    We have booked at the GPR for the 12th of november 2012. We are dealing with Maritza who has been really good at answering my million questions quickly! We are getting married in the Gazebo and having a private 3hr reception in the ballroom. I was concerned as well about being on the beach too long. We are expecting about 35 guests. The flowers are pretty pricey and the package only come's with basic's so to upgrade those will be pretty pricey. What are you guys doing in terms of flowers? What are the main things your asking and how are you changing the packages?

      Hi I'm a GPR bride as well! I totaly understand about the flowers being so pricey!


      I'm trying to come up of ways to cut back on flowers all together.


      1. Brooch Bouquet & Seashell boutonnieres



      2. Centerpieces...I'm bringing my own. Ebay, Dollar Tree & Walmart are my friends!



      3. I'm currently asking for a quote for just colored tulle. No flowers.



      I wanted this for the Huppa...My WC quoted me $500 for this huppa and  aisle. This is out of my budget and out of the question.

        Wow such creative ideas! I love your centrepieces! How many guests are you expecting? And are you having a ceremony indoors or out?

          Everything is on the beach ceremony & reception starting at 4 PM. I just pray that we don't all roast alive out there in the sun.


          We are at about 32 guests and counting right now. It has been a real pain trying to get our guests to book ahead of time. We are a little over three months out and I still dont have all my immediate family booked. GRRRRR!!!!


          I found another florist that another BDW bride reccomended and will be asking them for a quote.

            I guess using an outside vendor for flowers wouldn't be that bad if the price was right and you were getting a decent amount. 1 of the bouquets that I like will cost me about $250 and the bridesmaid's bouquets are all about $100 so paying the vendor might be a good idea. I also wanted flower centrepieces but those are extra as well. I love the pic posted on the other thread... Kinda cool with the lime's in it!

              Centerpiece are the only real flowers I will have....


              I opted out not having real flowers for my bouquet or my bridesmaids. We are having 3 receptions - Mexico, my hometown & his hometown so I thought it would be a waste to have 3 sets of flowers die on us.


              I made myself a brooch bouquet and my bridesmaids similar ones but with seashells.
