Fake Flowers?

Recommended Posts

So I haven't started researching flowers whatsoever, but I notice that a lot of people have DIY flowers or order them from various websites, etc. I didn't realize that some flowers may not be fresh so I was just wondering what the reason/benefits are of doing this. I realize that you get to keep it and it won't wilt in the heat but anything else?

 

Thanks :)

My decision to do real touch flowers wasn't really based on the flowers being fresh, but on the prices of the bouquets/floral packages at my resort. I found them to be quite pricey for what I really wanted. The cost of real flowers for 1 day, didn't equal the package that I was able to get for my real touch flowers & thats what sealed the deal for me. Plus the fact that I was able to bring them home & have them forever was another big advantage.

I chose Real Touch Bouquets and Bouts from Plumerias Wedding Boutique because I wanted the colours to be just right and I also like the idea that the girls will be able to keep them after the wedding. I'm also incorperating the bouquets into our centrepieces so it's actually saving me a little money! I guess the one thing with real flowers is depending on the season and where you're wedding is they might not be the right colours or very costly. For 5 bridesmaids bouquets, mine, 9 bouts, and three wrist corsages we're spending around $500! It's a personal choice but there are some beautiful options for real touch out there! HAPPY PLANNING!

Now that I read this I am also starting to think about Real Touch Bouquets.. etc But I would break the heart of my future father-in-law . He is so much into real flowers .. blush2.gif oh god i hope the flowers wont be too expensive in mexico where we are getting married but its good to know that you were so happy with your choices , I will consider it too. Thanks for sharing your valuable experiences. I guess he kind of likes the look and smell of real flowers if they are really pretty ones and the wedding day it is such a special day

I put them in a separate carry on bag & took that on the plane with me. The bag was pretty deep & wide but still the regulation carry on size. They were already wrapped up in a lot of tissue paper so that helped keep them from getting too smashed.

I found the prices at the resort to be very expensive for one and second reason I made my won flowers was I just wanted that detail taken care of and no suprizes on my wedding day

    • 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
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
