roses are fairly inexpensive in mexico...they are grown hydroponically (sp?) in water there and throught south america...

I did not know that. I would guess they are charging you for the labour then. That is a lot if roses are so cheap.

My coordinator was able to order over 700 roses from mainland Mexico in RED (right before x-mas - worst time of the year for red colors) as well as red lilies and the total cost including shipping was $800 dls.

 

Then she hired a florist to do the labor for the wedding $200 dls for the day!!

Plus Half of that order was a rush order the day before the wedding because we ended up doing the church blessing!

 

I think if you shop arround you can do it.

Hi ladies, I'm new here, and am just starting to read posts. Saw this one, thought I'd jump in! I love flowers and have helped friends do flowers for their weddings. (But no, I'm not a florist!) I have a floral book that explains these.

 

Those "giant flower" bouquets are sometimes called "composite" bouquets, or "duchess roses". The reason they are so expensive isn't really the amount of roses or petals used, it's the fact that every single petal must be carefully hand wired, using very thin gauge wire, and then each petal is indivdually attached to the bouquet using floral tape. It is very time consuming and a huge pain in the butt, especially when you consider that there are dozens of rose petals surrounding the one rose in the middle! Gorgeous, yes, but a pain to make. So yeah, they are definitely charging for labor!

    • 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?
