Beaches T&C brides! *bouquets*

Recommended Posts

I am going with the BB wedding at Beaches also. I decided to order real-touch flowers instead of going with the ones that come with the BB package. I wanted to be able choose the style and colors that I liked and I want to be able to keep my flowers.

Customs issue is mainly because of bringing different bugs into the country. I have seen some really pretty real touch flowers but because I love real flowers I opted to go that route. It's definitely just personal preference.

It's good to know that there is a chance of changing the orchid colors in the BB package. I am bringing my own real touch bouquet, but I'd like to use fresh orchids for centerpieces...except I want fuchsia orchids instead of the purple ones they offer. I really hope this is doable.

My WC in Miami told me that the only two colors they offer for BB weddings in the orchids is white or purple.  I tried to push my way into other colors without paying for an upgrade, but no luck.  Since my colors are hot pink and orange, and I am trying to save money, I am bringing real touch flowers for me and the wedding party.  Plus, we can't take real flowers home anyway.  No one will know the difference in the pictures wink.gif

blech...that's not what I wanted to hear Josie, lol. I'm fine with using real touch flowers and bringing them myself, but I thought since the orchids are included in the BB package that I could save some money by not having to purchase more real touch flowers.

 

This may be a stupid question, but does anyone know if you don't use any flowers from the resort, do they credit anything back, like a credit that you could use towards other upgrades?

I read on Facebook (on the "Fans Who Love Sandals Weddingmoons" page) that blue orchids are available with the BB package, in addition to the standard purple or white. 

 

There is a new floral catalog that just came out which includes different colors and variations of the flowers offered.  I think it literally just came out yesterday so you might want to check with your WC again.

Yep, there is a new catalog. My TA emailed it to me but I was in the middle of upgrading the Adobe software on my computer at work when I received it and then started having computer issues, so when I left work, my IT guy was still working on my computer and I haven't been able to look at it yet, lol. I'm dying to see it!!!

I have also been wondering about floral upgrades. I don't really like the standard ones in the BB package, and I absolutely LOVE flowers, so I definitely want to have a beautiful bouquet on my wedding day and in my pics. 

 

I know this is a stupid question, but how do you travel w/ real-touch flowers without messing them up (even in your cayy-on bag)??  I do not know much about "real-touch flowers", but it sounds like the way to go if you want to save money and have pretty flowers. :-)

totally not a stupid question!  I wondered the same thing too and read that some (most?) people keep the flowers in the boxes they were shipped in and pack it directly into your carry-on suitcase.  The flowers will already be packaged for travel via the mail so they should hold up no problem in your suitcase!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • 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.
