Nicole said Jodi-Ann was on vacation and today was her first day back. She was gone for a MONTH??????  They could have advised their potential clients about that or at least have someone take over in her absence. I was of the impression that we were not allowed to use any other flower vendor. Can you please give me your contact info for Floral Fantasies (email preferable) because I think I am going to forward to them my flower proposal and see what they can do for me.  Hopefully Staschell gets on the ball and gets you the info you need quickly!  Good luck!

    The email address for Floral Fantasies is wazrose38@yahoo.com and the contact was Chantal.

      I contacted Floral Fantasies yesterday and have exchanged 3 emails with them already! I love having someone actually respond to me.

       

      So we would need to pay the Vendor Fee of $100 to have Floral Fantasies just drop off bouquets and boutineerier?

       

      As far as the free stuff we recive from Tai that are included in the package does anyone know what that entails beside bridal bouquet and groom's boutineerier?

        Has Floral Fantasies given you quotes??  If so, could you share the prices?  It would be good to know how they compare to other prices that ladies have posted.

          Hi Ladies,

           

          I read on a previous thread (Iberostar Grand Rose Hall Brides 2012) that the Grand is limiting photographers to a certain few. Is this true?! I booked Misha Earle and now I'm scared!!! HELP!

            It also included flowers for your cake and a small arrangement for the registry table at the ceremony. If you decide to still go with Tai Flora but not go for these freebies they give you a whopping $48 credit to your floral bill.

              The first quote was a little higher for the bouquets, but then i went back and asked if they could change the flowers to something a little cheaper, and they responded like 2 hours later:)

               

              Bridal Bouquet with star gazed lilies and white cymbidium orchids for $100

              Smaller bridesmaids bouquets for $65

                Does anyone have pictures of the bamboo canopy that Iberostar provides?

                  I don't have a photo of the canopy but I am wondering if you get your choice of canopy/arch/huppa or they just provide you with one?  Also wondering if anyone has a photo of the chairs at Uncle Tony's with no covers?  I was thinking about not using the covers if I have the choice.

                    I also contacted Floral Fantasy and they are MUCH more reasonable than Tai Flora. I was quoted $190 for my bouquet at Tai Flora and Floral Fantasy says they can do it for $130. Also, same price on boutinneires as you got and significantly cheaper for Bridemaids bouquets and mothers corsages. Even with the travel to the resort (which is only $30) it's still way cheaper.

                      Hey Court,

                       

                      Floral fantasies gave me a few quotes today that I am quite happy with.

                      My Bouquet - blue dendrobium orchids, green cymbidium orchards and peacock feathers- $130 (vs $190 at Tai)

                      Bridesmaids- one single cala lily and a peacock feather- $15 (vs $30 at TF)

                      Corsages- Blue dendrobium orchards (wrist corsage)- $20 ( $45 TF)

                      BLUE DENDROBIUM ORCHID BOUTONNIERE- $5 (vs $25 TF)

                       

                      So basically, other than my bouquet everything else was HALF the cost of Tai Flora. It comes out to be $332 vs $540. Now that $332 includes the travel cost which is only $30 and then of course I would have to pay the vendor fee so I guess $432. Either way, we still save $120 that we could use towards something else.
