    I'm going through the same frustrations!! They are horrible to get back to and sooooo expensive!  The flowers included in the package are cheap looking and not worth it!  I'm going to have them supply my arch and other items, but for my bouquet, I'm going to do my own thing.  Outside florists for a really nice bouquet are like $40 compared to $200!

      Well, I know that the agreement says to use Tai Flora, but I see so many brides using outside flower shops, so I figure it's not a strict rule.  It wouldn't be a dealbreaker for me, so there's no point arguing about it.  I'll deal with it in a few months, once we have the bridesmaid dresses and I'm ready to choose flowers.  At this point, I don't even know who my bridesmaids will be, so I have bigger things to worry about. lol

       

      I never received anything to sign from Nicole at the Suites.  Which reminds me, I need to email her to cancel my date.  So if anyone wants Nov 16, it will be available :)

        Wow, I was totally wrong.  Nicole did send me the agreement when she confirmed the date, and said that I didn't need to sign it.  I can't believe I missed that email altogether!  The text is pretty much the same as for the Beach, one of the few differences is for the flowers, and it's not even up to date with Tai Flora.

        I think it's also important to note that the agreement doesn't really lock you in to anything - you can still cancel without any penalty, unless you've sent in all your legal paperwork, in which case they charge you $100.

          btw, what's holding you back from choosing your bridesmaids?

            ...that is why I decided not to do bridesmaids....I didn't want to bother with the extra headache...but this is my second wedding..for my first wedding.. I had friends that were mad they weren't chosen, fights over the dress, color, etc...I did not want to go through that again.

              Oh, we just don't know who's coming yet!  My first maid of honour got preganant unexpectedly, and she's due one week after our wedding, so she can't come.  Other girls - one is doing IVF, trying to get pregnant, won't be able to come if she does.  Other one's father just passed away.  It's been one thing after another.

                Wow, it sounds like babies are preventing you from deciding on who's in the wedding. But babies are fun too though. Gd luck figuring it all out :-)

                Yeah I have been able to decide on my bridesmaids but it was hard bc I didn't want to hurt anyone's feeling. Thankfully they all took it well....atleast as far as I know ;-) But my FI only has a best man so far.  This is because his best man is the only one he for sure knows will be able to come, the others its kind of a wait and see who actually books! I hope my ladies don't fight about the dress or anything like that! I know they don't love fushia but its not about them...its about what colors I like :-)

                  I was just wondering because I know we are coming into the rainy season.  If have any brides have been in Jamaica recently, how's the weather been??

                      It will always show rain everyday! lol but I was there April 17-May 2nd and it was sun the whole time except rain one afternoon. It usually rains over night and sometimes in the late afternoon for about 30 mins max.
