    I didn't want to pay the $300+ for real flowers that the resort was going to charge us so I started looking into "real touch" flower options. I came across a seller on etsy that had some beautiful bouquets for sale. I contacted her and we worked out a deal. I'm insanely please that I could get what I wanted within a reasonable price range. I paid $125 in total (plus $7 shipping). I recieved:
    - 3 bridesmaid bouquets
    - 4 bouts
    - 3 pin-on corsages

    Her shop website is: Click the image to open in full size.

        Hi they are very pretty are they pulmaria?I have seen these flowers when we were looking at weddings in Hawaii.Can i make a suggestion without being rude, could you tie some ribbon around the stems with pearl pins.I think that it would make them really expensive looking. x

            Yes, they are plumeria (hilariously they are foam). There's already organza ribbon tied around the stems - its just a sage green so it sorta blends in too much. Not sure yet if i'll leave it or change it. I usually prefer satin to organza anyway (or some other solid ribbon).

              Very reasonable! I've been trying to find something similarly priced plumerias, but have had no luck at all . Most bouquet makers that I've found say that the plumerias are more expensive than any of the other real touch flowers for some reason! So you must be using what the resort provides for you then?

                That's correct. I just can't justify spending tons and tons of money on flowers. My fiance said he didn't like fake flowers because they didn't look real. So we compromised (he was more than willing after I told him how much all the things we HAD to buy were going to cost). My bouquet and his bout are free. I'm going to see if I can at least request that they be "pink" to sorta match. But I don't mind being a little different - we're the bride and groom so its ok.
