          I want to stay as local and sort of connected to the atmosphere as I could, so I went tropical:

            So I am just wondering how many brides just waited until you got to the resort and saw what flowers they had to offer? I asked my DWC what they do for bouquet and she said anything I want. I am wondering if i should take them pics of what I want or just go open-minded.

              Oooo...well, I'm not a gambler, and I'm picky, so I've been googling images of bridal bouquets for the last 8 months!  I hope to narrow it down to 3 or 4 "inspiration" photos for the WC to hand over to the florist.  It's just that things can get lost in translation...and what I would describe in words may not necessarily be what pops into the head of the florist.

                I totally agree! I have been looking for a while now, but have not found what I'm looking for. I'm never too good at describing what I want either. Then if i don't like something I get frustrated and just say i like it anyway. I'm just wondering how to incorporate their tropic flair. How can I know what flowers they will have local? Since you have been looking for so long : )   Do you have any pics that are limited to three colors at the most that have flowers draping down over the hands?

                 

                For AHR I am also looking for some great inspirational pics that are Roses with babys breath with a fun twist. I know I want to go along those lines...Just not quite sure how to spice it up. I did get three jeweled starfish that I plan on putting in both bouquets.

                  Well, the first thing I did was to figure out which flowers I loved and which flowers to put on my "please do not use" list.  I know I want a round, hand tied, multi-pink bouquet of assorted flowers.  I googled every possible way you could describe what I have in my head...by colour, flower type, etc...clicked on "images" and scrolled...and scrolled...and scrolled...for what must be a combined total of 12 days (it seems!)...and I'm close, but I wish I had ONE perfect inspiration photo to hand over.  Maybe it's better though to hand over 3 or 4 and say, "this is kinda what I'm looking for...I would be happy with something along this line, so go to it!".  I plan to send my top picks to the WP about 6 weeks ahead of time...whether or not they get shared with the florist is another thing I guess.  But I thought if the florist saw the inspiration pics ahead of time, they could place their flower order appropriately.

                    hmm... I think brides should check out which flowers are in season and which are out first with their florist (unless they picked all season flowers like roses), you don't wanna fall in love with one type of flower and learn that they are out of season.  Go local also help...as some imported flowers may not last that long under intense heat/humidity...local flowers usually last longer.

                      Agreed...but I won't have any direct contact with the florist (I don't even know who does the flowers at this resort)...the flowers are included in the package we're purchasing and the WP just takes the order and places it.  I've been told to select from the "menu" that they've provided, or send/bring my photos.  That's why I'm taking the approach, "this is what I like/this is what I don't like...here are some photos/I'd be happy with anything along this line".
