Bad Experience With Tai Flora Services In Jamaica - Be warned

Recommended Posts

I'm back, after getting married in May 2012 in Montego Bay Jamaica. I've been meaning to get back on here and put some feedback on my experience with vendors. Please feel free to reach out to me to ask questions on any aspect of my wedding.    The first piece I want to comment on was the unprofessional ending with Tai Flora services, which we ended up choosing as our florist. It was the only real regret we had looking back on the experience. We spent a tidy sum (over US$10k with them), and it was the only real disappointment in the whole affair.   Colours for our flowers were incorrect for our reception - this after meeting a few days before to confirm with our florist Kerry-Anne Fairclough about all the details. The real doozy for us was the expensive Mandap (which is sort of like a Hindu alter). Our invoice had pictures that showed beautiful dense hanging flowers, which we talked about at length. What we ended up with was a few flowers near the front of the Mandap that looked ridiculous. So much so, if we knew that it would look like that, we wouldn't have paid the ridiculous sum charged for it...   This was all pretty disappointing, and the worst part was that once they got their money, they would not respond to any of our requests. We tried getting a hold of our florist Kerry-Ann and the director of operations Sascha Hossmann, but he just refused to respond to us to talk about this. They weren't having it.   Just a warning to all brides who are considering Tai Flora Services - you may not get what you expect, and they won't acknowledge your existence once they get your money - no matter how much you spend.   Good luck. I'll be posting more reviews on our other vendors who, aside from Tai, where honestly all pretty great.   Jaya

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
