    Hello Everyone... So I thought it would be really helpful to send out the quotes that I recieved from the four different places.

    (I'm getting married at ROR.)

    First, after reading this site I discovered real touch flowers and I thought it was a great idea to go with something that will last forever for the bouqets. So, I ordered my bridal bouqet, 2 bridesmaids bouqet, 1 maid of honor bouqet, 3 bouts for the groomsmen, 4 corsages for the mothers/grandmothers, and 3 hair flowers. They were all made out of plumerias, stargazerlillies, and orchids. Cant wait to show you all the actual results. Cost was around $450.00.

    Now I also wanted to have some decorations for the ceremony site, we're getting married at the beach front gazebo. These were the quotes I recieved.

    Hi Shakara,

    Thank you for your great patience as the Valentine's Day week was very hectic for me. Okay I'll be delighted to assist you with the requested info. For a bouquet cascading using white lilies and yellow roses this would cost $ 100.00. The bridesmaid bouquet using a small bouquet of mixed white flowers such as white roses with white dendrobium orchids this will cost $ 40.00

    For the gazebo you can have small archway pieces for $50.00 each going up and pedestal arrangements from $ 150.00 going up. Please note you'll have to add 17.5% sales and $50.00 for delivery to Ocho Rios.

      Jan sounds like the best offer. Did you get a referral for Jan from the forum? May I ask who did you work with for your "real touch" flowers?

          I'm planning to bring my own bouquet to Sandals Grande Ocho Rios. I still need corsages for the mothers, a boutinniere for my dad, and flower petals for the aisle. My TA informed me this evening that the corsages would be $45 each and my dad's boutinniere is priced at $35. Additionally, we're bringing our own chair sashes, fans and programs, and doing a sand ceremony. To set all of this up would be a charge of $300!!!!! Come on now! That's just ridiculous!!

          I wonder if I should contact Jans. Do you think she'd do the corsages and boutinniere for less than what the resort is quoting? How does the delivery of these items work? Would she be allowed on site to bring them?

              Thanks this is helpful. I personally like Jans the most because right after I emailed her she gave me a call and wanted to discuss what I was interested in which made me confortable with her. I will use her for my decor but I think that I'm using parasols and fans to save money and to be different.

                Geez that is alot! The quote jan gave me four bouts were $10 so I can't imagine the corsages would be much more expensive. I don't know the rules about Sandals and outside vendors, but back when I was booked at beaches I know they were kind of giving me a hard time. If they do allow outside vendors I would def recommend Jans because that is seriously a lot of money to spend when you could get it for less than half the price.

                  Exactly! I just need those small items so I may see if she can just meet me right outside the resort with the corsages. It's not like I need her to come in and do an entire set up or anything.

                      Thanks so much for providing us with this information! it's so helpfu. You actually saved me a bunch of time. I had already contacted Jan's and liked the prices she quoted me. I'm not even going to bother with the others because you've already done the work and I think I'll stick with Jan's. Thank you for that!!
