    I spent $140 on 4 bridesmaid bouquets. So mine were $35 each. I did roses with green hydrangeas in the middle of them.

    Oh yeah, the pictures that they show are just terrible, IMHO anyway. So I brought down inspiration pictures of flowers that I wanted which used the same flowers I had seen in the photos, but designed much prettier. These actually turned out EXACTLY like what I had in mind. I was so pleased! :)

          I also agree the pictures of the flowers the resort sent were not very impressive. What I did was find flowers that I liked and I would send them to my WC until I found flowers that were priced just right. I loved my flowers they were exactly what I wanted bright and tropical with a splash of white. The flowers were very fresh. Here are pictures of our flowers:

            Hey ladies,
            I wanted to let you know that my friend just returned from her honeymoon at Bahia Principe Coba...........she had soooooo many great things to say.....food was excellent (she said the buffet was so good that it was like having an a la carte meal)........the grounds are very clean......and the staff are super fun. She told me that if she could get married again, she would do it at the Bahia. This makes me even more excited to experience our wedding in the Mayan!

              That's awesome that your friend had such a wonderful time. I must echo her comments on the buffet too. I mean, I'm pretty easy to please, but there were SOOO many choices! It was AWESOME! So good. I loved eating there. Even their breakfast buffet was phenomenal. However, I suggest finding out which ala carte offers breakfast and eating there instead. It's still buffet, and has fewer options, but it's MUCH less crowded and the service is spectacular in these! :)

                I didn't know that a la cartes served breakfast. I'm not fussy so less selection wouldn't bother me. Thanks for the tip!

                Yeah, I think there is one ala carte per resort. In the Akumal section it's the ala carte (italian I'm pretty sure) that's right above the activity pool. It was awesome because we had a golden club room, so the breakfast buffet was just steps from our room! And then we could also grab our choice of lounge chairs while we were at it. Worked out awesome! :)
