    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!

          Great information - thanks for posting!
          I think I'm going to go with something somewhat simple and stick with roses and maybe some orchids...

              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!!

                  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?
