        I sent her the pictures. I'd found them online and sent it to her to make sure that she knew exactly what I was talking about. Also, I sent all the flower vendors the same email with the exact # of flowers for each bouquet etc.... I wanted to make sure that one wasn't cheaper because they would use less flowers.

          5 brides maids: 10 Tulips (light pink, yellow, red): $110USD each

          Centerpiece: Square 4X4 vase tied in a turquoise and brown ribbon with a peacock feather with 10 white tulips: $90USD

          What do you think

          These are the pictures I emailed them:

          I think that's pricey too... check the florist I'm using, she recomends not using tulips that time of the year also (something most local florist agree apparently) but their prices are more real considering it's Cabo. osCommerce I've speaking with Ms Mendez and she's very helpful claudiamd64@hotmail.com

          Have you research if you can import the flowers? I'm not sure if there's a law against it or not, but doesn't hurt to research a little bit, because flowers over there seem to be expensive.

          Happy planning!

          PS. I see you're getting married at Dreams. I quoted there and I love it, but they had this weird policy about ending the party at 11:30 pm tops 'cause the other guests may get upset. Did they told you the same? I think is crazy to end a party that starts at 5 at 11 personally.

          Just FYI (and sorry i'm late on this) but tulips are not native to cabo and have to be imported. they can only be imported from mexico city. that is why they are super expensive.

            After all the research we are going to use Mazarte (martha) flowers. She is lovely and to be honest her prices are equal to the flower cart, but her service is suppose to be wonderful. The O&O told me about her and she has been lovely. Let me know if I can help

              Hi November,

              If you don't mind asking, how many quotes you have?
              I'm waiting for Mazarte, Pamela, Florenta, I only have Rayen and flower cart.
              I want to compare my quotes against someone else's because I see huge differences between one florists.

              Can you send me your quote? Wich one you think is better?

              Thanks!

                Lola's prices were anywhere from $30 - $100 cheaper than other florist I priced out for the exact same thing. I had quotes from Cabo Flowers, Flower Cart, Palmela Floreria and some others as well. She's quite easy to talk to as well, and responds to emails quickly. Hope this helps!
                Thanks for including the contact info. I am going to email them and see what they quote me.

                  I think it's actually 10:30! I agree it's kind of early.
