Hey ladies! Is anyone using Tai Flora for flowers and decorations? I'm just wondering what their prices are like. They directed me to the manager in Ocho Rios but she hasn't gotten back to me yet.. I've tried contacting her a few times. I just want to see if it's worth it to use them or if I should just bring my own decorations! Thanks:)

    Tai Flora is slow to respond.  The bouquet upgrades are expensive (around $100 and up) but from what I've seen posted in this thread, the free bouquet with tropical flowers is pretty nice.  The centerpiece for $15 is a 10inch cylinder with submerged orchids and floating candle…similar to the below.

    Ok thanks! I'm leaning towards bringing my own stuff as long as it's not too bulky. I wanna see if I can rent an arch for a beach wedding instead of the gazebo, we have a pretty big wedding party and I think we might look too squished. Although I could probably get some bamboo and build one while I'm down there... Lol

      hi - My fiance and I are getting married there in Dec. 2014 but we're trying to plan trips for our guests...how were you able to get the prices so cheap?  when we looked around for trips - the cheapest we could get things were trips to Negril for $65pp - are you chartering a bus etc?  We feel like we're being overcharged for things just because we don't know any better...

      Yes, the extra prices are annoying. I make myself feel better about them when I think about how much I would be spending if I decided to have a wedding, just as nice, at home. 5 grand in Jamaica vs. 40 grand at home for something equivalent :)


      hmm, if you add in how much it costs for everyone to fly and stay at the resort, it is not less expensive to get married in Jamaica lol

          So with only 21 days left to the wedding (and 18 days before I leave) I am having a dress crisis.  The alterations went horribly wrong and I now have to take it to another lady to see if she can fix it tomorrow.  The hem is not even (too short on one side) and now that the train was mostly taken away, there is too much fabric bunching at the sides and front of the dress.  I look preggers in my dress. I wonder how much this will cost me to fix it properly?  I am so upset. If it can't be fixed I may have to go buy something off the rack.
