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!  1-pray.gifShe 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...







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!

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

Mine were fake, and none of our guests realized it until I told them (and they looked at them really closely). Now they are in a vase in our room, and I get to look at them every day - great memories!

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
