My wedding is going to happen at CSA in Aug of 2011-- but i'm a planner, so Ive been thinking about the details.
Can you post a photo of you with your bouquet from couples? Can you also tell us if its an upgrade?
This is one thing that i'm nervous about because i know what colors i want, but i'm not sure if they're going to be able to create what i'd like. So please post!!
Ash have you contacted Debbie, I am getting really concerned about my bouquet as well, mostly for the cost as I know I want to upgrade it. I am going to send her an email later today with a picture and see if she can get a quote for me.
Yeah i sent her an email yesterday and she asked me to email her a picture of what i want. But i want to see choices!! I know what colors i want and what general shape i want... but i havent found one that i would like to duplicate.
carrie - I love that bouquet. I also got a quote from Debbie on a bouquet I was looking at and my quote was 170.00 way more than I was willing to pay. I have attached a picture. If for some reason it does not work cause I have no luck attaching pictures. Its very similiar to yours Carrie but it also has asiatic orange lilies.
sunstars - I love that bouquet!! Wow, it's gorgeous. But holy expensive. I don't understand why the flowers are so expensive. I was thinking I'd pay $50 for an upgrade, nothing like the prices we've been getting quoted. I'm really disappointed.
Carrie - The only explanation I can think of is they have to import those type of flowers in? I wish I could see what the resort has to offer and not the few that are on the couples website. This frustrates me. I am afraid ordering these through Debbie then seeing something else I love when I have my meeting with the coordinator. so frustrating! I am also thinking of contacting a local florist in my area and see how much they would charge for a bouquet like that. I wanted something very tropical but I am also very picky on the colours. UGH!
It says on the site that they can make any arrangement to suit your budget or color choices. Blue is a tough color to do apparently though... you may be limited. However, yellow shouldn't be a problem. That was what i was told.. bc we're doing purples and yellows as our colors. Hope that sets your mind at east a little bit
As much as I love gerbera daisies, I think I'm going to change my bouquet upgrade to include native jamaican flowers. I just don't think I can justify spending so much for a bouquet. I did some research online and I'm going to ask for a bouquet of Bougainvillea, Orchids, Ixora and Hibiscus in shades of red, fushia and orange. Surely the native flowers should be less expensive??
I have booked a florist here, and she will be doing real touch flowers for me, when I get the proofs I will post them. I am having a variety of flowers including birds of pardise, totally different from my orginial bouquet I wanted.
I agree Carrie, go for the more natural flowers and it should be cheaper.
