hi friends! Looking for a bit of advice on flowers! I'm wondering what others have done or are planning to do... We need 1 bridal bouquet, 1 MOH bouquet, 2 boutonnieres, and 2 corsages for our moms... so not a lot of flowers, but enough that it is causing some stress. (flowers & centerpieces are my two *road blocks* right now...)

 

Lomas' floral pricing is high and nothing on the site really 'wows' me. Well, there are a few, but they are, of course, the $350 bouquets. I just can't justify that cost, especially since I can bring the flowers home. http://www.weddingsbylomastravel.com/planning/bouquets.html

  • If you ordered from Lomas - was the quality worth the cost? did anyone have a bouquet custom made vs. ordering one of the standard options on the site? 
  • For those who did fake flowers - where'd you find the stems? how'd you pack them to ensure they didn't ruined during travel? 

Thank you!!!

Hi, Lomas Flowers are beautiful I saw them in person but I also found them outrageously over priced. I used and outside vendor for my flowers. Maya Floral and I didn’t regret it. They had wonderful reviews and were easy to work with and way cheaper than Lomas.

Yes I did pay the vendor fee because I wanted what I wanted. I also paid it for my photographer as well. I didn’t mind to pay both to get what I wanted

@@Sweetness14 - awesome! did you have to pay the outrageous $800 outside vendor fee? Can you share some photos of your flowers?

 

Also - who was your WC?

 

thanks for sharing!

Here are a few pics. The flowers when they were delivered were not fully opened up but opened up all the way by the time the ceremony started. post-287907-150842659609_thumb.jpgpost-287907-150842660595_thumb.jpgpost-287907-150842666142_thumb.jpgpost-287907-150842667323_thumb.jpg

any other April or May 2018 Azul brides out there? We're quickly approaching the "100 days to go" mark and suddenly starting to feel a little overwhelmed with the planning we have left to do, but it's mostly the little things, of course!

 

Does anyone know the timeframe when Karisma transfer the wedding from the Miami WC to the wedding team at Azul? We're still communicating with Javier, and he's been pretty good these past 12+ months... just wondering when they transfer.

 

Things left to do... that I can think of right off the top of my head:

  • wedding band for FH
  • list of songs for the DJ and the ceremony
  • witness passports and legal documents 
  • final payment on the hotel 
  • dress alterations (scheduled)
  • find bridal accessories
  • find shirts for FH and BM
  • finalize gift bags for guests - WIP
  • communicate week of / day of timeline to guests
  • organize all my communications with Javier so I can easily reference
  • book flights for my mom and FMIL (they don't fly and are panicking about flying out of the country)
  • probably a dozen other things I'm forgetting!

 

anyone else feel like sh*t is getting real?

. Wow I’m surprised that you haven’t been in contact with your wedding coordinator at the resort as of yet. You may want to ask about that. For my wedding last year, I was in contact with my coordinator a year and a half before.

Fear not, I believe Javier is your on site coordinator!

 

Javier was the coordinator for our wedding last year. I worked with him for about a year prior to the big day and I had the opportunity to meet him when we arrived at the resort.

 

I think there was a shift about 2 years ago that moved planning away from Miami and into the hands of each resort instead.

 

With that said, there is an on site team that handles the actual set up so you will be handed over to them once you arrive.

    • So long story short I want to have my wedding in Jamaica in December. However, it's booked up. So next option is Cancun. I am going to be doing a Tamil Sri Lankan South Asian wedding. I want a 5 star hotel.  I was set on Royalton as that is where I always go and love it. However, it seems really pricy for the wedding. I am looking to have 30-40 people.  I want to spend the least amount of money ... Doesn't everyone!  I want to know what 5 star chain or resort provides the best deals for weddings? I would love to know about Moon Palace( I can't get a hold of anyone!)  If there are any other ones please let me know!  
    • I want to testify to the glory of Lord Masuka, the spell caster that helped me restored my marriage. It all started when my husband came back home acting weird for no reason, I tried to find out what was going on but he refused talking to me for days, he woke up one morning and say to me that he needs a break and he left without any clue where he's going, I was so shocked and devastated because I have done nothing wrong to him other than being a supporting wife, I cried all day, one fateful evening I saw series of comments on how Lord Masuka had restored collapsed marriages, so I decided to give him a try. He assured me that all hope are not lost yet, I followed the instructions he gave me and to my greatest surprise my husband who had left me for  months without a call came to my work place and begged for forgiveness, now we are happy family because of Lord Masuka. To as many of you having issues in your relationship, marriages Lord Masuka is the answer to your problem, contact him today via email lordmasukaspelltemple@hotmail.com or WhatsApp him +1(234)-307-0752.

    • You are definitely not alone in this I am sure!  As much as you want all of your friends and family there, DWs can be tough for a lot of people to make.  Some for financial reasons and others because they have a weird chip on their shoulder about you having one.  It sucks initially but you aren't getting married for them!  And for all of the people who make it, you will create an even stronger bond.  I hope it gets better and please keep us posted!
