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.

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.

    • 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.
