    Are the options really crappy that come with the wedding package for flowers?

    Should I be expected to pay a few hundred dollars for flowers??

    Bride Groom - 2 standing on each side plus mother and father of the bride..

      You have your bouquet and grooms boutoniere as part of your wedding package. Your wc will send you a catalogue with loads of bouquets in. you can adapt these buy mixing and matching flowers/changing colors/shapes etc as long as they include the basic flowers in the brochure. Flowers included are roses, certain lilies, gerbera, and more. I didn't have to pay for mine and they were exactly what I wanted. I just sent a picture of what I wanted and went through it with the wc to make sure they had it right and they were lovely

      I think since you didn't really want flowers in the first place, you should just be good with the resorts choices' of flowers. I think people who reach out to outside florist are the ones who have a very particular taste with flowers and wanted a specific kind. You should be fine.

          Do you remember how much the average bridesmaid bouquet was?  Do you know if Calla Lillies or peonies were part of the options? thanks!

            We only had my bouquet, hubby's boutoniere (included in package) then ordered an extra boutoniere for my dad and best man and some rose petals for the flower girls. Our bill for these extras was $42. If you want to buy boutonnieres and corsages for all guests or have lots of bridesmaid bouquets to buy it could get costly.

            The predesigned options that come in the wedding brochure are really crappy!  But you can create beautiful designs with the flower options available. 

            For mine, bridal party bouquets weren't included.  So I paid $35 for each bridesmaid and the parents corsages (the corsages I used white orchids so they would match better with their dresses, which is why it was so expensive).  Groomsmen were around $12 I think??

              $35 is very reasonable.  Which flowers did you include in your bridesmaids bouquets?

                I know gerbera daisies are included in certain colours. I had fuschia colored gerbera, white roses and stargazer lilies with fuschia colour centre. All included in package. Wil get some pics on for you next week.

                  does anyone have a recent flower catalogue???

                  I can picture spending 200 or so extra if need be.

                    We did! we didnt even use the resort staff for the ceremony. we had our friend marry us :) it was no problems but we did have to pay the fees for the minister(we went with the unforgettable package)
