      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


        Married! xo

          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!

I'm taking down Preserved Orchids (white with pink accents) to scatter around the tables and also having them place one on each plate with the seashell.  :)

              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 :-)

                      Throwing small starfish is a great idea.  I'm definitely going to check with my resort on that one!
