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? cheesy.gif

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...

    • Hey. Well, I would say that for a honeymoon, Florida is not a particularly good option. My preference in such cases is the paradise islands where you can actually to be alone. If I chose where to fly, my recommendations about choice were Seychelles. Just look at the reviews of these islands, and you will immediately fall in love with them. Also, there are only great hotels such as (https://savoy.sc/blog/honeymoon-in-seychelles/) and many others. My wife and I visit this country every year and try to combine different hotels, and this one is very worthy.
    • 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
