We also have to re-adjust invoices, and credit accounts once invoices have been sent in. We appreciate your cooperation in this matter.

FLOWER COLOR, AVAILABILITY
Regarding Flower Colors and Shades, different computer monitors show different shades, and we have to accept what shade comes into the Island as most flowers are flown in when ordered. So we cannot guarantee an exact shade of flower, but will do our absolute best. Also, all flowers, greenery and vegetation must pass through The Department of Agricultural Inspection at the Airport. Sometimes, certain flowers will not be allowed in, sometimes due to an insect or fungus, and we may have to make substitutions.

Perform your wedding in your hotel room or condo, or, 3.Try to arrange for another indoor location, or, 4. If possible, and agreed to by both parties, reschedule for another day. Some locations may require the payment of an additional fee by you outside this contract. If rescheduling for another day, there may be a fee per vendor canceled or rescheduled, as well as a second set of flowers must be paid for.
