    Does anyone know if calla lillies are a hard find in Jamaica? I mean im leaning towards going w/ fresh flowers out of convenience but my TA says that getting calla lillies in Jamaica may be super expensive. Not sure what to do b/c i have already made my bouts and MOB corsages w/ mango calla lillies.... HELP please!!!

      You can get calla lillies through ROR, but not in the free bouquets. I'm not sure what the price would be for only the lillies, but a bouquet of orchids & calla lillies was $159.
      Take a look on the Tai Flora website to find what you want & then request a quote from them.

      Good Luck

        I got a quote from Tai Flora for Calla lilly bridemaids bouquet and they were 65 I think.. I got a quote for my bouquet with calla lillies and star gazer lilles, 3 x bridemaids, 6 x boutanierres and 2 x coursages for $570.. not bad. I also am talking to another florist and she can do calla lillies too..

            You can contact Tai Flora yourself for a quote, without Chandlyn that is what I did. I will post the other florist email tomorrow, cant get to it from this computer!

            Thanks

              You can get them, but they need at least 2 weeks to special order them. They are not stocked as a general rule. You will need to stay on top of this with your WC and the florist. If for some reason they can't get the lilies or they are the wrong color, you might be SOL.

              You can try Floral Fantasy; Flowers for All Occasions from Negril, Jamaica They are supposed to be adding delivery to OR, but I don't know what the pricing is. I've heard Tia Flora is a little pricey, but have no personal experience with them. We used Floral Fantasies through our resort and prices were cheaper than what they quoted me.

                I picked a bouquet with pinkish/purple calla lilies at first. It was $250 I think, but that didn't matter because when Chandlyn phoned the florist, they didn't have the calla lillies in stock. If you want a specific color, i'd definitely try to arrange it beforehand.

                  Does anyone have Tai Flora's Email address? I would like to email first for pricing ideas.
