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.

@@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?

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

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.

    • I hope you have chosen choosen 3d dress too, it looks the best. When my friend was having a Bachelorette Party and we had to find nice looks for the night, it was like a nightmare. Because 4 girls like 4 different styles and it was hard to find the best one. There are a lot of great articles on this topic you can find on the web https://storyofthebride.com/2020/bachelorette-party-looks-that-will-define-the-night/ . But still we had decided on our brain storm that black and white outfits would have the best looking. It was the only one look that everyone shared. So we had not too many options.
    • Well this a kind of situation mostly, It will be awkward situation for your parents, They are mature enough and parent don't want to spoil the marriage of their children. Don't worry everything gonna be fine. just have good bottle of wine for them🍷
    • Vaughan is a city in Ontario, Canada, where my sister got married last February, before the pandemic. This wasn’t a pre-planned wedding. Since her husband hails from there, Vaughan was chosen as the destination for their wedding. It was a great decision they had made because that helped us create memories that I will cherish forever in my life. The attitude and the approach of the locals are so warm that I felt like I was in my hometown. An outdoor event venue was chosen because the climate was exceptional, decorated with lights and flowers. We couldn’t stop ourselves from clicking photographs, and everything was arranged perfectly, making the event all hassle-free. The reception ceremony was neatly done with mouthwatering food preparations. It was fun to have a wedding there and it was an event well organized. If any of you are looking for a destination wedding in Canada, Vaughan is a prudent choice. I have heard Montreal is nice but this was a great experience. Now it’s not the right time folks. Stay safe at your places. Let this pass and then we shall think about such events.
