OK - I need some help from the local ladies...or anyone who has ever planned a party on the Big Island..
My destination wedding is probably going to be planned without the benefit of a pre-wedding visit. I'll be trusting that the site, the catering, etc will all be up to my standards and attempting to plan it all via telephone & e-mail, based on recommendations from you ladies and the contact I have at the resort where we'll likely have the reception. (The added cost of a quick trip from TN to the islands to confirm everything just isn't in my budget, unfortunately...)
I need to know if any of you have familiarity with a vendor for cake and flowers. Depending on where we end up having the reception, the cake might be covered by a pastry chef at the resort. The flowers, however, will likely fall upon my shoulders as I think we are going to choose a church wedding over a wedding at the resort which means no flowers included in the package...
