    I'm getting married in November and decided to go with the Sapphire package (I was originally going to go with the Waves of Love).  I've been working with Tai Flora directly and doing upgraded reception flowers (lots!) and centrepieces for my reception at Blue Lagoon and the price worked out more favourably than going with the Waves of Love and doing upgraded centrepieces, linens, etc. I'm getting exactly what I want, instead of making it work.  I'm probably going to just take down chair sashes in my colour and my favours.

     

    I struggled with my decision but ended up going with the package that suited my vision.  I also knew that we probably wouldn't use the extras included in the other package like parasols and breakfast :)

     

    Good luck picking!

    Thanks for all your input Ladies :)

      Is Tai Flora the Flower Shop that the Grand Palladium deals with?  Have you seen what the Sapphire package looks like?  I'm just looking at making the ceremony really pretty since I'm not having a private reception.  I wonder if, I get my own flower from Tai Flora, I can bring them in to the restaurant we decide to have the supper at?  Now you have me thinking...lol

      Thanks for the input.

      :)

      Wow your wedding is soon approaching...How exciting!!!!

        What I meant by "does Grand Palladium deal with this Florist" was. do they have a problem with them coming onto the resort to decorate?  Do you have to pay for a day pass?  If that's the route I decide to take, do I figure it out with my WC?  How did you communicate with Tai Flora?  So many questions..LOL

            Tai Flora is the official flower shop for GP, so no vendor fee and no problems.  Highly suggest working with them because they will give you a better price compared to what GP will quote you.  I worked with Sandy Shippey (

                On if they will move your ceremony flowers to the restaurant... I'm pretty sure they will, but that's definitely a question for your WC.  I know they would have if you had a private reception, but unsure what they allow at the restaurants.

                    It worked out cheaper for me personally, as the centrepieces were not outrageous ($40 vs. $125 at the resort).  I'm not having to work around the resort at all.  I asked Natalie about additional flowers and upgrading my bouquet, corsages etc. and she told me to work directly with Tai Flora (I'm working with Sandy Shippey).
