Flower Availabilty in Vallarta?

Recommended Posts

Hi ladies, I am having a hard time choosing my bouquet. I had my heart set on a white calla lily bouquet, however my WC says these are very expensive. The thing is, I don't know what type of bouquet to look for if I don't know what is available.

 

PV brides, please share your bouquets with me :)

 

TIA

I recall someone here found the name of the florist Vallarta Adventures uses....find that post! I had white calla lillies (and roses), of course my bouquet was included in the package, but additional bouquets were reasonable and consisted of any flowers you wanted so they could have been calla lillies. I'm figuring the florist is inexpensive because I'm sure VA charges what they have to pay, you know?

 

 

If you can't find the post I'll ask my WC for you :)

Yes, I do remember. I guess I need to put pressure on my WC (who needs to put pressure on her vendor).

Wow! I cannot believe it is such a rip off! I can go to trader joes and purchase a bouquet for that price!

To be honest with you, I'm surprised that you can even get calla lillies in July. I order from 3 different vendors in GDL, when I'm doing an event, and calla lillies went "out of season" the beginning of May (because of the climate change, this was a bad year for callas) - my May bride wanted calla's too, but, as I couldn't get any, she asked for Stargazers and lillies instead. IF they can get your callas, I'm willing to bet they are being IMPORTED which would make them SUPER expensive (like with orchids and tulips which are always imported).

What SHOULD be available now:

Roses (ALWAYS available - and not uber expensive)
Alstromeria
Bethlehem Star
Calla Lillies
Cartemom
Casablanca
Cymbidium and dendrobium orchids (they are $$, eh!)
Delphenium
Gerber Daisies
Ginger
Gladiola
Heliconia
Iris
Irish Bells
Lily
Lisianthus
Mums
Tuberose
Stargazer
Tulips (these are $$ too)

Now knowing what sort of wedding you're having, my recommendations are:

Roses with Bethlehem Star and/or Dendrobium orchids
Roses with Lisianthius
Dendrobium orchids with Lisianthius
Roses and lillies
Bethlehem Star, Tuberoses and Lisianthius

Or you could try an all Casablanca bouquet. Huge flowers, smell great - but don't work so well with other flowers. Or maybe Casablancas with Bethlehem Star.

Hope that helped!

Interesting! I had them for my June wedding and they were flawless, I guess 2007 was a good year for calla lillies LOL

I didn't have a say in my bouquet, i just sent pics of flowers i wanted. I wanted ranaculus or peonies but didn't get them... I did love my flowers though. I think there were orange roses, irish bells and some other white flowers.

    • 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?
