    Hello Everyone....

     

    I was going to wait until they were complete and until I began my planning thread...but.....I can't!!!

    Like many brides on this site, I too am budget conscious as my honey and I are basically paying for our wedding on our own.  Our resort offers pretty flowers but they are VERY expensive.  As we are getting married on July 4th in Mexico...I began to wonder how long any flowers would last in the heat all day....and I paid WHAT?

     

    So...after seeing posts on "real touch flowers" I became curious and wanted to know what they were (it is amazing the lingo you learn as a bride...OOT bags, real touch flowers, MOH, DH, etc...)

     

    Ok, ok....so...I research online and honestly was quite amazed at how expensive even they could be.  I had visited several sites but many were booked well into next year and also were still expensive despite the fact they are not real flowers.

     

    After extensive research...I found Sabella Designs!  http://www.sabelladesigns.com/

     

    Kimberly Zarobsky is the owner and she is AMAZING!  She is extremely passionate about her work and has been wonderful throughout the entire process.  She designs all the flowers herself so the attention is very personal.  Our first conversation was over an hour long and I felt as if I made a friend instantly.

     

    Alright....I will shutup and show the pics...our wedding colors are Yellow, Turquoise & Fuchsia..

     

    This is a picture of my honey's boutonniere!

    Here are the flowers for my MOH & Bridesmaid...

    Lovely...

    Attention to detail is amazing.....

    We still have about 2 months to go and she has kept me updated with pictures during the entire process.  I have not seen my bouquet yet but I am afraid to get the email at work because I will cry....I am so happy with them flowers already.

     

    She is also doing hair flowers for me, my MOH & my bridesmaid, corsages for my Mom, my FSIL, and my future niece.

     

    As I continue to get pictures I will post here and keep you updated with my AMAZING flowers.

     

    Please check out her website....and feel free to ask me any questions!

     

    TO BE CONTINUED........

     



    So Amazing......July 4, 2012!!!!!!

      Those are amazing. I have allergies to almost every flower and am struggling with what to do about bouquet and flowers for the wedding. If you don't mind me asking how expensive were they? I am also very price conscious. We are paying for our own wedding as well and things add up quick. Going to check out the website now.

        I paid $316.94 (including taxes but not shipping).

        Once she has completed them she will let me know the cost for shipping.

         

        I am going to post a price comparison to what I would have spent at the resort shortly.

         

        Please check her out.  She is truly an AMAZING artist...and very nice as well!

         

        Let me know if you have any other questions!

              That is a great price! How are you planning on transporting them to your wedding?

                We plan on packing in suitcases. I intend to get a hard plastic suitcase.

                    Thanks for sharing these are lovely!! I think these "real-touch" flowers are becoming more & more popular. Real flowers don't last very long in the heat & humidity, and the resorts charge a TON. One quoted me $400 for MY bouquet ONLY!!! If I'm spending that kind of money, I'd rather it be on something I can keep forever or pass down.
