      Thanks for all the kind words, ladies!

      Yes, I did pay for my bouquet. I didn't care for the free bouquets of carnations and daisies, so I chose the bouquet of 18 orange roses for $98. I tried attaching the Tai Floral book of options, but it just failed. It's on the forum somewhere, though, as I have posted it before. There are no prices---you have to email them for those, but they always get back to you within a day. I had inquired about a few bouquets before choosing the orange roses--here are a few prices:

      # 44 $175
      # 54 $129
      # 9 $117

      We bought a matching orange rose boutonni¨re for my hubby which was $10. Then we used the free orchid boutonni¨re that comes with the free wedding package and gave it to his father.

      As for Dunn's, we went there by ourselves which I think is a must! You don't want to feel like you're entertaining your guests and you definitely don't want to keep pausing for them to climb around you and worry about them being in photos. I would HIGHLY suggest you go when it opens at 8:30 and have the whole place to yourselves. We got there at 9:30 and didn't have anyone else there until 11. You could tell it was a little annoying for Michael and us once people started climbing towards us and we'd have to wait for them to get out of the photo. We basically ended it at that time, which was fine, as we'd gotten all the photos we wanted.

      A word of advice---when you pay to go in, they put a big, smudgy purple stamp on your hand. Michael was brilliant and told them, no, no, they're taking photos, so they let us pass. Then when we left, we went back to get stamps, as we were planning on coming back that afternoon with the group. They let us in the second time later that day without having to pay since we had the stamp, so it worked out great!

      Also, water shoes are an absolute must!!!! It's pretty funny to look back at our photos with barefeet and remember how we had to balance on the rocks to take them off and sit on them so they weren't in the pics!

        Oops, I forgot---yes, we did pay for the blue/white tulle. It was $50, as was the aisle runner. I inquired about it to Chandlyn, but she said Tai Floral handles that stuff, so that's who you'll have to contact.

            Thank you for your review. I'm also planning a fall wedding and had originally picked 3 p.m. but I think now I'll change it to 11 to avoid the possible rain!

              Did you order your flowers directly from Tai Flora or did you order them through Chandlyn? I would like basically the same flowers but red roses, and white for my bridesmaids.

                You order your flowers through Tai Floral. I asked Chandlyn and she just gave me their email and told me to contact them. Then, when you sit down with Chandlyn the day or two before your wedding, she has the receipt from Tai Floral and you pay her one total payment for all wedding expenses (steel drum, judge, flowers). The only person you pay separately is Michael.

                You won't even see your bouquet until about 10 minutes prior to the ceremony, by the way. Nekeisha came to my room with it about 10 minutes prior to our start time while Chandlyn went down to pin the flowers on the groom and parents.

                    I am so sorry it did not go as smoothly as planned. The weather is the reason we have switched to february as we experienced the storms when we were there in september and you could guarantee rain most days from 3pm onwards........

                    Your TTD was stunning how much did Michael charge for this?
                    Did you get the photos on CD?
