Do Your Own,flowers Or Get The Ones Offered By The Resort

Recommended Posts

I really want to do my own flowers but wondering about traveling with them. Has anyone did either of these. And if so how did it go.

I actually had a real-touch flower bouquet made by a local vendor here in Southern California and then flew with them, and then a family friend made our centerpieces for the wedding reception. Everything traveled extremely well, it's a matter of packing your florals correctly with enough cushion so they don't get flattened out. And then also the willingness to "fluff" them and fix them should you need to once you arrive to your destination. It's totally a great idea if your destination is a place that either doesn't carry the flowers you want or if they're simply too pricey. Also a good option if you want your flowers to look exactly how you envisioned. Surprisingly for me, having my flowers made was actually much more affordable and now I have wonderful keepsakes as well :)

 

Here's a photo of my bouquet ...

It really depends on where you are getting married, if you enjoy DIY and you have time.  I do not see why it would be impossible.  I ´ve had in the past a bride fly from the UK to have a DW in the Riviera maya , and had her own bouquet made from artificial flowers only because she wanted to keep it afterwards.   The centerpieces were real flowers made by a local florist.

 

 

hope this helps

 

Happy Planning

Hi! I did all fake flowers except for my bouquet. I just put them all in a carry on and brought them down. They were fine when we got there :) 

 

Our resort charged way too much for natural flowers, which is why we went the fake flower route. If your resort charges you something decent, or if they let you work with an outside florist that can give you good prices I would go with natural flowers :). Our resort didn't let us use another florist.
