I did NOT use Tai at all.. I brought my own real touch flowers. thats right 4 bouq., 4 bout., and 2 corsages. spent about $150 for the flowers ribbon and accessories (free shipipng) and the hotel provided flowers on the gazebo from the hotel garden. I brought my own organza ribbon for the white folding chairs on the beach, and my own aisle markers made of rafia, curling ribbon, and a starfish on each (6 markers in total) oh and BTW I bought an aisle runner from another bride on this site I packed it in my husband's suit bag and he carried it on the plane. all the other flowers were carried my a few of my guests who flew Caribbean Airlines (since there is no baggage fee) I got married in september and my flowers are STILL in great shape, i was even able to bring them home and use them again for my at home reception. The beach area is beautiful enough no need to over do it with too many flowers, I see people do that on here all the time, they dress their ceremony site like the are dressing a church. remember beach weddings are kind of simple, not draped with every ounce of tulle or ribbon u can find.
Chair sashes do make the difference on the white chairs but again not required.
NOTE: for the ceremony site all rose petals thrown on the beach MUST BE REAL or they won't let u use them.
I'm getting married at the ROR in May 2012, I just wanted to ask you about flowersâ€¦ my bouquet and my FIâ€™s boutonniere are included in the package. We have requested a quote from Tai Florist for d©cor and the bridal partyâ€™s arrangements. I donâ€™t want to spend a fortune on the flowers, etc but we have chosen the free package so we literally have no decorations at the ceremony site. Any advise on the set up? Did you use Tai?
Thanks so much!
