Bouquets

Recommended Posts

Has anyone that had a real bouquet, bring their bouquet back home with them? I was wondering if anyone had any problems bringing it back or not. Our ceremony is on a Monday and we are leaving on Wed, so I figured the bouquet should still look good. Any opinions?

 

TIA

I don't think you can bring it back to the US on an international flight, you can always put it in your suitcase but if they open it and find your bouquet, they will ask you to throw it away.

 

At least, that is what they do with food.

No, you cannot bring your bouquet back over the border. BUT, a few girls have managed to sneak theirs back home. When we flew out of Cabo, they searched everyone's suitcases before checking them, so it may be difficult!

I didnt even think of this!!

 

omg,.. I've been on the fence about whether or not to go with fake or real flowers, and I really wanted to make a shadow box with the items from my wedding (my friend made one and it is absolutely gorgeous), and if I don't have my bouquet in there it would really be a bummer. guess I better start my search!!

Hi

 

Actually, you CAN bring your bouquett to the US, you don't need to hide it or anything, but you might want to keep it in your luggage, not carry on, and find something to keep it safe from getting smashed.

 

The main reason why customs don't let you bring some stuff over to Mexico or USA, is pollution or insects that might be on the flowers, fruits, etc... in this case, the flowers are already dead, sounds nasty but it is, it takes days for a flower to loose its beauty, but since they've been cleaned, used, put on water, stay out in the sun, all the bugs fly out of it, since they need fresh flowers to stay alive.

 

You might find a cardbox or talk with your WC or FLorist to arrange a box in order to take your flowers with you.

 

Usually, most brides take their flowers with them, and up to this day, there's never been any trouble with the flowers.

 

Hope this helps.

 

Cheers

 

PS.- My FI has been a WC to over 300 brides, and none of them have ever complained about this issue

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
