    I’ve noticed that all the brides have such beautiful bouquets, I’ve seen that many brides have taken their flowers with them,
    is that because the ones RUI provides are not that pretty or just too expensive?
    And for the brides who took their flowers with them, how did you carry them?

    I’m sorry if I’m repeating questions, I’m just trying to figure all this stuff out.

    Thanks

        I put my bouquet in the the garmet bag with my dress so it wouldn't get squished.

              For me, it was the combination of expense and what I wanted. The basic flowers at Riu did not meet my theme and wants for the wedding. I was okay with some of the upgrade options... but they were really expensive. I went with AA because I could the bright, tropical look I wanted at a better rate than the upgraded stuff. Plus, I decided to get bridesmaid bouquets and will potentially use them for reception centerpieces. And I can keep mine and bring it back home for memory sake.

                I used Tai flower. I had 12 mango and cream roses in my bouquet and my BM had 6. They were beautiful. It cost us 200$ for my bouquet, 3 BM bouquet and my Hubby boutoniere. It was worth it !!!

                  Thats so sweet.

                  I'm really looking into AA flowers, the colors are so bright and tropical, so pretty.

                  Thanks!

                    I made my own flowers because we were on a tight budget. i was able to get more for my $ and now I can keep them forever and say I made them!

                      crawford2B I love your flowers, I wanted to go with the bright tropical colors after I seen you pictures. You did a great job on them.
