    Their email is ochorios@taiflora.com. I have been speaking to Jennivie and she responds to my emails very quick. I have planned all my flowers for my wedding in April already. I am getting my bouquet, 3 bridemaids, 2 coursages, 6 boutanerries, 2 gazebo decorations and 2 aisle markers all for $990 including tax, so I dont think they are that expensive. Also with people saying you just get what they have that day.. that is like any florist unless you arrange ahead of time. They said they can guarentee my flowers as long as I give 2 weeks notice so they can get them. I sent them 2 pictures of what I want and they said they will duplicate. They have been great. I just have to pay 25% now and the balance on arrival. I choose white calla lillies and pink star gazer lillies!

        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.
        Floral Fantasy just sent me a price list, and said they will deliver to Ocho Rios for $50. Here is the price list...

            Thanks for posting the website and pricelist for the flowers! I'm going to request a quote from them.

              Thanks so much for the info on the calla lillies. I have my heart set on a long stem calla lilly bouquet and I don't think I'd be happy with anything else. I'm not picky about anything else but I'm not a flowery type so I want something very simple and elegant. Thanks again for letting me know it's possible!!

                    I got a quote from Floral Fantasies and I found them to be rather reasonable. The $50 delivery fee hikes up the price but they quoted me really cheap prices for my centerpieces and my boutinnieres (sp?) I think I'm going to go with them.
