Ellie told me that. Has anyone else been dealing with Ellie? I think it's funny that everyone is getting different answers :(

I’m dealing with Laura from Toronto…is Ellie in Montego Bay or Toronto? If you really want it, I would email her and ask her about the day pass….

Have you considered using real touch flowers? I've been looking at bloombridal.com they are in Toronto. They aren't "cheap" but at least you can keep your flowers after the wedding, they are beautiful too!!

Ellie is in Toronto. In the same office as Laura.

I'm not a fake flowers kind of girl but when you consider the price the resort charges and that you rally only get them for one day fake seems like a better option. And I'm really shocked at how far fake flowers have come. They truly look real!

I think that's why I'm frustrated! $200 for a bride bouquet I'm only going to have in my hand for probably max 4 hours is crazy! :S

I've received quotes from a few people that make real touch bouquets. Most are coming in around 150$ for a 10" bouquet. I'm defiantly going that route. I can spend the $50 elsewhere. There are lots of vendors for them On etsy and most will customize the bouquet to you exact specs.

What about packing them? Will they be in a box in your luggage?

I've heard most girls put them in their carry on and ask each bridesmaid to do the same. I guess if they are wrapped in tissue they should be fine. And supposedly if they get any wrinkles they can be easily taken out with a hair dryer, but the real touch flowers are made of latex so I can't see them getting wrinkled.

That's good to know! Because that's what I would be most worried about!

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
