Flower dilemma...PLEASE help me decide!

Recommended Posts

The one thing that I absolutely can't decide on and that is making me crazy is my flower problem. There are 3 choices. Please tell me which one you think is best. I am leaving this in BDW's hands to decide because I'm going crazy!

 

(1) Get the flowers from RIU. For $35 each I can get either carnations or daisies (not what I really want) for my 8 bridesmaids and 1 beautiful but ridiculously expensive (about $180) of gerber daisies (what I want) for myself. I could get my bridesmaids better flowers, but I would spend more than $1000 on bouquets alone.

 

(2) Get the flowers from Kreations Florist. I found this florist online (Jamaican Yellow Pages). They can get me all 9 bouquets of gerber daisies and deliver them to the RIU for less than $600. I am wary of doing this because no one else I know has used them, I'm worried they won't actually arrive at the RIU and I don't like sending money beforehand to a company that I know nothing about.

 

(3) Use parasols for the bridesmaids and just get the 1 bouquet of gerber daisies that I really love from the RIU for myself.

 

Seriously, whatever gets the most votes, I will do. Thanks girls (and guys)!

I say #3 - only because I remember how excited you were about the parasols AND that way you can get the bouquet you really really want! $1000 for flowers that you guys are going to use for 1/2 hour? I mean really........

I voted for #3, reason being it's what I am doing and $1K for flowers that you won't really like...no way!

I voted #3! ( and it is what I plan on doing for myself as well)

 

Unless flowers are a complete must... I think we can all think of many better ways to spend $1000! Get the beautiful ones you want for yourself and some bright/fun parasols for your girls. I actually polled my own BMs with this question... and they all voted for parasols! :)

I also vote for #3...I'm leaning towards using the parasols myself so that influenced my decision but also, I agree with the earlier comment, do you really want to spend 1k on flowers that will be forgotten about in 1/2 hour? And option #2 I would never do esp. since you dont know anyone who has used that company, its too risky. GO parasols!! cheer2.gifcheer2.gifcheer2.gif

So I voted for the last option Lizz.

I think it's important that you get the bouquet you love for yourself.

My sister didn't end up getting any of the flowers she wanted in the end (not DW) and she is still upset about it! They were beautiful in my opinion, but they were not what she wanted.

 

I was concerned with what the resort was going to be able to provide for us since I didn't like any of their options, but they were absolutely will to work with me.

 

So in my opinion, get what you really want for you and I think the parasols is a cool different idea for BMs.

    • Hey Ladies, I’m planning my wedding for October 2020 and we have narrowed it down to the Now Jade or Royalton Riviera Maya. We are expecting about 50-60 people and want a private reception. We are coming from BC, Canada.  Reading through the forums on here has been super helpful so far!  Something that’s been a bit hard in planning is figuring out all the hidden fees that add up on top of your basic wedding package.  Any tips or advice? Thanks!

    • I think I fhttp://www.cigarjamaica.com/ound what you're looking for: 
    • My parents divorced quite recently, just few years ago after being rather unhappily married for 26 years. My mom caught him cheating. I got engaged a few months ago and a month later with little notice my father married the woman who he was with when my mom caught him. I live in a different country so only met her and her family a few times, they were very nice to me, my father is very happy. I am polite / neutral with her. On the contrary my mom is not doing great at all, she is still in a complete breakdown and a month after engagement she made a scene that she does not want my father at my wedding and hang up on me. When she found out i speak to his new partner she refused to talk to me ever again. It’s been a couple of month now, i tried to reach out but she blocked me. My mom is not really a very reasonable type, i try to take care of her and cheer her up but I cant just sit and talk to her peacefully, it is always a drama when it comes to my father. My grandparents are on her side. I mentioned to my father that i will not be inviting his wife as i don’t feel comfortable making the whole situation much worse and also because i really dont know her well to which he said that he may not be coming then. What do I do about it? It looks like it maybe the case that neither of my parents will come or if my father comes with his wife i may never be able to fix the relationship with my mother....
    • I'm so excited to finally, after 9 years, getting married again!  He's so amazing and we want to have an amazing wedding in Jamaica next year.  Allow me to introduce myself:  I am Katherine,  his grandchildren will call me KitKat! who is marrying a minister that truly leaves me speechless at times the way he loves and cares for me.  Professionally, I am a destination wedding planner/travel agent/award-winning floral designer, so this wedding will be my ENCORE.  Last night, we started out with 50 guests, relatively the larger size of most destination weddings.  Then our guest list grew to 100.  Right! My team right now, does have a contact in Jamaica, that I'm already working with. We are working on the budget, constantly.  The plan is to have all of the details together before Thanksgiving holiday, so that family and friends can prepare to start booking.
