Hey....in terms of the flower situation, I really did not like any of the options that the hotel package provided. At all! I contemplated Jan's and Tai, but ended up going with Tai Flora in the end.
When I contacted Tai Flora the first time, they were initially very slow to respond (i think it took 2 weeks). However, after our initial contact the communication was quick (within a day or two). I had a fabulous time working with them and found them really easy to work with. Don't be discouraged...its just that initial wait that takes forever for some reason.
In the end, they accommodated all of my requests in making bouquets for myself and my bridesmaids, boutonieres for the men and wrist corsages for the moms. I found the prices really very reasonable for the size of the bouquets I requested. I even had room left in my flower budget to add 2 large arrangements on pedestals to my decor for the gazebo. I can't speak for the quality of the arrangements yet, but I'm hoping they'll be as beautiful as the pics!

I am currently debating going with the free bouquet - although I'm not a fan of most of the options, purchasing an upgraded bouquet - yet just found out from Tai Floral that the bouquet I want is an additional $100; and making my own bouquet with silk flowers.
At least with the silk bouquet I will have it as a keepsake - and also thought that I could do smaller ones for my BM's.
Any thoughts or suggestions about this would really help! I really don't want to get there and regret not doing something myself or getting stuck with flowers I hate.
Thanks a bunch ladies!
