    Thanks!!! I am still waiting to see my bouquet, hair flowers and corsages....

    My thoughts exactly.  Depending on how easily I can get my family to give them up after, I may consider selling them. The amount the resorts charge is crazy.  I actually got the pictures of the flower options from the resort and I was honestly not impressed.

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.


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

      They look great! Can't wait to see your bouquet as I'm sure you're just as anxious :) I too will be doing real touch flowers as I had the same concerns of cost and the humidity. I'm actually meeting the lady who will be making them tomorrow. So I'm looking forward to see what ideas she has. Thanks for sharing your pics!

        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.

          I got a cool Mother’s Day gift…..My wonderful “real touch/silk) flower designer Kim (of Sabella Designs) sent me a picture of my bouquet!!!  She also sent pictures of the corsages!

          It is amazing to see your vision start to come together.  In a few weeks, I will begin my planning thread!!!  Yippee!!!

          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........

                  Very pretty!!!  I would imagine they're alot lighter than real flowers too.  A large bouquet like that would be quite heavy which is one reason I specifically told our resort I want a SMALL bouquet!  We are only getting 1 bouquet which is included in our resort package or else I would have considered the real touch.  Glad you're liking the results!!

                    Those photos are gorgeous!! I'm amazed by how real they turned out! The embellishments are lovely as well....the starfish add a real beachy feel!!  For those of you using the silk flowers, what will you do with the flowers included in your resorts wedding package? Are you still using them as decoration or will you use the cost of flowers towards something else? I'm just trying to weight the pros and cons of using the silk flowers. Insight?
