my photographer said today that for some reason Sandal's resorts dont let you bring your own photographer and they give you a big hassle...maybe something to consider??

Just finalizing starting our plans with vendors etc. I am using Tai Flora for flowers/decor but sticking to the basic package for cake, dinner etc.

We have 47 people booked with 5 weeks to go!

Does anyone have any advice for this venue? I have read a lot of reviews but they are from 2-5 years ago so I don't know how relevant they are now.
Is Tai Flora doing your centre pieces...I have looked at their website and it looks amazing. I was considering doing my own but when I saw that I didnt know. If you dont mind me asking how much are they quoting you to have all of that done?

Hi!

Tai Flora is actually providing our upgraded chairs and archway for the ceremony, centre pieces and table linens for dinner and wrapped palm trees and lit cocktail tables for the after dinner reception as well as our flowers etc. for the wedding (in case you have any other questions).

For the centre pieces, I am doing a white flower arrangement with floating candles and flower petals - 10 at $45 each. Because we are sticking with the free cake and dinner we wanted to spend a little extra for the decor.

Just to add...our whole decor/flower budget was $2500 and Tai Flora has quoted just under $2400 for everything. This includes my bouquet, 4 wrist corsages for bridesmaids, 3 groomsmen boutonnieres (the groom's flowers are free), 5 boutonnieres for parents, 2 wrist corsages for our mothers, 2 flowers for my hair, 45 mahogany chairs for the ceremony, upgraded bamboo arch with white draping (#45 on website), centre pieces, table linens, 3 lit cocktail tables for the after dinner reception and 8 wrapped palm trees.

They have also really impressed me with their correspondence, usually I will receive a reply within the hour of emailing them and it has never been later than the next day.

My planning is not as well as others on this site I'm sure! lol....We're really jut starting to get into things now...looking for dresses and starting to make some playlists, sending out our save the dates. I never really got into planning because I didn't have a date booked so it didn't really feel real yet I guess lol. How's your planning coming along?
