    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 agree with Yari. I voted #3 cuz it's what I am doing, so it's obviously my favorite choice!

            I say #3 because that's what I did. Easy and saves money. Everyone loved the parasols too!

              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!!

                    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.

                      I would go with number 3, that's exactly what I'm doing!
