      I love all the flowers ladies!  So pretty and I LOVE the colors!


      I never posted my quote from Jan's flowers but I got an awesome price from them (IMO) because I really wanted real orchids.  We aren't using any flowers for centerpieces which is saving us a lot of money, although I'm hoping that I can use the included package flowers from the resort as some sort of head table centerpiece or something...

        I've heard a lot of good things about Jan's. I'm going through Tai Flora because, for what I wanted, it was extremely reasonable and they've been great. In the end I'm getting full white hydrangea bouquets wrapped in turquoise ribbon. It's under $400 for my bouquet, 2 BM bouquets, 5 bouts, 2 wrist corsages & 2 pin corsages.

         

        I'm curious if using another florist incurs a "vendor fee". I know a lot of resorts get people with this.

          Hey Tris!  As far as I know there shouldn't be any outside vendors fees.  That was one of my first questions for Beverly and she said no, so if Chandlyn decides there is, I have my emails from Beverly which will be traveling down to Jamaica with me to prove the original info I was told! 

           

          That is a great quote for your flowers, they sound beautiful!!!  I love hydrangeas!

            So...if the judge fees were originally $400, does that mean that the 2011 prices go down $200 then too?  I know we were supposed to pay the judge $400 cash as part of our package...is it only $200 then?  Heck - if I can save $200 - that's a start!!!

              Chandlyn just sent me the 2011 packages and the judge fee still quotes $400, not sure if this is going to change or not when we get there, either way I dont care (would be nice to save money) but if i have to pay $400 then we will !!!

                I received the following email:

                 

                As per your email below please note that this is not the case where clients for this year were promised next year's price. There is however a similarity with the price for the Free package for this year and next year. This would be the cost of US200 +10% taxes.

                ddedI have confirmed that the Judges

                    Thats good to know :) I think Im going to wing it, I will take $400 with us for the judge just incase but if its $200, then sweet :)

                     

                    Im not so much worried at the moment since we still have 7 months to go !!!
