Flower Questions Need your help!

Recommended Posts

Okay I am losing track of time and only have 5 months till the big day and I haven't thought about flowers yet. I have some included in my package but I think I would to do artificial, maybe?

 

Questions...

 

1. For those of you who got your flowers through your resort, did you bring pictures for inspiration? Were you happy with what you got?

 

2. For those of you who brought down artificial flowers, where did you get them? Anywhere in the Midwest?

 

3. Hair flowers, any retail stores sell the real touch? Are they easy to make? If so does anyone have instructions? If not, where are good places to buy them?

 

Last one, I think

 

I am think of doing my bouquet, and bouquets for my 3 bridesmaids but not doing flowers for the groomsmen.

 

Did anyone else not do flowers for the groomsmen, if so was that okay?

 

Thanks so much!!

I was also thinking of no flowers for the Groom and GM. My FI is half hawaiin so we were thinking of doing lea's on the men.

 

***He thinks it is strange to have lea's in mexico, I think it is perfectly fine. It is his heritage after all!!

We did not do flowers for the men at all.

 

I had the natural touch flowers which I ordered through [a company]- but I don't think they would be able to fit you in b/c they take orders about a year out now it seems. However, there are numerous other online companies that you can order the natural touch flowers from - or check out stores like Hobby Lobby, Michaels, etc to see if they have flowers you like.

 

We transported our flowers in s separate suitcase that we checked and had no problems.

I made my own flowers before I went too! Just went to Hobby Lobby and purchased them 50% off and got some ribbon and green tape and they turned out awesome! I am really not too crafty but I didn't want to spend tons of money on flowers either. It actually wasn't too difficult either. I made my bridesmaid bouquets and DH's boutennierre. We didn't do flowers for the GM's though and it worked out great! Here is a pic:

Betsy - your flowers look great in the picture! Are they really artificial?

 

How did you guys transport your artificial flowers down to Mex without them getting all squashed?

Here are more of Betsy's, I think they are just silk flowers.

Most of the girls transporting there flowers, including us, put them in hard sided luggage so they don't get squished.

 

I don't know what your budget is, or if you have the time to make them yourselves. We have plenty of time so I was going to make ours thinking it would be cheaper, but it ended up being about the same price of ordering artificial, so I decided to save the time and pay to have them done w/ really nice real touch flowers. I'm ordering mine from Shavon fresh real natural touch artificial silk wedding bouquet flowers She has great prices! I'm ordering my bouquet, 4 BM, pomander for FG, 9 bouts (1 special for FI), 2 corsages, cake flowers, 7 centerpieces w/ glass vases. We're spending $698 which includes the shipping. So, if you were to have my flowers (for example) shavon would charge around $200.

 

Are you going to have a bout for your groom? I think GM's w/out would be ok, but the groom needs a little something special.

 

Some local flower shops do artificial, we have a few in our town, but they have been more expensive than ordering from AA, Sharon, Shavon, and so many others on the forum.

 

I know michaels carries some real touch, but a limited number of flowers. You can always check etsy.com there are lots of hair flowers on there, and alot of the designers will do a custom one for you.

I just used what the resort offered (pink roses) for my bouquet. I think they provided a bout for my husband as well, but I honestly can't even remember! I didn't do flowers for the groomsmen or bridesmaids, but the bm's carried parasols.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
