    This really sucks. I am so freaking tired of not being able to do this or having to buy something for a high price. Oh well I guess it made my life easier. I guess we will just not be throwing anything.
    Instead of flowers my flower girls will be dropping sea shells (soft ones, no jagged edges). If you go to save-on-crafts.com they have some freeze dried petals on there, but I am not sure how long it would take to get them.

    Someone else mentioned costco..... that is a good idea. We did that for my sisters wedding here. You can get like 2 dozen roses for $15 and you just cut off the petals, it is very easy. For her wedding we only needed about 6 roses for the girls. You can get a good amount of petals from 2 dozen roses!

      I LOVE LOVE LOVE THAT SONG... "I got my toes in the water, ass in the sand, not a worry in the world, a cold beer in my hand, life is good today". And think that is PERFECT... that is something we would love to use somewhere to, as that is our personalities as well!

          Me and FI will be 30 by the wedding and most of our group is the same age or a bit younger. I'm sure we'll be hearing complaints!!

            I can't believe that the wedding is exactly in one month from today. We are super excited yet it's so stressful at the same time right now.

            As far as the rose petals go..I wanted to write and say that Ana does not allow rose petals to be thrown on the beach. But, she does allow it if you are getting married at the gazebo.

            So I went to Michael's and bought a few boxes of the silk rose petals and will have Ana scatter them on the aisle before the ceremony starts.
            Interesting! I do have a flower girl.......so she won't be able to throw rose petals? It seems weird that Ana wouldn't allow real petals but she will allow silk petals? Is that what you are saying?

              Ok, so whats the final say with the roses? None at all on the beach, even if you purchase them from Ana? I'm confussed on this issue...

                I contacted dreams and got terrible rates. The guy actually told me I'd get better rates through an agent, with all the same extras. The TA's can get the same rates as places like expedia. I'd definitely go with a TA.

                  I have called the resort and asked for the wedding coordinator several times, and most of the time have been able to speak with Ana or Yazmin. I too had problems nailing down a date and time, so I felt that was worth the phone call!

                  Another bride told me that you could mix menu options, for those doing the love or ultimate package.

                  I'd love to know the petal question, too. Thanks to all of you brides answering questions and all of you sharing sites. I think I now have an addiction to this thread! I was out of touch or a few days and began having withdrawal symptoms...
