flower and canopy question

Recommended Posts

OK so I finally heard back from our wedding coordinator she quoted me $133.00 for:

 

7 green cymbidium orchids @$12 each = $84

 

3 Ivory roses @ $4 each + $12

 

Fee for making bouquet = $25

 

Single white cymbidium orchid for hair = $12

 

Total = $133

 

I also asked her about their pricing for a canopy rental and she said

 

"They usually start at around $300 plus delivery"

 

For those of you who have already priced out canopies and flowers does these prices seem high or about right?

Where did you order your canopy from? Was their a delivery fee or was it included? WIP marks things up so freakin high that I use them at a pricing point and "hope" to find it myself for cheaper, if all else fails I book through them.

Maye is sourcing it for me. The $300 includes delivery and set up. Sorry - I don't know where she is getting it.

 

Are you sourcing flowers yourself? If so, ask the florist if they can supply a canopy for $300 including set up. Don't ask them how much it would cost for a canopy - just give them the price and then ask them to supply a picture of what it would look like.

are you trying to insert pic into message or post a link to pic...

if you want to insert, the best way is go to photobucket/shutterfly/website, copy pic, paste it into message

OK - cool, so I can just right click on the picture in photobucket and then paste it in?

 

Trying... Darn it - it didn't work. I didn't see a "paste" option. Maybe I didn't set up my account correctly?

Hay Tammy, I am getting a canopy w/fabric only (read: no flowers) for $250 from Maye. It's a bamboo chuppah type thing - just pretty & flowy, light & airy. Just what I wanted!

 

I got a horrendous quote for the same thing from Fun & Motivation some time ago, it was like $800 plus delivery, plus set up, plus tax & service. Total came to over $1K. Fricking rediculous, huh? Anyway, I think $300 should be about right.

Actually the pricing seems very competitive. For the flowers, especially the orchids that sounds about right. Are you using them for the bouquet, corsage, boutonniere. Make sure the appropriate people know since they have to be wired if used in an arrangment. The canopy pricing is about the best that I've seen! Keep us posted...

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
