HELP Grand Palladium Brides!!!!

Recommended Posts

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 (sshippey@taiflora.com) from Tai Flora and she was wonderful and quick to respond. 

 

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).

    • Let me know if it works. I'm really curious to know
    • I believe that it is absolutely not important what kind of gift, the main thing is that it was presented with all heart. For example, recently my friend had an anniversary and I gave him an original painting in word art style. He really liked it, as I found the right words. Hmm .. Finding out where their first kiss was will be a real problem, but I think it can be solved. Just arrange a walk with them and ask more about how they started dating, where they first met, etc. They themselves will reveal all the secrets to you. I hope you can make an amazing gift for them. Good luck !!
