    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

            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!
