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...

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • 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
