i am not a 'huge' fan of real touch flowers, so i am thinking of a local vendor and sending someone to pick them up. anyone know of a florist NEAR the MP? x
I am in the same boat. I really don't want to have to pack the real touch flowers plus with the amount that is spent on them, it is almost close to what MP charges. I am considering a cancun florist as well but I don't think it will end up working out. But MP prices on flowers are crazy expensive. What I will spend on bridesmaid bouquets alone would cover an entire wedding here in the states.

yeah exactly my thoughts. i've emailed a florist and i'll wait to see what they say. I have a couple of guests staying at other hotels so i will see if they can deliver to them instead and they can bring them with them. i don't need much, but it MUST be cheaper. MP quoted me $30 per buttonhole!! that is ridiculous! i'd rather go and pick my own that morning and pin them on!

I emailed Marvin from Maya Diseno Floral (marvin@mayadisenofloral.com.mx) and he's been GREAT! he said we won't have problems with delivery (I'm only ordering four button holes and two corsages) as they will say that it was a gift paid for from someone in England and he's delivering them. They can't stop that apparently! so happy! and it's saving me more than 70%!!!

It cracks me up that he already knows how to work around their policies. I am going to check with him too. Thanks for the info!

I'm definitely doing Real Touch. The florist that I'm using actually packs the flowers for shipping and send pics of how they packed it, so you can re-pack them once you inspect your shipment. The MP flower prices are ridiculous!

 

BTW: I'm planning to "recycle" my BM bouquets into reception decor by placing them in vases on tables. I'm planning to get my money's worth!

Awesome! Thanks for the info! I'm getting married at Moon Palace and will definitely be contacting him too! :)

Hi all,

 

For any of you that are using real touch flowers, do they look and feel pretty real?  I have found a couple websites that sell beautiful real touch bouquets, but I have never seen these before in person, so I'm not sure what to expect. 

 

Thanks!

HI Woodsy, I was wondering how this worked out for you... any problems when they delivered the flowers? I'm getting married @ Beach Palace which is in the hotel zone, so hopefully Maya Diseno delivers there as well... just need a different bouquet or something! Also, did your WC onsite ask you where the flowers came from or any of that business? Thanks!

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
