I am trying to decide on flowers for the wedding but am not very knowledgeable about the subject. I would like to Peonies and Orchids as my flowers. Does anyone know if these are flowers that will be in bloom in Mexico during my wedding?

My wedding is in May (although this year) and I am getting married in Cancun. I wanted peonies but they would have been super expensive. The florist said they were going to have to have them shipped in from Holland or something. Not sure if that is true or just an exageration. But I am going to use orchids, roses, cala lilies and stargazer lilies and they were all reasonably priced.

Maybe you should contact your resort! They might know what flowers will be in bloom and how much $$ you will have to spend.

Peonies and orchids are not native for this area and they both have to be shipped in. Therefore the price is usually more expensive then other flowers such as roses. Orchids are available, however they will always need to be pre ordered. they are usually shipped from Mexico City and have a fee of $20 each flower.

Peonies are not easy to find. I have never seen them here and think they are not available. You might indeed be able to ship them in from Holland however this is probably very expensive. THe other problem could be that they might not withstand the heath and humidity of this area.

 

I hope this information helps.

Peonies are always expensive and it depends on the type of orchid you are looking for. The dendrobiums are less than some of the others. You could look at getting your flowers done in silks...

I actually suggested doing silk to my MOH and she hated the idea. Maybe I need to get a few more opinions! LOL!

This is EXACTLY the information I was looking for. I am flower and plant retarded. My FI says I could kill a plastic plant! Anyway, I would like to get something native to the area so I am not stressing about the arrival if they need to be shipped! Thanks again!

wow! Is that how much orchids cost?? I see them everywhere in pictures I thought they would be more affordable. although i have no idea how much flowers are...but wow. well I guess the going rate for a bouquet is about $125...right? so...i guess that would be about 6 or so orchids...

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
