    Hey Blushing Bride, if Ana has not sent you any bouquet options, ask her to send you the pictures of the bouquets in an email. Keep in mind its very flexible. You can get any flowers you want depending on availability in DR. And you ask for the bouquet according to your taste; larger or smaller, more greenery, less greenery, etc. Also, some flowers do cost extra. And the bridesmaids flowers are not included unless they wear corsages which is not the way we do it as far as I know. As for the colors, you pick your colors or ask her opinion. She is good with style!! LOL, she does weddings everyday, she knows best!! Hope I was able to help!! I just picked my flowers after months of debate so I'm very familiar with this topic!!

      Thanks Dolcenotte!! I will email her. I'm wondering if the bouquet selection is done as your wedding date approaches; I'm still a year away.

        Hi Amberdgraham!!

        I guess I will see you at Excellence!! We are getting married on July 5th. I have also had a hard time getting in contact with Lisbeth. I've emailed her 3 times in the last week, with no response. What is Ana's email address? I'd like to email her and make sure everything is "a go."

        We were going to do a legal ceremony, but decided to get legally married in the states before we leave....less hassle and less money.

        Thanks for all of the info. and thanks for starting this thread!!

          We we definitely see you then, we'll be at the resort from June 28th-July 6th. I know another bride on the site, Nadia and Julian are getting married there on the 3rd as well, but I haven't connected with her in a while.

          How many people are you having? I'm taking 4 centerpieces for the tables down with me, and would be happy to loan them if you don't have plans for that already. I can send pictures if you're interested.

            Amber,

            Michael and I are having a small wedding there....just he and I and a few friends. We will be getting legally married in the US before we leave. We were going to get legally married there, but after sifting through all the paper work and fees, we decided to forgoe the hassle and get hitched here, first.

            I'd love to see pics of your centerpieces. I doubt we will need them, since we are going to be a small group. Thanks so much for offering...that was really sweet of you. Don't forget, I still want to see the pics.

            Also, are you guys doing any of the excursions outside of the resort. I think we are going to go ziplining one day and on a safari one day. I've heard from a friend (she goes every year) that you must do the one day safari. I think it is through Bravorunners.

            Thanks for all of your help!!

            Scarlett

              Scarlett,

              PM me your email addy and I'll send the picture. We're staying through the 8th, so you'd be welcome to use if you want. We only have 18 people coming, so I'm only bringing 4 centerpieces, but I'm happy to share.

              I'm definitely planning on the catamaran trip out to Sanoa Island, and have thought about taking my girlfriends to the ziplining thing, but I'm not sure how far away it is. Is there a company in particular that you were looking at?

                Would you mind emailing me your pictures. I'm not very creative and need LOTS of help with my wedding.

                  Hey Lori,

                  I've gotten a lot of requests, so I think I may try to upload on here, if I can't figure it out I'll email you.

                  There's also a GREAT thread on the forum if you do a search for "centerpiece." All sorts of brides have posted their ideas, everything from flower arrangements to candles etc.

                  Also, from what I can see, the Excellence does a great job of doing decorating. If you feel you're not creative and don't want to worry about it, you can leave the decorating in their very capable hands, and rely on the backdrop of the Caribbean Sea to set a wonderful and beautiful scene for your wedding.

                      Gracie,

                      Do you know how much it is to have a legal ceremony in DR? I'm also thinking of getting married in the states before we go.

                      Thanks,
                      Alicia
