They also need to realize that we are BRINGING guests to THEIR resort...so it almost seems as if they should pay us or the wedding should be free lol. Without us getting married, they wouldn't have that business!!! I think we should start our own resort in Jamaica dedicated to offering affordable weddings!!!!!
     

    Good luck with the meeting with management!

      You go girl! It might help to mention this forum if they're not already aware of it. You have the power to influence ALOT of potential buisness to go elsewhere. We went to a wedding at the nearby Gran Bahia in Runaway Bay and they paid half as much as us for twice as many people!

        There is no way you can do inexpensive with Tai.  They do beautiful stuff but you pay for it.  I was quoted $180 for bridesmaids green cymbdium orchids, $30 for bouts, and the huppa with flowers on each corner $650.  I almost had a heart attack when I saw the full quote with everything I wanted originally.  Hope this helps.

Just wondering what kind of prices to expect, I may need to start shopping for fake flowers.

            Ladies

            I was wondering if anyone knew about the side dishes that comes with the entrees. Someone did post he menu, but for some restaurants it says depends on what is available per market...so what does this eman. Are side dishes technically Rice, Veggies, Coleslaw, etc...Trying to decide the menu and unsure about the sides for program purposes. If you prechoose your menu with> 25 guests are they flexible with accommodating vegans and other preferences (like 4 main entrees)?

                  Starrysim

                  This is what Jodi from Taiflora has quoted me. I have been emailing her since June, and so far, I get weekly responses, and I have decided on a few things and I will tell you all  my pricing, since I know it will be helpful!

                   

                  Boutonieres = Groomsmen with white orchids (make sure she gives you one free, since its included in the package) $20

                  Boutonieres = Dad's are single ivory rose $18 each

                  Wrist corsages - with roses and orchids (it looked really big) was $40, so Im going with just the orchids for our moms at $30 each.

                  Bridal bouquet. = ivory roses, orchids and a bit of light blue hydrangea. = $140. my FI saw the price of that and was grilling me! I told him I really wanted it! and it will be in all of the pictures!

                  the bridesmaids equivalent (which they tell me is smaller) is $80

                   

                  I also noticed 'cake flowers' on my order from them with no fee. She listed it as white and blue orchids.

                   

                   

                  Then we went on to centerpeices. She emailed me a giant list of centerpieces, which were very nice, and the quotes were >$100 each! So I told her that my budget for centerpieces is $60. Thats where she came up with the 3 vases with submerged orchids and 4 votives.

                   

                  There is also a 'signing table' arrangement that they include in the package, I noticed it on my quote as 'free' and it says 'white dendrobium orchids' so Im hoping I can just move that inside to the head table when the ceremony is over.

                   

                  I asked about rose petals for the flower girl and she quoted me $40 for a basketful.

                   

                  There is also 17.5% tax added on! And add 4% if you use a credit card. (that's in the fine print on the bottom of the quote)

                    We have exactly the same plan as you. I didn't save the email but I beleive Sylvia told me the restaurant open at 6 or 6:30, something like that. We are having a very short ceremony and not going crazy with the pictures so we only scheduled half an hour for that. Sylvia told us that 4:30 was early enough to give us lots of time for the toast and everything and get a little of the ealy sunset lighting for our pictures. Allowing 2 hours for dinner (we aren't doing the cake until after we start the bonfire for a late snack) From what I was told you can expect everything to move slower the more guests that you have so take that into consideration too.

                      This is my plan also! Saving the cake for the bonfire is a great idea! But Silvia told me that Uncle Tony's doesn't open until 7:00. Also, in the wedding documents, it states that dinners are expected to be over in 1.5 hours. And the disco opens up at 10:30 pm. So, I have a gap that I may need to fill in with something:

                       

                      4:30-7:00: Ceremony, toasts, pictures

                      7:00-8:30: Dinner @ Uncle Tony's

                      8:30-9:30: Bonfire at Beach

                      9:30-10:30 ?????

                      10:30: Disco

                       

                      I may move the hour 'break' after dinner, change out of my dress and have everyone meet at the bonfire at 9:30, not sure!
