Flower dilemma...PLEASE help me decide!

Recommended Posts

The one thing that I absolutely can't decide on and that is making me crazy is my flower problem. There are 3 choices. Please tell me which one you think is best. I am leaving this in BDW's hands to decide because I'm going crazy!

 

(1) Get the flowers from RIU. For $35 each I can get either carnations or daisies (not what I really want) for my 8 bridesmaids and 1 beautiful but ridiculously expensive (about $180) of gerber daisies (what I want) for myself. I could get my bridesmaids better flowers, but I would spend more than $1000 on bouquets alone.

 

(2) Get the flowers from Kreations Florist. I found this florist online (Jamaican Yellow Pages). They can get me all 9 bouquets of gerber daisies and deliver them to the RIU for less than $600. I am wary of doing this because no one else I know has used them, I'm worried they won't actually arrive at the RIU and I don't like sending money beforehand to a company that I know nothing about.

 

(3) Use parasols for the bridesmaids and just get the 1 bouquet of gerber daisies that I really love from the RIU for myself.

 

Seriously, whatever gets the most votes, I will do. Thanks girls (and guys)!

I say #3 - only because I remember how excited you were about the parasols AND that way you can get the bouquet you really really want! $1000 for flowers that you guys are going to use for 1/2 hour? I mean really........

I voted #3! ( and it is what I plan on doing for myself as well)

 

Unless flowers are a complete must... I think we can all think of many better ways to spend $1000! Get the beautiful ones you want for yourself and some bright/fun parasols for your girls. I actually polled my own BMs with this question... and they all voted for parasols! :)

I also vote for #3...I'm leaning towards using the parasols myself so that influenced my decision but also, I agree with the earlier comment, do you really want to spend 1k on flowers that will be forgotten about in 1/2 hour? And option #2 I would never do esp. since you dont know anyone who has used that company, its too risky. GO parasols!! cheer2.gifcheer2.gifcheer2.gif

So I voted for the last option Lizz.

I think it's important that you get the bouquet you love for yourself.

My sister didn't end up getting any of the flowers she wanted in the end (not DW) and she is still upset about it! They were beautiful in my opinion, but they were not what she wanted.

 

I was concerned with what the resort was going to be able to provide for us since I didn't like any of their options, but they were absolutely will to work with me.

 

So in my opinion, get what you really want for you and I think the parasols is a cool different idea for BMs.

    • Hundreds of years before, the basic jewellery were made out of seashells and bone, trees and animal skin. In the ancient times, the Egyptian jewellery first came into existence. Egyptian culture inhabited technology, gemstones, and precious metals early in comparison to other places. They were inspired by the culture of royalty and aristocracy which led to thinking noble like having a deep appreciation for luxury. This made them create impactful jewellery and leading trends. Copper was the first metal that came into existence through which we as humans got so many jewellery items.  However, the major focus on jewellery came when they discovered gold. This allowed the Egyptian to rule as the first jewellery maker. The ancient Egyptians valued adornment and were worn by both men and women.  Material and metals: The plethora of material which was used in the making of this Egyptian jewellery was basically gold and silver. Egyptian has mostly attracted towards gold and the availability of silver was less in Egypt as compared to any other place. The colour variation was due to the mixing of elements such as alloys like copper, iron, silver into gold.  Charm jewellery: It was then also an interesting concept to have charms in necklaces, bracelets and other jewellery items. It’s just they were made up of stones and precious or semi-precious jewellery. In this picture above the necklace is adorned with precious stones in different charms shapes. Gem and stones: The more royal pieces of Egyptian jewellery were adorned with the precious jewellery items. The gemstones were semi-precious stones, precious stones are other various gems. The most prized stone were lapis lazuli, rock crystal, and pearls. Emeralds were also found in these jewellery pieces. These were made from ground quartz and then molded into expensive gemstones. They are also used as charm jewellery when molded or carved in different shapes.
