    Yeppers!!! I brought mine from home - I had one suitcase dedicated to the transportation of all my flowers.

    They were made by Bridal Blooms by Laura - she is out of Oakville. The entire transaction was done through email and telephone. She was FANTASTIC!

      *sigh* I may just have to go the fake route, none of the Melia Bouquets are that intriguing to me. Where are the colours!? I guess this is the biggest difference between Mexico and Cuba. Damn it.

      Thanks for the link Amy, I'm totally going to check out my options. :)

        Ash,

        I feel like you may have a better selection in the summer, the thing is that in JANUARY (when I got married) it is their winter there too, so most plants are dormant -- thus i went the fake route.

        Your WC at the Melia should be better able to give you an idea!

        Good Luck!

          Thanks Amy! I hope you're right, I'll try and get in touch with her and see what she says.

          Virg: What are you doing for flowers that week?

            I brought my own flowers to Cuba as well. We all just brought them in our carryon and they travelled well. These flowers were ordered from Angels Accents and I absolutely loved them.

            They might give you some ideas or are also for sale if you're interested.

              Does anyone know what kind of flowers the Blau Varadero has to offer? I am now worried too that in March I won't have a great selection.

                I'm planning to get a real touch bouquet made, I'm a little torn, I wanted real flowers but I am picky about my colors/types of flowers I want. Ashley - If you are easy going about your flowers I'm sure you could get something pretty, most brides from MLD I have seen have pink/white (or all white) star gazer lilies and calla lilies, I know they have other flowers around though as I have seen them in arrangements - like ginger/birds of paradise/roses etc...so I guess it depends how anal you are, I don't think there is anything else near the resort in terms of florists, it is in the middle of nowhere apparently. Good luck deciding! Let us know what you decide :)

                  What is a real touch bouquet?

                    Jackobelle, Real Touch refers to a high quality faux flower that is often used for Bouts and Bouquets-- they are popular for destination wedding because they take the guess-work out of planning from afar, and they are also great for people with allergies.

                    There isn't one specific company that created "real touch" flowers, but here is a link to some great photos that give you an idea.

                    They look gorgeous. But sjmacphe is right, I'm pretty laid back and will likely just choose something down there. I will definitely keep all you MLD Brides in the loop. :)

                      Thanks for the info & link! I am sure I will find something at the resort I like for a bouquet, I am only a little worried that it will not be 'flower season' but I am sure it will be fine, I love almost all types of flowers. The other plus to 'real touch' flowers would be you would also have them for the TTD if you are doing one.
