    Question regarding the flowers through the Dreams packages: I am interested in having very bright, vibrant flowers but would prefer real flowers. Do you think the dreams florist is capable of something like that? I read about them dying the flowers and it rubbing off on the bride's hands and the grooms suit! It just makes me a little nervous. What would you do if you wanted bright flowers like that? Anyone have pics of bright bouquets they got from the florist there? Thoughts?
    THANK YOU!

      Here is a picture of my bouquet...

      I asked Sandra a pale pink rose that gets darker towards the tips. With me, she spoke to her florist while I was there; I was able to hear her explain what I wanted.

        Did you just show Sandra some pics of what you were looking for then Annie? I am not really find of the ones in the wedding guide she sent me and am in search of some pics of what I am looking for.

          I just emailed Landy to ask about tropical flowers last week, I asked about the availability of bright pink hibiscus or fragipani (google them if you don't know what they look like). I haven't gotten an answer.

          In the meantime I went ahead and ordered with angels. she didn't have time to make them so I bought the stems and am having my aunt put them together.

          In the future, maybe you could post here: http://bestdestinati...com/forum/t7767 to keep all our questions together. I think it would be more helpful for future dreams tulum brides to have all the info in one place. Just a suggestion :)

          Edit: just noticed you did that!

            I recommend sending pictures. I wasn't too impressed with the selection in the wedding guide so I sent Sandra some pictures. My bouquet was almost identical to the picture of what I wanted. I didn't have a bright & vibrant bouquet so I won't post the pics here. My flowers were all white.

              Amy, yes I did send her a picture and like I said before, I was there when she was talking on the phone with the florist. The bouquet was exactly like I wanted it to be...but it was very simple ! One type of flower (roses) that is pretty much a classic bouquet

                Thanks guys. I'll ask Sandra if she can replicate it. I really want them to be bright and colorful or else i'd just do the fakeys... :)

                  Just for a personal note to myself, if I decide to go with a different flower than the options that come with the package(s), is there a fee included? I don't think the flowers are horrible, but I too am looking for a different angle--will this cost more to do so?

                  thanks

                    I think she'll check with the florist and then give you a quote. I have a feeling most things will be considered an "upgrage" (more money) but i'm just guessing!

                      This is correct. I sent one picture & Sandra quoted me $400 for the bouquet plus extra for the boutonnieres & corsages (she explained that it was difficult to get what I was asking for).
                      The 2nd picture I sent, she said no problem - I didn't pay anything over my package price. She actually didn't even charge me for the extra flowers we ordered (BM bouquet, hair flower & extra boutonnieres).
