My wedding coordinator said they need about 2 months before the wedding before they can say for sure what kind of flowers they can get. I really want peonies and she said they have usually been able to get those. Hopefully it will work out!!

I was set on real flowers until I joined this site. Since then, I have seen so many amazing photos of real touch "fake" flowers. It has made me change my mind completely. Not only are they cheaper, but you don't have to worry about availability in the region or season. The girls that post on here say their guests don't even notice. I can't find the thread, but one girl said one of her guests kept it in water the whole time and even told customs it was real. She had no idea! Hope this is helpful! I would definitely look into it!

Our friend had fake flowers at her wedding in Riviera Maya and they were very pretty! I personally would still like real flowers, but the alternative is great as well!!

Great list! I don't have a date yet but I've been definitely saving pictures of flowers. I love peonies and hydrangeas :( I guess we'll see what kind of flowers they can do. I like that poof look :)

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.

Thanks this is very helpful! I'm getting married July 17, 2015 at Moon Palace. Our wedding is almost here! I REALLY wanted a bouquet of bougainvillea but was told they would wilt and wouldn't be a good option for bouquets. I was also told bougainvillea was difficult to find, which I find unusual considering it grows almost everywhere in Mexico. 


Have any brides used bougainvillea in a bouquet? I can order it, but it sounds like it may cost more and be more trouble to find versus roses. If you have used it, could you please tell me which florist you ordered it from?

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • 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.
