I have learned patience from this process, but I e-mailed them back in August/September and STILL no response! I laugh because it's just crazy!
We went with Floral Fantasies. Their pricing is much better from what I've been seeing from TaiFlora comments on here. I'm working with Chantal specifically. They do charge a delivery fee, and as long as they aren't "staying" all day, they don't charge a vendor fee for them. (Get that in writing yourself though from the WC, to be safe!)
I sent her pictures and she offered suggestions and has sent multiple pictures of different vase options. We are also renting chairs from them b/c I hate the chair covers that are offered. We are paying for the girls bouquets and I think it was a $10 rental for the vase for the reception.
My experience so far with flowers has been the easiest of all the planning! I just pray the flowers are as nice as she promises they will be!
OMG you sound just like me hahahaha. I have no desire to use the chairs from the resort either -so I plan on renting them as well. Thanks for the referral on Jans Flowers I sent them an inquiry but so far haven't had a response and its been weeks. They are actually a preferred Vendor now at the Riu (before it was just TaiFlora) so I won't have to pay a fee. I think I will try to email her at the email address the resort gave me --I had emailed originally from their website -maybe it never went through.
I am sure all will go well with your flowers -sounds like you did your research Thanks again!
