Hello Ladies

 

I am in need of some serious help! I'm getting married at Now Sapphire, and I'm sure like many other resorts, the floral arrangements are very pricey. I'm also from Canada so I have to convert everything to Canadian dollars which makes the resort floral arrangements even more pricey.

 

I've thought about making my own artificial floral arrangements? Has anyone done this? Any advice? Did your flowers make it through customs okay? Did they pack easily?

 

Any other ideas on what to do?

 

I don't know what to do! Please help!

Hello,

I actually brought my own bouquets/boutonnieres etc. I went through an Etsy vendor called stemple shop. I ordered bouquets of real touch peonies. 

 

It's definitely possible to bring your own flowers and it will save you a lot of money! Mine packed really easily and when I unpacked them they were fine, they weren't squished at all.

Thanks so much! I will check that Etsy shop out.

Hi @@banana2016

 

I'm also doing the same-- I'm buying the silk/fake flowers from a wholesaler here in Vancouver and assembling the bouquets myself. I've youtubed it as well and it honestly doesn't look TOO difficult. I also want peonies which are super expensive down in Mexico so we've opted for the silk flowers instead ;)

 

Hope that helps!

@@jes0912 Thanks for replying! What wholesaler are you using? I make trips to Vancouver every so often. Maybe I'll check it out. I love peonies as well!

Did you also bring artificial flowers for your reception decor/center prices?

I am also considering doing this as well! It's great to hear some input from others. Any brides from Edmonton? I'd like to see if there's a good place here where I can see the flowers in person for the sake of color-matching

Can I asked how you packed them? Did u keep them in the original packaging from stemple shop or repack it? Just curious. I'm really worried about traveling with bouquets

Can any diy brides share some tips on making your own bouquets and boutinnaires? Making mine is definitely a cost saver, however the task seems daunting
