        Hi, I have finally been assigned a wedding coordinator here name is Cristina. I sent her a 6 page word document of all the question and pictures I have been gathering over the last 6 months two weeks ago and so far only had one question answered. I am going with the free package which includes a bouquet. I emailed her asking if I could have a colourful bouquet, dont mind what flowers just tropical and bright. However she told me I ony have two options avaliable and they are both white. Lovely dont get me wrong but I had my heart set on a tropical bouquet. Plus the prices of bridesmaids and buttonholes is so expensive. I worked out that to have the bouquet I dont like, 2 bridesmaids and 6 buttonholes with two corsages it would be £395. almost all the wedding party are coming home the day after the wedding and it feels like such a waste. In the end I went with real touch flowers by bloominggorgeous.net. the lady was so helpful and customised what I wanted even thou I had left it late to order. the total price for everything with a bouquet i love comes to £205 including p+p. Plus I get to keep them!!! We gets loads of baggage allowance with Virgin (2 x 23kg suitcase per person) so transporting them wont be a problem. I am a little disapointed in Moon Palace. I would of though tropical flowers would be avaliale in the tropics!!??

          WHEN you get there... not before!! Tell them that you want your free bouquet to be colorful and put onto the table... I did and they even split it into two and it made it look like I had bought flowers for my table. They will bend over backwards to get you what you want.

            Mrs. Moulton,

            I actually asked Lily if we could arrange for the free bouquet to be split like you did....and she said "no problem"! So thank you for the fabulous idea...I totally thought I was giving that bouquet up since I am bringing my own. :)

              I am hoping they will split my free bouquet and make two centre pieces for the chapel that can then be transfered to the restaurant for the evening reception. I have heard they are very helpful and a few of my friends advised to wait until I got there to organise the flowers but they are important to me and I didnt want to be stuck out there with only minimal options and paying through the nose for a few stems that are going in the bin the next day. I am so excited its only 10 weeks!! Waiting to hear from the dress shop as my dress is due in any day. I'm glad it all worked out for you futureMs moulton i have been following your posts on the stress you had with lack of communication etc. Its good to hear and makes it a little easier as i havent had much info or communication from my co-ordinator.

                  If anyone needs points, let me know. I just donated half of the points I had and I have another 10K left. Just remember to pass it on when it is your turn! I remember I really needed points desperately when I was starting and couldn't get them fast enough!

                  Good luck to all of you. Enjoy every minute of it because it all goes by so fast. I can't believe it has been 1 1/2 years for me!

                      Hello All: I had started to work with my wedding coordinator on flowers but the flowers she was sending me were not what I was looking for. I would suggest providing an idea of flowers that you are looking for through pictures as an example, so they can match up with what you want. After much decision I decided to go through PSAV for most of my flower arrangements (except the alter). I am so happy I did, because Lilly has been AWESOME. When I send an email, I get a response usually within the same day. Also, they have a lot of examples of flowers that they have done...and she keeps a running list of the flowers that I have chosen. I even think that some of her flowers are actually cheaper.
                      Bride and Groom + 62 Booked = PARTAAAY!
