- Wedding: October 2016
I had my follow up with the florist last weekend, and she typed up and sent over the udpated quote. This is what I sent her and what we talked about in our meeting:
Fave bouquet but asked for more red:
But less vine-y and with hanging amaranthus like this bride’s:
And then I threw this pic in for colors:
These are just a few, I sent her a link to my entire pinterest board. And overwhelmingly, they’re like the first two. The quote she sent back has my bouquet listed as “a very natural hand tied bridal bouquet (not big and branchy) with many different textures and white & red flowers. White roses, lisianthus, spray roses, red dahlias, Juliet roses, Italian ruscuss, silver dollar, seeded eucalyptus, red hanging amaranthus.”
So she gets the “textures” and the ruscus, eucalyptus and amaranthus that we talked about. White roses, lisianthus, spray roses and juliet roses (the peach in the first pic) are fine. But where are the other reds besides the dahlia? I told her that I love the mix of darker and lighter reds. And to be honest, the only pic that has dahlia is the last one and it still has other reds in it besides that, which is the only reason it was included to show the mix of reds together. I’m having a hard time seeing the reds out of this description. Right now, it sounds like white and peach with some dahlias and amaranthus thrown in, and maybe there would be enough of them for balance but I am having a hard time picturing the blend.
Do you think this is an accurate reflection? I was thinking about asking about red garden roses or ranunculus or a red peony. I worry she focused too much on the last pic and not enough on the rest of the board because that is basically the only one with dahlias. I like them, but it has a more rustic vibe than I think I was going for.
