      I don't believe that! That sucks! I travel all the time to DR as I'm from there and never have any problems bringing back stuff.

            This will probably be ridiculously expensive but a mix of debdrobium orchids, callas and/or hyacinths in bright tropical colors (thinking orange, fuschia, yellow) If I go with Secrets, their included bouquet is just daisies and carnations - can you believe that??? It's the Caribbean and you can't even throw in a simple orchid or a cheaper tropical flower? It's like they force you to upgrade the bouquet....

            I love orchids and callas.. I totally agree they should supply better flowers in the tropics for less than a few hundreds of $$.

BUT the shipping is $34.63....so the total for 30 would be $187.63. The other ones that I liked are boarding pass ones that are $5.50 a piece and $10 for shipping....which would come to $175. I just feel like this is a lot of money for 30 invites and that I can either see what staples or kinko's would charge and than see if I printed them myself....only problem with me doing it is having to get the stuff to cut them. But what if I printed them and brought them somewhere to be cut?! Trying to save as much as possible :(

                    I think MissJali proves it's cheaper to DIY, I just don't have the creativity, ability or even the time.  We're doing boarding pass invites off Etsy and with shipping it's going to be about $275 for our invites (40) which I was really happy with since most of my friends paid well over $800!!!!!!  It's hard to if your FI wants you to stick to a budget, you almost have to DIY because stuff is SO expensive. Luckily my FI isn't so much into the planning so he lets me do what I want, says yes to everything and just pays his half without question.  So far that works well for me haha.

                     

                    I admire and continue to be amazed by the talent and creativity of the ladies on BDW though I don't think I could do half this stuff if I tried!
