      Hi there
      I'm getting married 4/25/09 at Maria Reina de la Paz in Marina Vallarta and their fee is $600 which includes all floral arrangements for the wedding-- which are quite nice, I saw photos of the arrangements when we went down there to place our deposit and reserve our reception site last week. e-mail me of you need more info.

      OMG are you kidding me Jess?!?!?!?! $1000 plus 15% tax? That price better be in pesos!!!!!!!!!!

      We had two medium sized but very elegant floral arrangements with white lilies and some other stuff. If you send me an email (I think you have my email already?) as a reminder, I will forward you a photo of my floral arrangements that we used. We paid $75 per arrangement, plus 15% tax, so about a total of $175 with the tax. We had the flowers on white column pedastals and they looked really nice.

      $1000 US is RIDICULOUS. Are you planning on filling the whole church with flowers? Or are you dead-set on using all orchids? Those are the only reasons I can think of why you might have been quoted $1K. Why don't you post some pics of your church where your ceremony is going to be and we can help you figure out how much you actually need so it looks decent without spending so much money. Honestly, oftentimes in a church, less is more when it comes to flowers. And there are tons of ways to do floral arrangements cheaper than you think, still using some of the flowers you want.
