    I've been in contact with several outside florists, and Kreations Flowers is about $500 less than Tai Flora for what I'm looking for. I read in the flower/photographer thread that Chandlyn said that we could use outside florists, but just wondering if anyone has had success with it? I'm starting to stress and need to make a decision ASAP! Thanks!

      Do you have the website/contact information for the outside florist?
      and I would love to hear from someone who got flowers from somewhere else

            I am most likely using Kreations. There is no fee from the RIU to use them. The quoted me a delivery charge of about $35 if I remember correctly. I sent them pictures of the bouquets I wanted and they said they could do it no problem. They are a LOT less expensive. I am currently waiting for them to send me a contract before I send them a deposit.

              Yes, I'm so happy to hear that you are using them as well! They were quoting not quite much less for me as well. Same delivery fee.

              Did Chandlyn tell you specifically about no fee from RIU? I should probably have it from her in an email just in case...

              Makes me so much more relieved!

                I'm so glad you're using them! Yes, Chandlyn specifically told me there is no charge. I can forward you her email if you PM your email address, if you want.
                Did Kreations send you a contract? Have you paid them any money yet?

                  Hi Lizz. I posted this question in pouchie's thread also...

                  I'm worried. I arrive in JA on a Tuesday, but my wedding isn't until that Saturday. Between the transit time of their shipping to my home and then my travel to JA ,will the flowers still be/look fresh? How long do they normally last?

                    The flowers that I'm getting are being delivered to the RIU on the morning of the wedding, so they will definitely be fresh. Who are you using as your florist?

                      I'm finding sorting out the budget to be a challenge...

                      I sent a bunch of Jamaican florists pictures of what I wanted and got quotes. Kreations was by far the least expensive. Here is what I'm getting:


                      Bride's bouquet @ $63.00 - $ 63.00
                      8 Bridesmaid bouquets each @ $55.00 - $440.00
                      2 Corsages each @ $8.00 - $ 16.00
                      Total $519.00
                      Delivery $32.00
                      Grand Total $551.00

                      Here is the pic I sent them:
