    Time is going faster and faster, we'll be on the beach in no time!! I actually lived in St.John's for about 5 years before moving to Fort Mcmurray and then to Edmonton.  We will be getting there on August 4th and leaving on the 11th (we were going to stay for 2 weeks but we're actually planning on having another reception and dance in Grand Falls when we get home so we cut it down to 1 week). Too bad we won't be there the same time!!

      beverly told me that there is a bouquet included in the free package. The brides bouquet. But you have to pay for any additional flowers that you want, if you want some for your bridesmaids, or groomsmen.

        Thanks Espejo2be for the PayPal tip!

          Here is the link for the frame from the umbra site. Its where I got it and I think I revieved it like 2 days later after ordering.

           

          http://www.umbra.com...06630-410.store

           

          Also mixes...I was under the impression and hoping that the bartenders would sell it to us and we would set it up down there. Its what Mike and I did in cuba, just make friends with a bartender and give him like $100 US and you will be gold! Thats what I am doing as I cannot justify paying $15pp when we have 42 people and its an ALL inclusive resort!!!

          Do you use this frame at the actual ceremony or do you put this together at a later date?

          Thanks

            Hey,

             

            I have also been in contact with Jans and have everything set but she has never asked me for a deposit...I am assuming I should contact her about this?

              I'm getting my flowers through the resort. I'm not a big flower girl so it doesn't really matter to me. Our quote ended up being $200. That was for 2 bridesmaids boquets, 4 wrist crosages (moms & grandmas) and 5 bouts (dads, grandpa & groomsmen). My boquet and FI's bout are covered. It's not too bad. :)

                      Any one have any issues getting a response from Jan's Flowers?  I sent a request for prices on some centrepieces about 3 weeks ago and they never responded....
