Taking extra decor to the resort.

Recommended Posts

At the very last minute ( weeks prior to my wedding ) I decided to cancel the florist and get real touch flowers.  I ordered from afloral, they are easy to assemble and I spent half of what I would spend and got DOUBLE THE ITEMS.  I will post pics when my DIY bouquets are finished.  Seriously my bouquet was $80 (now $50) my BM Bouquets were $50 (now $25) The groom and groomsman's flowers were $25 (now $10)  think about it?

thanks guys!

 

I think i'm going to go with the real touch flowers.

and my bridesmaid can get to keep their bouquet.

 

As for the rest of the decor i think i will try to take down small items.

i hope everything works out.

 

Finger crossed! X

Do you know if preserved flowers will hold up okay in the tropical heat? I decided not to use preserved flowers because my wedding coordinator said it won't last. So, I'll either purchase silk petals or use natural petals. Thanks!

Is your wedding on the beach? If so, you might need to get permission from your hotel to throw silk or fake petals on the sand. For this reason, we have to use real petals for tossing by the flowergirls. Our flowergirls wanted to throw tiny starfish, but I don't want to have to bring these and they may poke someone's eyes out! I might have them blow bubbles :-)

Yes, but the starfish has to be real ones (not the resin or plastic). Maybe your resort is more flexible :-)

    • 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
