I definitely saved money. (Plus, I cancelled the bouquet that came with my package and the resort took some money off my rental of the sound equipment for the reception, which was great.) We had enough flowers for 8 BM bouquets, tons of FG petals, my bouquet, and the reception...and still had lots leftover.
I worked with Ana Rivas (firstname.lastname@example.org). She was very responsive and worked hard to get what I wanted. Since I spent over $200, it was delivered to the resort for free.
Word of warning: Flower quality wasn't the best (we just got roses, and some were blown way open, some were rotten, etc). We had more than enough flowers, though, so it wasn't the end of the world. Knowing what I know now, I would still go the route of getting flowers on my own. It did take a fair amount of time to make them but my mom was excited to do it.
