    I am shopping around for flowers and decorations for my wedding at ROR in March.  I got quotes from Jan's as well as Tai Flora and Jan's was half the price.  Here is the quote from Jan's:



    Bridal Bouquet - tropical with orchids - $45
    Matching for Groom -$10
    3 Bridesmaids - tropical using chrysanthemums and carnations - 3 @$35 =$105
    3 Groomsmen boutonnieres matching - 3@$8=$24
    Beach decoration with fabric, lights and lanterns =$450
    Delivery to RIU - $20
      I am just wondering why Jan's is so much cheaper, has anyone used them before?  If so, would you be able to post pictures??   Thanks, Tara

      My understanding (based on this forum) is that Jan's is great to work with and their work is on the same level as Tai Flora.  However, ROR has a $200 vendor fee (I am getting married there late in February) so depending on the total quote, you may not be saving too much.  I am still trying to work on getting quotes from Jan's, Tai, and Shangri La (who they told me via email they are also contracted with).


      Good luck deciding!

        Beachbride, are you saying that the Riu doesn't charge the vendor fee for Shangria La?

          I was just  told this week via an email that both Tai Flora or Shangria- La  are contracted with the ROR and neither would have vendor fees. Keisha emailed this to me. Has anyone used Shangria-la? I just emailed them and they responded promptly...havent gotten any prices yet though.

                I got a fab quote from Jans Flowers too...almost unbelievably reasonable and I liked the way she laid out her quote.


                One lady (independent planner) quoted us $800 per table for flowers!!!! $6000 in total for all flowers...no surprises that we didn't go for that option.


                Shangria quote above seems a little high too but I guess it's all relative depending on budget?


                Best of luck!

                    Thanks to everyone for posting these price quotes!  It gives a good idea of what my floral budget will look like. 


                    I also wanted to mention that after reading wedding reviews, it seems that many resort won't charge a vendor fee for florists if they are just dropping off, and most resorts will set up the arrangements according to your plans so that is something to consider.
