    BEAUTIFUL!!  Thanks so much for sharing!  Your wedding looked like such a blast!   Could you possibly share the prices for Tai Flora's flowers?  I loved yours and wanted to get a rough estimate of how much they will end up costing us.

      We have the same table number frames.. Ikea?  Where did you get the Raffia fans and pashmina's.  I need to order fans for sure.

       

      It seems like you brought TONS of stuff down with you.  Did you bring extra suitcases or have it shipped?  I think bringing tons of stuff down/back is my worry - I don't want to be stuck with all of that and so am just not sure how much I really want...

        Thank you!! I am not sure if Tai Flora keeps the same prices across the board, but you should def use you imagination when it comes to your flowers and they will make it happen!! Here is what I pulled up from one of the quotes I saved on my CPU (I added a few extras last minute, after meeting with Jodi-Ann so we paid a little more)...

              - Bridal Bouquet= $165

              - Bouts for Groom and Father: $20 and $28 (I guess one of the colors cost more)

              - Mom's Corsages: $40 for both

              - Mini Toss Bouquet (replica of mine): $60

              - Aisle Makers x2: $200 for both

              - Small Arrangement x2: $70 each

              - Orchids for CPs: $15 each

         

        Good luck!! They provided excellent quality!! Even better than most flowers here in the US. On the day off, the flowers came a few hours before the ceremony, one of the bouts were wilted (according to the WC, I didn't see it), they went back and replaced it for an even better one! 

         

        One tip... ask the coordinator to have your flowers delivered to you room after your wedding. I wish I would of so we could enjoy them for the remainder of the stay!

        Yup good old ikea!! I got the raffia fans from oriental trade, I have some extras for sale if you were interested. The pashmina, my aunt got for me (she lives in Hong Kong). The fans were a BIG hit! And so were the pashmina's, some of the single guys were even getting them and saying "oh I am taking this back to my mom or a girl back home," lol!

         

        We took 7 suitcases, shoot me, and my mom brought down 1. The WC said she didn't recommend shipping because with it being another country there is no guarantee it will make it to the right hands. We brought most of it home... but a whole bag was OOT bags (which was empty on the way home), another wish lanterns (we used up), and I was able to put stuff together and not really worry if it got messed up or not since it was over and put some suitcases inside one another. We also used one of the empty suitcases and put my dress and his tux in it for the way home (we carried them on, on the way down). It all worked out!!

        Thank You!! I got the bio hazard bags from the hospital and the zip cosmetic bags at target in the travel aisle.

                Wonderful thread!  Everything was gorgeous.  Did you have any trouble checking the matchbooks in your bag?

                  Thank you!! Funny you ask, my mom nearly had a breakdown when crunch time came and she found out I was packing these. She was so worried. But we had no issues!! I figure, if they asked I would be honest and tell them they are gifts for our wedding guests and if need be I would through them out. But brining wedding stuff into Jamaica is alot easier than bringing it back to the US. GOOD LUCK!!
