What's in your bouquet?

Recommended Posts

Never wait until 2 months before your wedding to start working with your florist; even if it's recommended... Now that I'm a month out I received a quote for a $2000 definitely not what I'm looking to spend. I reminded her that my budget is about half that, so she keeps pushing "red ginger and orange tropicals." after a google search I'm not too big a fan of the gingers (although I don't know what they'd look like in a bouquet) and I'm still not sure what she's referring to as tropicals. On top of this are colors are orange, yet she keeps pushing red and purple...

 

Anyway, what I'd really like to know is what type of flowers are you using and any pictures would be great? Any links or info to indigenous JA flowers would be great so I can chop this bill!

 

 

 

Thanks!

I wish i could offer some suggestions, but I plan to just go with the bouquet from my free package.

 

good luck though!

Do you need to go with that specific florist?  I'd suggest getting some competing quotes from other vendors.

look into taking flowers with you.  I did clay flowers for my bouquet.

Here's some example.

This vender is back up until September but you might be able to find another one on Etsy or searching the web.  I've heard of other brides doing real touch flowers too.

 

They look so real- I had someone try to smell mine.  And they are a fraction of the cost.  Mine was only $150 I think... or $165. I bought it a couple months ago and all the prices run together after a while.   But I really like that you can keep them forever then.  Mine is the center piece on our dining room table.

 

Good luck!

Ack!  Is that $2000 quote from the florist that the resort recommends?  I'd just thought we'd figure out flowers when we got there.

Have you considered fake flowers?  I'm going through wedideas.com and they have a pretty good ready-to-order section.  I think there's a rush order charge but you might still be able to get an order in.  Even with the rush charge, you won't have to pay anywhere near $2k.  Probably more like a couple hundred dollars.

I got my bouquet and bouts from wedideas. It is en route as we speak. Here is a pic of my bouquet. Its not the finished product, as they hadn't put the ribbon or jewels on it. I got mine and six bouts for less than $200 (girls are carrying parasols to save some $$):

    • I purchased a suit from Studio Suits in spring 2019.  I looked around everywhere because I was looking for a specific color which wasn't easy to find, so when I found it on their website I read all the info on their website where they claim to deliver high quality suits, premium material, great tailoring, etc. It couldn't be more false. First of all the company is from INDIA and you won't find out until you receive the package. You order from Stu Suits and receive the package from Harry Suits. I received a suit that was at least two sizes bigger, the shoulders where different one from another, the hamming on the ankles was visible and poorly done.The quality of the fabric was extremely mediocre. The lining looked and felt cheap, no attention to details and no mention anywhere of the kind of material.  When I placed the order I did not receive any welcoming email, but simply one stating my measurements were  not correct and I needed to pay for a trial suit 99$. I re took the measurements and confirmed them. They simply replied saying "all sales are final". When I placed the order they said it would take them 6 weeks to deliver the "custom made suit". I received it within ten days, why? because it wasn't custom at all. I can't stress enough how bad the quality of their product and service is. There are so many other services that can deliver so much better quality for less than what this con company asks for. Hope this can help you folks
