    Read my old post.

    To make the long story short: In the beginning, I contacted a # of florists in Maui by get the # from different websites. I called them and left a message but nobody called me back. I know...it was odd.

    So...I did a little more reading and found a bride who had her wedding at the Ritz in Maui. Her flowers were beautiful. I contacted her and she gave me her florist's #. I called the florist and I couldn't believe how good the price was. I asked her about get leis and more flowers and she recommened me to save $$ by getting leis and extra flowers from Safeway in Kihei (supermarket). It was strange but but she was sincerely trying to save me $$.

    Yes...I was nervous but everything worked out. (See photo). BTW...the Safeway in Kihei is one of the very best supermarket I have ever been in. The flowers were all fresh.

    My friends and family were staying at the Westin Villa Kaanapali so she delivered the bouquet to them in the morning. That was really nice. We picked up the leis and the rest of the flowers from Safeway in the morning. The maile lei must be pre-ordered.
    Flowers at the Safeway is like 50% off from the florist.

    We order 2 boxes of freeze dried rose petals and shipped them from the states to our hotel. Advise: do not use fresh petals - use freeze dried petals.

      I would love pictures from your wedding.
      I was not able to post the wedding photos on this forum. Give me your email and I will email you a few small images from the Five Palms Grill.

      We had 14 guests so if you have 30 then it should still be ok. The staff and Kathryn Freeman at the Five Palms were so easy to work with. The timing went really well but there was 1 thing that I would have added at the wedding.

      After the ceremony and group photos...our guests were confused as to what to do next...(they were like sheeps not knowing what to do). We instructed our guests to walk over to the rest for refreshments but they didn't move. It would have been nice if a staff member at the Five Palms walk down from the rest to lead our guests from the beach to the rest. after the ceremony. It REALLY was not a big deal because everything still worked out.

      Another real beautiful rest is The Plantation House. It has a breathtaking view and the food was fantastic! I have photos from the rest. It is worth having lunch there after the wedding. Outstanding service and relaxing. Prices were so much better than Mama's Fish House.
