to start a thread to post pics of “What You Wanted vs. What You Got.”
I kept in mind that while I was planning my wedding that the pics I gave my florist and to the baker may or maynot become exactly what I asked for.
1st pic is my bouquet & 2nd is inspiration pic. (I thought they repicated pretty well)

1st ones are of my cake & 2nd is inspiration:
I REALLY wanted the white orchids and the green buds with only a couple of the colored orchids. They told me that they could do an exact replica. It obviously has no white orchids on it, but it still came out pretty and was the most delicious wedding cake I ever had.

What I got:
I did have gerberas in mine at first too, but when I went to pick it up the morning of the wedding, I hated how it looked with the ones they had put in, so I had them redo it with red roses. I like how it ended up.
What I got;
I ok’ed the cake being round instead and the different tiers… but.. the rest of it was still pretty disappointing.
