I am getting married at Ladera resort next month. We are bringing our own photograhper and filmographer. Our wedding package includes an arch and I chose pink and white ginger lilies for that-- I originally chose pink bouganvillea when the original wedding was to be in Nov of last year--had to reschedule the date because of Hurricane Tomas, but was told April was not the time when pink bouganvillea was in season. For my bouquet I am doing different shades of pink orchids. What I did was to just send pics to the wedding planner that the resort provided with pics of the flowers I wanted and she could check with her florist to find out if they could get them. Did the same thing with the cake--just sent a pic of the one I wanted and they said they could do it. I also checked with the wedding planner at the resort that once I got to the island and went over everything and didn't like something if I could change things and she said yes to that too.

I'm getting married in St. Lucia on 11/11/11, and I although I love the idea (and end result) of a destination wedding, it has it's own set of stressors that are unique! I have a wedding planner, but I've found now, that I want to hear from real brides and not just the people selling me stuff!
What are you all doing about flowers? Any excellent photographer recommendations? My planner has us booked with Bill Mortley, who seems ok, but I have been wondering if there are others out there, who are great but less known. Have any of you stayed at Cap Maison? We are staying there, and I wonder what others' experiences may be.
Thank you ladies in advance, and I SO look forward to hearing from you!
