So I've been talking to my wedding coordinator about bridesmaid bouquets and centerpieces. Are y'all having to pay a small fortune for these items? It is INSANE how much they're charging. I wanted to do roses and hydrangeas, but it seems like maybe that won't work after all. Sadness. :(

What have y'all done and what did they charge you? Thanks!

@Lilgabri03, our wedding is on May 10th and we're having our reception on the sky deck, I'll post photos when we get back! There isn't much info out there on Azul Fives so I will do my best to post a complete review with photos, etc.

 

@khmciver, yes, Lomas is out of control! We are bringing everything with us, I'm not giving them another dime of my money if I don't have to! I'm making my own bouquets, which has kind of turned into a disaster but only because I can't make up my mind, haha! I started out making feather bouquets but decided that I really like the brooch bouquets... Then today I saw a very simple bouquet made from just calla lilies and I thought to myself, well that's pretty fantastic... Ugh, someone shoot me now. Anyway, back to your question, Real Touch makes awesome high end artificial flowers. If I were doing a floral bouquet (which I might still do, lol), I would definitely order these and make my own arrangements. I've also bought some really nice hydrangeas from Micheal's, they have a few different styles but if you look close enough you'll find they've got a high end line made by Ashland that are much nicer than the cheap stems.

@khmciver - if you don't mind me asking, what were you quoted for the roses and hydrangeas?

 

I need to send some images for quotes for centerpieces and bouquets to my coordinator - I'm holding off due to fear haha.

Small centerpiece - mini pink roses, pink roses, white hydrangeas, touch of green $250 (replacing white hydrangeas for white carnations - $125)

@Lilgabri03 - yes they were per centerpiece and per bridesmaid. Ridiculous. I wrote my wedding coordinator back questioning the cost and have yet to hear from her. Not surprising.

Ok… I'm officially freaking out… My wedding is not this Sunday, but the following.  I just found out my coordinator is "no longer with the company" after no response from her for the last two weeks, and the "manager" who emailed me (from her email address) is not replying to my message or responding to my voicemail.  We haven't even paid off the reception balance yet because no one will call me to take the information…  12 days to the nuptials and I may pull my hair out.  

 

Additionally, our photographer, "Caribe Photo" has STILL not sent the link to pay him via pay pal.    

 

Any other Azul 5's brides have issues like this so close to the date?

@mrsrobertkarlik

Was Carol your wedding coordinator? My travel agent told me she left. She isn't my WC. I have Lucy who I have never heard from since she became my new wedding coordinator last week. I hope you get everything figured out! Good luck! Just breathe. It will all work out.

Has anyone had any updates lately? I am beyond frustrated with this hotel. I've been waiting for 3 weeks now to hear what the various venue options are and what their capacity is. Literally 3 weeks. They write me back about other things...just not that. Its' really hard to plan a freaking wedding at their resort when they won't tell me my options!! UGH!!!!
