Flower help!!

Recommended Posts

I'm so frustrated with the trying to decide on flowers for the wedding. I love two different bouquet options, I sent them both to the florist the told me both will cost about $275-300 and the bridesmaids will be $90 each. This is probably stupid, but I'm really struggling with spending almost $500.00 on flowers! I probably won't even be able to bring them home, so that makes it even harder for me to want to purchase them.

 

I've looked on some of the websites for the real touch flowers, most of them have been in bright/dark pinks. I'm looking for a pale pink. Another thing I've noticed is with the pink calla lillies that I've seen that are the real touch flowers, the center stem is pink and on the real ones it's a yellow color.

 

These are the two bouquets that I love, I'm open to suggestions if y'all have some...I'd love to hear your opinions on this!

 

I'd prefer a little lighter pink, than the top picture}

I have emailed three different places for quotes about the real touch flowers, but haven't heard back from any of them as of yet. I'd really planned on doing real flowers, I guess I just didn't realize how expensive they would be!! I really fell behind on making a decision for the flowers. :

I really like both of those a lot! ... but if you're wanting something lighter maybe you could have some more white flowers added in to offset the bright pink so much? or I know some florists websites I've looked at offer dyeable flowers so maybe you could look into that so they could just dye your flowers the right color?

I think that if you are having trouble deciding because of the money that is spent, but you had your heart set on real flowers, what you could maybe do is, get yourself the bouqet that you desire(Think about in the future saying, I wish I would have) and possibly getting your bridesmaids the real touch? They may not be exactly the same as your bouqet, but eye focus will be on you, not your bridesmaids...... Just a thought.

I love both of those bouquets. I'm sure someone with real touch flowers should have a lighter pink for you - hopefully they reply with some good news. Also look around more for real touch flowers that maybe you can put together yourself and mix a couple of different shades of light pink to help it off-set a little. I also agree with LeeshaS, maybe you could get the bouquet of real flowers for yourself and then use the real touch for everything else.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
