    Sure they exist.  I had one!  You can see a picture of it in my resort review under my siggy.  I just told them my colors (magenta and coral) and let them pick the flowers.  If I had brought inspiration pictures, they would have worked around that too.  My bouquet was HUGE.  I don't know how big it comes across in the picture but it was quite large.  The key to staying in the $50 range is being flexible with which flowers you have.  If they're in season and local you'll have no problem. 

     

    Amybermuda (past bride) had a custom bouquet done for very cheap.  She used a thread on here that's all about which flowers are in season at certain times.  I don't know the thread but you can PM her for details.  A picture of it is somewhere in this thread, but you'll have to go back to posts from May/June of this year to find it!

    I too would LOVE to see an actual $50 bouquet.  Doesn't seem like they actually exist.  haha

      I found Amybermuda's planning thread.  It has a picture of her bouquet plus her inspiration pics she gave them.  You'll have to PM her for the price but I do remember it was ridiculously cheap!

        Thanks!  totally going to look into this.  I was so upset that every bouquet I suggested got back the super expensive quotes. 

        That is why this forum ROCKS

I'm still hearing from Kiara, but some people have said she doesn't work there anymore?
         

        My TA confirmed this morning Kiara has left. So now I am waiting to hear who my next WC is. Mind you, we really have not started the planning. All we have so far is the email with the links to the menus, flowers, etc.

         

        I can't wait to meet up and watch a few other weddings! What are you doing in terms of colors? I know we are using turquoise, green and white. I plan on bringing down laterns to hang for the reception. As for other details...haven't gotten there yet. LOL

        I've had really good luck with setting a "conference call" with my WC. If I lock her down for a certain day/time a month, she always makes it. I just detail all the questions I have or ideas and she updates my detail sheet. I get the idea that they don't like booking to recepiton or rehearsal dinner locations so early in advance. Oh well! We have to, to get what we want ladies!!

         

        I just want everyone to know that this site has been so great for me. I love coming home from work and connecting with other people who are going through the same thing. My FI is VERY happy too!   Thank you all for being there!


         

        Great advice Michele! Once I have a new WC, I think I will try to arrange a conference call.

         

        And I agree with you about this being an amazing resourse. Most of my ideas, and knowledge comes from here. It keeps me in the 'know' , and then I can chase after my TA for the deals, and like now, trying to get assigned to a new WC.

          I too have Carolina and had to remind her a few times to update my detail sheet.  I dunno what to say about the WCs these days.  I can only assume they are insanely busy but I agree that it's frustrating because it doesn't really feel like they're actually there to help you.  Just to document or reiterate prices from lomas.



          I started booking details right when I booked with AS.  But I don't think you need to worry really.  While some of us like to do everything ahead of the game I don't think it's anything to be concerned about.  You've got plenty of time.  But yes, someone at Karisma should be your wedding coordinator and your contact point for making your decisions/plans
           


           


          The one thing I would say about the WCs is that if you are having a hard time getting in touch with them, put your TA on it!!!  That's what they are there for!!  Anytime I have a question that I need answered quickly, my TA e-mails Fabio and he responds within a day.  I think all of us brides stress them out and they feel more inclined to respond to another "professional" in the wedding "business."

            Holy Smokes...this thread is on a roll today! 

             

            Michele - This conference call is a great idea!  Do you send a confirmation email afterwords detailing everything she said?  All of the WCs are going to be confused tomorrow when they all get requests to set up conference calls!  hehe.

             

            This thread really is a major stress reliever.  FI loves it too, since I don't bug him with every little tiny question/comment anymore...I bug you guys instead :)

                Hmm, well, sounds like your doing well then!  I have my dress, sent invites early instead of invitations, have picked our menu (but not selected w/the resort), picked our ceremony/reception location (just emailed today to try and get the sheet going), and looking for shoes, bouquets, jewelry, etc.  I feel like a lot of stuff I have to wait to see our final head count.  Like the OOT bags, excursion ideas, etc. 

                 

                Speaking of shoes, I am trying to find hot pink heels under 4 inches.  It's a tricky task!! :o)  But, plenty of time!!

                Speaking of......I feel like there are some things I should be doing, but am kind of in a lull for planning.  Any suggestions for what can be done at this point May 2011 brides???  I have dress, STDs send, places reserved, good idea of food, flowers, invitations.  Also, I am constantly researching for ideas and for music.  But nothing to really "set in stone" right now.  Am I missing anything??

                  I've added our new brides to the list and will post again soon. 

                   

                  Does anyone else work with Carolina?  I have a hard time getting anywhere with her.  I've asked a few questions and I feel as though I don't really understand her responses.  I still haven't started my spreadsheet, even though I've mentioned it a few times.  I'm gonna be highly upset if my locations end up unavailable!!  They shouldn't since we are getting married on a Monday, but you never know.  So, I'd love to get it in writing.  Guess I'll have to be a little more pushy.  :o)

                   

                  For the girls having a welcome party, are you doing this as a cocktail type reception, or are you using the included Spoons dinner? 


                  I also have Carolina but my local wedding coordinator is communicating with her on my behalf.   My coordinator has not even recieved a reply on my requests and it has been a week and a half already.  A little disappointing as my request was regarding confirming locations. 

                   

                  We were thinking about having a farewell cocktail party on the last night followed by the group dinner at Spoons (which accomodates a max of only 40 as I'm told).  It appears that group seating options are 6 or 6:30 pm (way too early for a combo cocktail/dinner evening for us).  Has anyone else asked about the group dinner and found different time options - we were hoping for 8pm.

                   

                  If the group dinner has to be that early - then we are probably going to have a welcome coctail on day 2 and book the spoon dinner at 6:30 as a farewell dinner - this combo is actually looking more appealing to me as I think about it - spreads a little here and there and lets people get back to their rooms to pack or stay out later to enjoy the night.
