I saw this on a website and thought it was very helpful. When researching from the states it's so hard to figure out what flowers they have in Mexico. Here is a list of flowers that are easy to not so easy....

 

Almost all flowers are shipped in from Mexico City twice weekly to assure they are fresh and beautiful for your wedding day. Non-tropical flowers and orchids will be more expensive than flowers native to our region.

 

Non- tropical flowers, such as tulips and gardenias, are not recommended during most of the year since they will not withstand the heat. Gardenias should never be used in arrangements or bouquet since they bruise easily. They can be floated in gardenia bowls in cooler weather for table decorations, if they are available.

 

Bright tropical flowers such as Gerber Daisies, Anthurium, Bird of Paradise, Ginger and Heliconia are very popular as well as the traditional Roses and Lilies, including Stargazers and smaller versions. Another option is Bougainvillea, grown locally, and perfect for arches and beautiful tropical bouquets.

Another one to avoid is hybiscus. They have lots in Mexico (was all over my resort) but they wilt easily. Still, I have seen a few bouquets where others used them. The bouquet would need to be put together right before the ceremony and then I guess it could last a few hours. The florist who services my resort wouldn't do a hybiscus bouquet because she she prepares them first thing in the morning and delivers them early at the resort, no matter what time the ceremony is at. But there were so many around the resort I probalby could have just pulled them off the bushes and created my own bouquet!
