I'm not a past bride - but I'm currently dealing with my flower situation for my wedding next year.
I agree- the sample pics they send are pretty bad. So what I ended up doing was sending pics of exactly what I wanted to my WC
Unfortunately the prices she gave me were absolutely outrageous! ($570 alone just for my bouquet!)
So - I did some research on the threads here and i've discovered Maya Diseno Floral - Marvin - is the main guy - and he's out of Playa Del Carmen
I sent him the exact same pics of all the flowers i want (Bouquets, boutonniers, etc) and his quotes were $1000 cheaper!! No joke. The resort is a total rip off. I would check into Marvin for your wedding.
He's pretty good at replying promptly AND best of all...he'll make up samples and send you pics!!!

1) I don't really know flowers, and overall really am not that particular, other than the fact that I don't like any of the examples they sent in the booklet (have they not updated it since like the early 90s?) If I send a few pictures to my WC of the general idea I am looking for and tell her the color palatte, do you think they will do a decent job? Or should I make a definitive decision and track down the names of flowers and an exact photo?
2) We are staying in the Akumal and I want to make sure we get an ocean facing room... do I need to request this through my travel agent or through my WC? Or both?
Um... I feel like I had more questions but can't think of them at the moment.... oh well, I just post again when I do think of them.
Thanks for all your help!
