Just Ordered My Real Touch Flowers!!

Recommended Posts

Hi all Brides to be!! I always need to start off by saying how much I appreciate everybody supporting this website , its given me soo many inspirations that I will start to post photos of soon, such as my invites.

 

I have been going back and forth about real or not real flowersblush2.gif but after alot of soul searching I decided that the real touch made more sense and here is why....

 

I am getting married in The Riviera Maya and orchids are flown in from Costa Rica per my WC and are 18 DOLLARS FOR ONEEEEEE HEAD of the big cymbid. I really wanted all my bridesmaids to have green w/ accents of magenta since there dress in magenta. Holy cow you know how expensive that would be for 6 BM, eeeeeee!! SO plan B would have been to go with a different flower but I can't get it out of my heart soooo 1st reason for me to think about real touch.

 

The next day most of my guests including bridesmaids since the wedding is on a Saturday are leaving and when I was just recently in a wedding I kept my BM bouquet till it got moldy hahaha because it was sooo pretty and such a waste to have these girls only enjoy if for one night. SOoo instead they can keep them as a keepsake and take them back on the plane with them which you can't do with real flowers. I asked one of my BMS what she thought because hey maybe she always invisioned fresh flowers for her bouquet but she was super excited about the idea of keeping hers!! 2nd reason to think about real touch.

 

My bouquet: The same wedding I was in she had to leave on her honeymoon the next day and wow I couldn't imagine only being with my bouquet for one night, the whole time while she was gone I was wondering who she gave it to! It was big and amazzzzzing!! I thought I don't want mine to ever die if it looked that beautiful and ummmmmm pricey!! I was super super nervous too about how my bouquet vision would translate from my WC to the florists and again would have to sacrafice alot of money for those damn orchids I have to have :) Our save the dates and website has the orchid theme I ve wanted to keep up with. 3rd reason!!

 

TTDress Session!!

 

I get to use my bouquet again and go in the water with it!! Love itt!!! 4th Reason!

 

I will keep it forever and ever and ever!!! 5th Reason

 

And final the cost duh :) But that was never really the #1 reason for going real touch, as a bride we manage to make what we want happen!!! It was the icing on the cake!

 

And now for who I am working with and would highly recommend or consider!!

 

 

Orchid bouquets

 

Berry and Wine toned flowers

 

I love the orchid of paradise one but we are doing magenta roses and orchids with green orchids and touches of white ones. Soo dreamy! I am doing a 12inch with silver wrap so I can glue my own purple swaraskies (sp)

 

 

The BMS are getting all green orchids with touches of magenta roses and orchids. Opposite of mine :) 8 inch bouquet

 

We are also doing 5 GMens in Green Cybs and a 1 purple/pink one for the Groom that she said will match my bouquet.

 

Also getting 10 mixed green and purple cybid. real touch for the cake

 

and one mini bouquet of mine for the bridal toss :)

 

Grand total..................$560 for all of it!! $35 for shipping. Mailing her a 300$ deposit to get it going tomo. I think this is an awesome deal and I am sooo excited the only thing we need to worry about in MX is our decoration flowers which will be real of course.

 

She will be sending me pics of the flowers then pics of the finished products and I can tweak anything then I don't like. She was soo nice to talk to and I feel so good using her! I told her I would give her a shout out here! Let her know I sent you :)

 

I really looked thru alot of postings on here and the web. Debated back and forth alot! When I asked my WC about MarieSam's bouquet (BDWF member) she said they weren't real and I was like oooookay I need to reconsider this real touch thing!! If you are considering real touch forget about for one second the only sucky part is that YOU will know they are not real but think of all the other positives and take a chance! The worst thing that happens you don't like it and you get real ones. Or you have a visual tester for the real thing for your florists and you can keep the copy version. Hey I think that is worth 100 bucks :)

 

Good luck and I ll keep you posted with any pics I get!!!

I'm totally doing Real Touch Flowers, and I am glad you saw the same benefits we did to using these very beautiful subsititions for the real thing! I can almost assure you, unless someone touches your bouquet, they most likely won't be able to tell the difference! wink.gif

I have three more reasons to get the real touch flowers:

 

You know what you're going to get, you are going to get the colour palette you want

and they are easy to travel with/no wilting.

 

Good debate with yourself Blielena!!
