarding the liberties they took. 

    Do you have emails or a contract detailing what you wanted? While it is took late to get new flowers I do thiink a small refund is in order considering the drastic difference in what you ordered versus what you got.

    No that is not even close. I would be raising a stink.

    @ktcs:  Hmm yeah look into it. Any thing would be good even an email, text, scrap of paper etc. Something to show that she screwed up with definite proof.

    You are NOT being a bridezilla, not at all. The yellow (sadly to say) is awful as you said. It is so far from what you clearly wanted. If I had seen yellow I would have also been incredibly upset. i am so sorry!

    To be really honest I would’ve been FREAKING out. Those are so hideous and look nothing like the picture you provided. I would want my money back!!! That’s really outrageous.

    Okay…. seriously?! You showed the florist the picture of that beautiful bouquet and thats what you ended up with???

    I feel that you should talk to the florist and express how disappointed you were. Show her the photos next to eachother. Maybe you can get a partial refund. I would tell her that there is no way you could reccomend her to a friend or anyone else.

    I would definitely complain. They didn`t even come close to your inspiration picture!

    I would complain. There’s absolutely nothing ‘bridezilla-ish” about wanting to get what you paid for!

    My flowers turned up and were really different from what we ordered. The bridesmaids were meant to have 3 cala lillies with some greenary and instead got possies of mainly roses. Mine was meant to be a traditional teardrop bouquet and was instead one I had to carry over my arm. Thankfully the ones I got were beautiful just not what I expected.

    Anyway I complained amd got a 25% refund, I probably could have got more but felt that as they were lovely, that was enough. So yes, I probably would complain if I were you. Good luck
