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?
