    I'm also learning so much from your planning. Thanks for sharing with us so much information. Do you happen to know if they're going to charge you a vendor fee for Floral Fantasies? 

     

    Supposably if Floral Fantasies just drops off the flowers there is no vendor fee.  We'll see if that happens!

          US - TOTAL   $1,278.30

          Courtney, what is the vendor fee you will have to pay for Floral Fantasies? 100? And do they respond pretty quickly? I've heard lots of complaints with Tai Flora's slow responses.

            I answered the vendor fee question in an earlier post. Floral Fantasies answered that same day. Tai Flora took a week+!

              Hi Courtney.  Great thread!  Are you by chance getting any flowers for the arch/huppa?  I am getting married at the beach in April and also think I am going through Floral Fantasies.  They were cheaper from me as well and responded very quickly.  I spoke to the wedding coordinator and she tells me I will be charged a vendor fee for using them no matter if they are just dropping the flowers off or not.  For as low as they quoted, it's still worth it for me to go through them, I think.  I was wondering that...if I go through Floral Fantasies, will I still get the bout/cake flowers/registration table flowers that come included in the package.  It sounds like you are getting them.  I am just wondering if you asked the question or if you are assuming.  I couldn't get a clear answer from WC!  

               

              Thanks again for the thread!  You've got it wayyy more together than I do and I'm less than 3 months away!

                Hi, Jaclyn

                 

                I am not getting flowers for the huppah.   I am still getting the included flowers from Tai Flora, but I am at the Suites, so I don't know what the Beach does.  It is in our wedding package so we will be getting them no matter if we order other flowers from Tai Flora or not. 

                 

                Happy planning,

                 

                Courtney

                  Our photographer is Sandy May.  She is from Minnesota (my home state) but lives in Jamaica during the winter months.  I found out about her from another IRHS brides.  I got a lot of quotes from different photographers and she was the best (plus it is just comforting to me to know I can go to her location in the U.S. should there be any issues).  My package is as follows:

                   

                  Wedding photography includes:

                  *  Sandy May as photographer for 5 hours, overtime available @ $200 per hour

                  *  Personal website for on-line viewing, editing, and print ordering on Pictage.com

                  *  $100 US gift certificate toward prints ordered from Pictage.com

                  * High resolution disc of all usable photos, color corrected and exposure adjusted with the copyright turned over to you

                  * Iberostar day pass to be paid by client


                  Fee...............................................................$ 1,400.00 US



                  * Trash the dress option available:                             400.00 US
                   pass paid by client
                  Travel expense of $125


                  I just emailed her today.  The pricing she gave you is excellent and also excellent for trash the dress.  I hope she can accommodate my wedding date :)

                    Hi!  She will probably be back in Minnesota in July since she lives there in the summer.   Let me know though what you find out!
