    I am looking into what flowers to purchase (purchase silk before hand, or real once I'm at the resort) I was hoping brides could post some pictures of the arrangements they went with and if they went with real or silk. What were the neg/pos of what you decided?!
    I'm just nervous about leaving my flower purchase till I get there, and then regret it?! LOL
    And for those brides that did purchase silk... how did you get them there without damage and did they take up a lot of space?

    Thank you so much

      Looking forward to reading the pros and cons on this topic! I almost sure that I will purchase my flowers there for the main reason that we are flying with Skyservice and luggage weight is limited.

        I say purchase silks/natural touch...I just got back from ROR (it was so FAB!)and received the free bouquet (which was used as my toss) but I say hands down the natural touch flowers are great. They look real and you can keep them.

          We upgraded our free bouquet and also bought corsages for the ladies and button holes for the men. My bouquet and the other flower arrangements lasted about a week in our room. The button holes didn't last longer than 1 day.

          They matched the flowers and colours for the bouquet with the ones that go on the gazebo. They also matched flowers on the cake too.

            This is what I plan to do as well. I am going to take the free flowers for myself and FI, I decided the MOH and bridesmaid would carry parasols and the BM and groomsman, I plan on using a real starfish for their boutineer.

                You can also search under the flower thread that is under the main forum. There is TONS of info and pics on flowers, both real and fake. I plan to use real touch just so I know I am getting exactly what I want. I have seen some really pretty real pics in photos, but I have also read some reviews where brides didn't get exactly what they asked for from the florist. They deliver right before ceremony time, so there is no time for changes.

                  That is a very unique idea!!! Love it! I am still unsure who is all coming from my wedding party yet

                    I purchased silk flowers at Michaels. I then took them to a flower shop and they arranged them for me and wrapped them. I had the bridesmaids flowers wrapped with the part of their dress what cut off for hemming. I had people coming up to me at the resort wondering if they were real and where I got them.

                      Those flowers from Micheal's look great. I'm leaving on Saturday and still debating doing this or not. Great idea to bring them to a florist to arrange them. That was the part I was worried about. I just wish there was a Micheal's close to me.
