Flower Questions Need your help!

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 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.

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

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.
