For some reason I thought they'd send you a picture of what they can do to meet your requests... A DFTW hasn't even been decided on for me yet and that's making me nervous!

PookieB - I'm sorry you weren't happy with your bouquet - it did look beautiful though!

Here was mine, it was about 2 dozen ivory roses and about 1 dozen red spray roses. I didn't want any greenery. They wrapped the "stems" in ivory ribbon with a hidden Mickey, which I didn't even notice until the next day! It was just what I envisioned so I was happy with it. I remember it was very, very heavy!

with the exception of Carrie's bouquet, i see lots of Roses. Does Disney tend to push you towards roses, or is that just what you all prefereed?? I want more tuplis and Calla lilies, with just a few roses...

I'm not really a flower person so I just went with the roses. However I knew I didn't want only roses so I was very excited that they were about the add the colored hydrangea. I was a little worried about not knowing exactly how it would look, but I was very happy with the final product.

I specifically asked for something bright and colorful! And while I love roses, I wanted other flowers too. I loved my bouquet!!!

These were the flowers that I requested:


And to refresh your memory, this is what I ended up with:


Don't get me wrong, I loved them, but they weren't exactly what I asked for.

Roses are a lot cheaper than tulips, which have a very short season. They may tell you tulips will be hard to get or too expensive, but I bet they can do it - they found my dahlias out of season and I paid about what everyone else's bouquets seem to cost....

Originally I wanted gardenias and a few ivory roses (which was my grandma's bouquet 70-some years ago) but my DMIL is highly allergic to gardenias so I couldn't do that. But I knew I wanted ivory something. Tulips are my favorite flower but I just didn't want them in my bridal bouquet and I can't really say why not, I just didn't - strange I know So ivory roses it was! Then I decided to put some red in my bouquet since my gown was ivory and our colors were ivory and burgundy. It just needed a "pop" of color. Rosie from Disney Floral suggested red spray roses and honsetly at that point I figured she knew best and I love how it turned out!

I chose simple and romantic cream colored roses and left the colors to the girls! Their bouquets had roses and dendrobium orchids.

I'm rather plain. I pretty much only wanted calla lillies. Disney suggested that they be mini ones so that they wouldn't be too heavy or overwhelming. Turned out to be what I wanted! I had the "mickey" buttons on the stems, and mickey crytals in the bouquet for mine and MOH.



Here are the BM's flowers. They had champagne roses.

We had a whimsical bouquet which my wife arranged to her specifications....sorry it's not a true close-up. It was STUNNING, and very heavy.
