I decided to go with Tai Flora. I couldn't find anyone who provided ONLY the flowers. I tried to work with Godfrey Guy, but he seemed a little crazy and very persistent. Plus his quotes were all over the place and we never seemed to be on the same page. I kept sending him pictures of what I wanted and he would send me alternate pictures of completely different centerpieces. He was willing to provide only the flowers, but wasn't reducing his rates any (so I would have been paying for the full centerpiece and arrangement instead of a flower only price). Plus he's received some bad reviews from a few other brides.
I'm honestly still working on the flowers! But it's my fault. I neglected it and now it's a last minute scramble. But Tai Flora is willing to work with my budget and propose ideas (but they are very slow to respond, which is why I don't have anything confirmed yet). The bouquet I initially wanted was going to be an extra $85 using all cymbidium orchids. But then I discovered that debrobrium orchids are one of the choices for the free bouquet. So I'm using dendrobriums (free). And then the centerpieces will be 3 small floral centerpieces of orchids at each table ($15 each) and 2 floating candles with submerged orchids at each table ($30). I'm not doing a huppa (just the arch that comes with the package). I'm still confirming all the prices. And I'm bring my own votive candles and paper lanterns.
