      I love afloral.com and they have a lot of orchids! I bought plum and white orchids from them and was very happy with them. I just got through chatting with a rep from them online. I was concerned about the material of the flower that I want to use for the centerpieces. She said latex, plastic, rubber, and real-touch flowers will all work fine, but the ones I like are a deep color and they are silk so the color might bleed. She said you can simply buy a sealant at your local craft store and seal the flowers before submerging them and they should be fine. Hope this helps!

       

      here is a link to the pink orchids through afloral

      happy planning!

              I'm thinking of doing something like this as well... I hoping that my Wedding Planner has and won't charge me an arm and a leg, I really don't want to lug vases with me on top of everything else.

              If I had to bet I'd say your resort will way over charge you. Look into if there is a local store or market where you are going. We are getting our vases at the wal Mart near the resort.

                Yeah thats what I think I'm going to do. I don't remember seeing anything last time I was there but then again I never thought to look. Thanks for the idea.
