My Real Touch/Silk DIY Bouquet!

Recommended Posts

Right from the start, I had a vision in my head as to what I wanted my bouquet to look like. Turquoise is my favourite colour and to no surprise, is my wedding colour. I needed turquoise in my bouquet some how!


My FI and I are getting married at the Riu Negril with the Free Wedding package that actually does come with a bouquet and boutenniere, but the choices are pretty slim.  The nicest one from the choices consists of purple orchids which just don't go with our turquoise theme.  So, I went with the next best thing!




Ordered the exact flowers I wanted, in the exact colours I wanted.


With some playing around, I am absolutely in love with my bouquet!  I still plan on changing the ribbon a bit before the big day, as well as trim the end, but the flower arrangement is staying as is.


I'm so glad I went with real touch and silk flowers. :)












Next step = figure out how we're going to transport them! ;)

Your flowers are very pretty. I'm considering using real touch/silk flowers in our wedding. Our colors are aqua, lime green and orange and like you I also want aqua to be in my bouquet as well as my bridesmaids. I know finding blue flowers in Jamaica is not going to happen, so getting the next best thing, silk flowers may be it. I also like the idea of being able to keep my bouquet forever. The amount of money spent on flowers these days is ridiculous!

    • 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.
