      Having the girls bring their own is such a good idea!  I was definitely going to try to spread some things out, but I didn't think of specifically giving them their bouquets beforehand.  Thanks!

        I've decided on going with fake flowers. My main reasoning is that the free bouquets offered with my resort aren't what I want and then I got to thinking - why spend a ton of $ for a real bouquet that I want but probably can't even really bring back home? So, I've recently orderd the flowers that I want from afloral.com and plan to make my own bouquet.I bought enough for my bouquet, FI's bout and some extras for decorations - all of that incl. hefty shipping to Canada came to $52 (the flowers before shipping were in the $30s). And let me tell you - they look AMAZING in person.

         

        I hope to actually get my bouquet together after Christmas (things just suddenly got too busy) and I'll definitely post pictures when I'm done. I love DIY'ing so I figured how hard can it be to make a bouquet?


        I tried putting together an order at afloral and they quoted me $110 for shipping to Calgary...how did you get your shipping for so cheap in Canada? I thought this might save a bit of money, but with that high of shipping, it doesn't look too good for me now..

          I was absolutely, under no circumstances doing FAKE flowers at my wedding. .  .then I got quotes from various florists on the island!!!  Sooo...I thought maybe I should at least consider it lol. 

           

          Being scared as I was, though, I ordered samples from Wedideas in the different types of flowers I was considering - we could not believe the quality when we got them.  No one believes me when I tell them they are fake flowers.  I keep them in decorative vases on my counter! 

           

          We placed out order with Wedideas last night.  I got my bouquets, my MOH, BM, everyone's bout, and my mom's corsage.  I added bling and fancy ribbons and it was all still cheaper then what Hawaii's florists were quoting me!  The shipping from Florida (where they are) to Arizona was only $23 for everything.

           

          I cannot wait to get my rose and plumeria bouquet!!!  I'm actually able to afford the flowers I want doing it this way!

            I have been going back and forth with this also. I get my bouquet and my FI bout included with our package, but I won't get my other flowers through the resort...its INSANE what they are trying to charge people. I will either do real touch or call a florist out of the resort and have them deliver it as a "gift". The only problem with both options is with real touch I will have to bring them with along with ALL the other stuff I will have to try and fit in...and with getting them while I'm there, I will have to actually have to put them together when I get there (day of?). Decisions decisions...

              Got my flowers today from wedideas! I love them! I dont think anyone will know they are fake unless they really examine or touch them.
